Knowing when to replace your tires is crucial for maintaining safe driving conditions. Here are some key indicators that you might need new tires:

  1. Tread Depth

Legal Limit: Most places have a legal limit for tread depth (often 2/32 of an inch or 1.6mm).

Tread Wear Indicator Bars: Modern tires have built-in tread wear indicators — raised sections at the bottom of the tread grooves. When the tread is worn down and level with these bars, it’s time for new tires.

  1. Age of the Tires

Manufacturers’ Recommendation: Most manufacturers recommend replacing tires every 6-10 years, regardless of wear.

  1. Visible Damage

Bulges and Blisters: These can indicate a weak spot in the tire, which could lead to a blowout.

Cuts and Cracks: Look for significant cuts and cracks in the sidewall. If you notice any, it’s time to replace the tire.

Punctures: While some punctures can be repaired, larger punctures and those near the sidewall usually mean the tire needs to be replaced.

  1. Vibration or Unusual Noises

If you notice unusual vibrations or noises while driving, it could indicate an issue with your tires, such as misalignment or an internal problem with a tire.

  1. Low Tire Pressure

If you consistently need to add air to a tire, it might have a slow leak and may need to be replaced.

In Ontario, winter tires are not legally required for all vehicles. However, they are highly recommended during the winter months, typically from December to March, due to the snowy and icy conditions that can make driving hazardous. If you are unsure if you need winter tires for your vehicle, we always suggest prioritizing safety. Using winter tires enhances safety and can prevent accidents during the winter months.

Yes, new tires should always be balanced when they are mounted on wheels. Balancing tires ensures that the weight is evenly distributed around the entire circumference of the unit. Properly balanced tires provide a smoother ride, ensure the wear is even, provide the best possible traction increasing safety and offers optimal performance.

Getting your vehicle’s wheels aligned is crucial for ensuring that your vehicle drives straight and doesn’t pull to one side, and also for preventing uneven tire wear. Here are some general guidelines about when you should have an alignment completed on your vehicle:

Time Frame: You should have an alignment complete at least every 2-3 years, refer to your owner’s manual for specific recommendations.

New Tire Instillation: Whenever you get new tires installed, it’s a good practice to get the alignment checked to ensure that the new tires do not wear unevenly.

When Noticing Irregular Tire Wear: If you notice that your tires are wearing unevenly, it might be an indication that your vehicle is out of alignment. 

Experiencing Steering Issues: I f you notice that your car drifts to one side when you’re driving on a straight, level road, it might be due to improper alignment.

After an Accident or Hitting an Obstacle: I f you’ve been involved in a collision or if you’ve hit something like a curb or pothole at high speed, having your alignment checked is wise as these incidents can throw off the alignment.
