Bad tires can make your vehicle difficult to drive or create a
driving hazard, because balding or misaligned tires will slip in certain weather conditions. In addition, if your tires are not
properly inflated, by being under or over inflated, your ties can wear down prematurely which will require a
new set of tires. Even without premature wear, tires need to be replaced a few times during the span of your
Itís important to check your tires at least once a month to see signs of advanced wearing on the inner and
outer side of the tires, or if one side of the tire is wearing faster than the other. If
you notice either of these premature conditions, then you should consider purchasing new set of tires from our
Some tires have wear-indicators that will notify you that it is time for a new set of tires. If you do not
have these indicators, you can use the penny test to determine if your tires are good. This test requires you
to insert a penny into a tread groove with Lincolnís head upside down. If you can see the top of Lincolnís
head, then you need new tires.
Of course, the best way to ensure that your tires are safe to drive on is to visit our shop once a month so
that we can properly inspect them for you.

The numbers in the tire size refer to its width,
aspect ratio, and wheel diameter. "185/75R14" means the tire is
185 mm wide, has an aspect ratio (that is, the width divided by
the height) of 75%, and fits on a 14" rim.
"R" means radial tire. They're all radials nowadays. Speed
ratings are usually inserted before the "R." The most common
speed ratings are HR (good for 130mph), VR (149 mph), and ZR
(more than 149 mph).
5 Signs You Need New Tires
Checking a car's tires for wear and tear
According to the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), tire failure causes around 11,000 car crashes each year. The NHTSA
recommend doing a quick tire inspection once a month.
Hereís What To Look For:
Bulges, gouges or cracks
When a tire deflates, it bulges at the sides. This is a sign of low tire pressure or a slow air leak.
If you see cracks in the sidewall, gouges or anything that looks odd, bring your vehicle into
Automotive Specialty Services in Avon Ohio and have us take a look at it.
The old-school penny test is one way to check your treads: Place a penny into the tread, with
Lincolnís head pointing down. If you can still see the top of his noggin, the tread is dangerously
low. Most modern tires, however, have wear bars: bits of rubber woven into the pattern at a specific
depth. You can find the wear bars that go across the groove, and if the tread pattern is worn down to
that wear bar, you need to replace your tire.
Tires deflate at a rate of about one pound per square inch (PSI) per month. Youíre not going to wear
your tires down in a month, but you should check that you have the right inflation pressure.
Tire pressure drops in extreme cold. The challenge in summer, is excessive heat buildup in the tire.
If youíre heading out on a road trip with an under inflated tire, it will generate more heat and wear
Watch out for vibration or thumping when youíre driving. If it feels like itís coming from under the
seats, the rear tires may be out of balance. Vibration from the steering wheel could indicate
suspension issues. Anything less than a smooth ride means you should take your car to Automotive
Specialty Services in Avon Ohio.
When itís time to replace your tires, it is recommended doing so in pairs or all four at a time for
better performance and traction and, ultimately, a safer ride.
