How to Know When Your Tires Need Changing

Have you ever wondered if it's time to change your tires, but you weren't sure what to use as a gauge? While there is no substitute for your own mechanic's advice, Green Spring Tractor has a few ways for you to use when assessing the condition of your tires.

Check Your Legal Requirements

First things first, make sure your tires conform to the legal requirements in your state. Speak with your local office and find out what is required for you to pass inspection should it occur. The last thing you want to happen is have your car impounded because your tires were just 1mm less than the law requires.

Check the Depth

The best way to do this is to get a small and cheap tire depth testing device. This can help to give you an accurate measurement of your tread, and help should the above event occur. Once you have made sure that your tires not only meet, but surpass the legal requirement, it's time to move onto their general condition.

How's the Tread?

Remember that it isn't just braking that your tires need to manage, they also need to effectively draw the water away to enable good traction, so give some extra time to turn and really inspect the condition of your tire tread. If you see any damage or marks, show your local tire professional and get their advice - don't risk driving on unsafe tires.
