Tire Replacements in Wilmington NC
Unsurprisingly, cars don’t move very well without good tires. Over time, the rubber on your tires will wear and lose traction. You may also unexpectedly get a tire punctured by a loose nail or another sharp object in the road. When this happens, your tire may or may not be fixable with some patching depending on the puncture location. No matter if your tires are worn or going flat, we will check and replace the tires on your vehicle here at D&E Mitsubishi!
When is a Tire Too Worn to Drive?
You may have already heard of the quarter test when you check how worn your tires are. Using a quarter, place it between the thread with the president’s head facing you and upside down. If the head disappears, you are above 4/32 of an inch of tread. If you can see the entire head, it’s time to replace the tires as they won’t be getting the needed traction anymore. Not changing your tires when they’re too worn can be very dangerous while driving, especially in slippery conditions. Your car may have a hard time getting traction as well as braking. Not only that, but the tires won’t be able to hold air pressure well and can lead to tire blowouts. If your tire blows, you can easily lose control of your car, leading to an extremely dangerous situation. Due to this, make sure you check your tires often!
