Hayden Lake New Tires
Your vehicle’s tires are crucial to its safe operation. The tires have a big job to do. They must support the car’s weight, send traction and brake force to the road surface, and absorb the shock from bumps in the road. To ensure the tires can accomplish these tasks properly, you should have them checked regularly. A qualified service technician can examine the tires for signs of wear and deterioration. It may sometimes be possible to repair damaged tires, but many problems will require you to buy replacement tires. Fortunately, if you live in Hayden Lake, new tires are easy to get when you visit Knudtsen Chevrolet in Post Falls.
A tire’s tread depth is important for it to function properly. Tire tread provides the traction necessary to drive safely on wet and slippery roads. The grooves in the tire’s tread channel water away from the surface of the tire. Tires with worn tread are unable to move the water away from the tire’s surface, causing the car to hydroplane. In this case, the vehicle is driving on a sheet of water instead of the road surface. Hydroplaning is a dangerous condition that can cause the driver to lose control of the car, leading to an accident.
There’s an easy way to tell if you need new tires near Hayden Lake. Check the tire tread using a penny. Press the penny into the grooves on the tire’s tread with Lincoln’s head pointing down. If the tread hides part of Lincoln’s head, the tires are safe to drive with. If the tires fail the penny test, the tread is too shallow, and the tires will need to be replaced.
Another indication the tires need to be replaced is their age. The tread may look fine, but old tires aren’t safe to drive on because the rubber compound breaks down over time. Some tire manufacturers recommend buying replacement tires every six years, while others recommend that drivers purchase new tires after 10 years. If you’re not sure when to replace your vehicle’s tires, check with the manufacturer or visit the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center. We’ll inspect your car’s tires and let you know when it’s time to replace them.
