When to Change Your Tires
WHEN DO I NEED TO PURCHASE NEW TIRES?
Despite their importance, most drivers can think of other ways they’d rather spend their money than on new tires. Still, your tires play an important role in the safety and efficiency of your car, so the purchase of new tires when needed is vital. At Gulfport Nissan, we strive to make your tire purchasing experience easy and cost effective. Read on to determine if it’s time to bring your vehicle to our dealership in Gulfport for new tires.
DECREASED TREAD DEPTH
The rule of thumb is to never let your tread height fall below 1.6 millimeters. Of course, if you drive often on wet surfaces, you might need more than that. Check your tread regularly to ensure that you still have enough to keep you safe on the road. If not, contact Gulfport Nissan to make an appointment to talk about new tires.
CRACKED OR BULGING SIDEWALLS
A visual inspection of your sidewall will uncover any issues. Look for grooves in the side of your tire. If you spot some, this could be a sign that your tire is developing a leak. In the worst case scenario, you could end up experiencing a dangerous blowout on the road. Bring your vehicle to Gulfport Nissan service department, and we’ll ensure you’re safe on the road.
VIBRATION WHEN DRIVING
If you begin to notice increased vibration on your road, your tires could be misaligned or you could need new tires. Sometimes vibration can indicate an issue inside the tire. The service technicians at Gulfport Nissan can isolate the issue and take steps to repair it.
