At Folsom Lake Ford, we do everything that we can to help drivers take the best possible care of their vehicle. That includes offering all types of maintenance services, including Ford tire service.
We’ll help your tires last as long as possible, but eventually they do need to be replaced. Fortunately, your tires do give you some signs that they are at the end of their life.
1. The Tread Depth
This is one of the clearest indicators that you need new tires. Tread depth of 1/16 of an inch shows that your tires are no longer able to offer the traction you need.
2. You See the Tread Wear Indicator Bars
Many newer tires have lines that run around your tires, but they’re not easy to see until your tread gets shallow. Once you can see these lines, it’s likely time to buy new tires.
3. Cracks and Other Damage
You also have to pay attention to the sides of the tires. If you see cracks, bulges, and obvious signs of damage, it’s time for new tires.
4. More Vibration Than Normal
Sometimes your car is going to vibrate due to a badly paved road or rough terrain, but if you’re noticing more vibration than usual or having a bumpy ride over well-paved roads, your old tires could be the problem.
5. Falling Air Pressure
If your tires are old and keep losing pressure, you may need new tires. Our technicians can check for other underlying issues and find you a new set of tires if you need them.
If you’re in need of replacement tires, don’t delay. The expert mechanics at our Ford dealership serving Sacramento will help you find new tires that will keep you safe on the road.
