Are you finding that you have been visiting your auto shop more frequently than usual for urgent tire service? You may be looking at having to replace your old tires. Although you know that new tires will provide you with a smoother ride and safer vehicle, you cringe at the thought of putting out so much money on a new set of tires.

But you wonder, how often should you change your car’s tires? Will they last a while longer? Here are two easy methods of determining when it’s time to replace your old tires:

  • Penny test. Place a Lincoln penny upside down into the tread. Test several spots about 15 inches apart as the tread wears unevenly. If you see most of Lincoln’s head, it’s time for new tires.
  • Wear Bars. Most newer tires have built-in “wear bars.” If this bar is visible (flush with the outside of the tread), it’s time for new tires.

If performed on a regular basis, these tire service tips will help your tires give you many miles of safe driving:

  • Check inflation pressure frequently as it fluctuates with changing temperatures. The correct air pressure will help your vehicle handle better, and increase fuel efficiency.
  • To keep tread wear even on all tires, rotate them about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles.
  • Check wheel alignment about every other oil change. Has it adjusted as needed?
  • Inspect your tires for cuts in the rubber and sidewalls, and for uneven tread wear.
  • Avoid excessive pressure on tires by staying below the maximum load capacity.

Unusual vibrations or other steering problems are signs of a bad tire. Slow down, drive with caution, and head to a tire service shop. Or, if you cannot keep driving safely, change out the bad tire with the spare if possible. Or, in the worst scenario, it may be necessary to for towing service.
