Warning signs you need new tires
We all push the limits of our vehicles, but ignoring the warning signs that you need new tires can leave you stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire.

Levin Tire and Service Center in Highland, IN wants you to know the warning signs that can indicate it’s time to have them replaced.

Low tread depth
Your tire tread should never be lower than 1/16 of an inch. To measure this, take a penny and place it in the tread with Lincoln’s head closest to the tire. If you can see the entire head, it’s time to replace your tires.

Cracks
Cracks in your tire can mean a couple of different things: 1. you’re potentially leaking air, and 2. it may not be far from blowing out. That’s why you should come in to Levin Tire and Service Center to have our experts inspect your tires and let you know if their lifetime is nearing an end.

Bulges on the side
As the outer wall of your tire begins to weaken, you may notice a bulge to form. This weak spot is a sure sign that your tire is about to blow and you should get to the nearest service center right away.

Vibrations
You may always notice a little vibration when you drive, but you can almost always tell when something isn’t right. A constant vibration could mean a problem with your suspension, shock absorbers or the tires themselves.

If you think it’s time for your vehicle to have new tires, schedule an appointment at the Levin Tire and Service Center in Highland, IN by calling 219-595-9450 or schedule one online.
