What Can Wear Down Tires Prematurely?

Your vehicle's tires truly are essential to your safety on the road. A good set of tires will ensure that your car has proper traction with any service so that you can travel safely through any weather condition. While tires typically last anywhere from 60,000 to 75,000 miles, you may find yourself needing new tires quicker than expected if your tires have worn out prematurely. 

What can cause tires to wear out prematurely?

  • Out of alignment wheels
  • Bad shocks or struts 
  • Over or under-inflated tires
  • Failing to have your tires regularly balanced and rotated
  • Worn out suspension parts

All of the above can cause your tires to wear down excessively and unevenly, which is why regular tire maintenance and vehicle inspections are important. Tires can be costly, and good vehicle maintenance will save you money on tires in the long run. 

How do you know if your tires are too worn? Check out the image above - the tire on the left is in great condition, while the tire on the right is severely worn. As soon as you notice that the tire tread is looking flat, we invite you into our shop for an inspection. We can take a look and determine if you need a new set of tires. 

If you do need a new set, we can help you choose an option that is best for both your vehicle and your budget, and install your new set right here at our shop. If you need assistance with tires, don't hesitate to give us a call here at Honest Wrenches or stop by our shop for service today!
