Tire Wear and Tread Depth

Tire tread helps your tires resist wear and damage and provides better traction on the road. 


There are many factors that can cause tire wear, such as your driving style, inclimate road conditions, and tire maintenance habits. Regular tire maintenance can help prolong the life of your tires.


Tire replacement is absolutely needed when the tread wear indicators appear. Built-in tread wear indicators look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and become visible as the tire's tread depth wears.


A quick and easy way to check your tire wear is with a penny. Place a penny upside down in between the tire tread as shown in the video. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, the treads are worn and tire replacement is needed. Check tread depth monthly, and replace tires at 3/32", any lower is unsafe and illegal in most states.

When to Replace Tires

Tread wear indicators appear when the tires only have 3/32" or less of tread remaining. Rubber in tires ages over time. Other warning signs include, the tire cord or fabric is showing through the rubber, the tire tread or sidewall is cracked, cut, or snagged deep enough to show cord or fabric, the tire has a bulge or split, or the tire has a puncture, cut, or other damage that can't be repaired correctly


If you are uncertain about the remaining life of your tires, feel free to stop by our Memphis tire shop and our experts can inspect them for you.


Wheel Alignment

Alignments improve performance and help tires last longer. If your vehicle is misaligned, it can cause your tires to wear unevenly, and you may experience handling problems such as pulling or abnormal vibration. 

Experts recommend an alignment after having a new set of tires installed or if your vehicle is pulling to the left or right. A tire that is out of balance often affects ride quality and can shorten the life of tires, bearings, shocks, and other suspension components. If the vehicle is vibrating when driving on a smooth road, the tires and wheels may need to be rebalanced.


Tire Rotation

Regular tire rotation extends the life of your tires and improves performance. Tires are rotated to achieve a uniform wear for all tires. Each tire performs different tasks (such as steering in front- versus rear-wheel drive), therefore tires wear at different rates. 


Tires should be rotated every 5,000-10,000 miles to prevent irregular tire wear. Check your owner's manual or a specialist in our service department to know what is best for your vehicle.


It's important to rotate your tires according to the correct tire-rotation pattern. Doing so will prolong the life of your tires and will reduce the risk of sudden tire failure. Front tires encounter different tasks than the rear tires. A front-wheel-drive car's tires perform different tasks than those on a rear-wheel-drive vehicle.


Tire Inflation

Proper inflation affects tread life, fuel economy, stopping distance, overall tire performance and more. To ensure your tires are properly inflated, check their air pressure monthly.


Check your tire pressure when the tires are cold, meaning the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours or no more than one mile. The Tire Information Label located on the inside of your doorframe has the recommended cold tire pressure for your vehicle. 


Inflation pressure maintenance of tires is critical for overall tire and vehicle performance. Maintaining the correct inflation pressure allows the tire to perform as intended, including for comfort, fuel economy, stopping distance, cornering, traction, tread wear, and noise.
