Is it Time to Change Your Tires?

Your car's tires are among its most essential parts. That much goes without saying. Unfortunately, tires don't last forever and they do need to be changed periodically to make sure that your vehicle runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. But how do you know when you need to replace your tires? And what do you do when it's time? What happens if you don't change them?

When to Change Your Tires

If your tires are damaged or too worn down, they can be a safety hazard. Worn tires have a harder time gaining traction on the road which can increase the amount of time it takes you to stop and damage your car's fuel efficiency. You can perform a quick check yourself to see what kind of shape your tires are in by slipping a penny head-first into the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, you need to replace your tires as soon as possible.
