Tire tread depth is measured in 32nds of an inch. Tread material in new tires is usually measured at 9/32 to 11/32 of tread material. You need to be concerned if the tread has worn down to 2/32.
Even if the tread is fine, if your tire is showing bulges, you need to replace them immediately.
If your steering wheel is vibrating, it’s a sure sign that there might be poor alignment or that your tires have been worn down. It is important to have a professional determine the reason for vibration.
Tire sidewalls will crack if the tires have aged. Cracks are typically caused by environmental conditions such as extreme heat or sunlight as well. Cuts on the other hand can be caused by force such as when hitting rocks.
Leaving something lodged in your tire can be dangerous or costly in the future. If a nail or stone is stuck, it could lead to moisture leaking into the tire causing the steel components to rust. They can also cause your tires to blow out.
Keep an eye out for abnormal wear patterns. These might represent improper inflation pressure, misalignment, a need for a tire rotation, or potentially even all of these.
A damaged valve cap can cause air to leak out and allow dirt, moisture and other debris to enter the tire.
