When is it Time to Get New Tires?

As you tackle your daily drives, you'll want to keep an eye out for warning signs that your tires need extra attention. While excessive wear and tear may stand out, there are a variety of other telltale signs that your tires need to be replaced. Some of these signs may include:

  • Age - While your tires may seem to be in good condition, most manufacturers recommend changing them every six to ten years.
  • Performance - If you notice any issues while braking, this could signify that your tires can't supply the traction you need to tackle the roads ahead safely.
  • Exposure - If your vehicle has been exposed to freezing temperatures or excessive heat, you'll want to inspect them thoroughly for any damage.
  • Irregular Tread - If you notice irregular wear on your tires' tread, your vehicle may be suffering from misalignment. However, you may just want to schedule a tire rotation to create a more even tread wear throughout your tires.
  • Bulges or Bubbles - Hitting large potholes or curbs can cause damage to the internal frame of your tire. When this occurs, air pressure can leak out into the outer layers. This damage can be dangerous, often resulting in a tire blowout.

The Penny Test

Tread depth is measured in 32nds of an inch. New tires for your Chevy usually have a tread depth measuring 10/32 inches or 11/32 inches - about a third of an inch. If your Chevy uses winter tires, you can expect your tires to have a deeper tread. As a rule of thumb, the U.S. Department of Transportation recommends replacing your tires when their depth reaches 2/32 inches. Using just a penny, you can test your tread depth quickly and easily.

  • Place your penny into the tire tread groove with Lincoln's head face first into the groove.
  • Check where Lincoln's face is within the grooves.
  • If his head disappears, your tread is still above the 2/32 mark.
  • If you can see some of Lincoln's face, you'll want to proceed with caution and start thinking about purchasing new tires and scheduling a tire change.
  • If you can see all of his face, it's time to replace your tire.
  • Repeat these steps on each tire and in different areas.

You can also invest in a tread depth gauge or tread wear indicator bars for an alternative to the penny test.
