Frederick, MD Tire Services
Tires wear eventually and the tread gets thin. This results in the wheels losing traction especially in bad weather. This creates safety risks that can be avoided by replacing tires before they become unsafe. Many manufactures suggest tires not be used for longer than 10 years because the rubber dry rots, cracks, and becomes weak over time. It is more common that tires just plain wear out from everyday use. Wear happens with regular driving. Driving habits, roadway conditions, and weather lead to wear and can reduce the life of tires. You need new tires if the following conditions exist:
- Your tread is below 4/32, or cannot pass the “penny” test.
- The tread depth is level with the built-in tread bars.
- Irregular tread wear such as flat spots or chopping.
- Bulges, bumps or soft spots on the tire.
- Damage to the tire that can’t be mended.

What are the Benefits of Correct Wheel Alignment?
Are wheel alignments a part of proper auto repair services? Absolutely! A proper wheel alignment will keep your vehicle running safely by helping reduced premature tire wear, promote better gas mileage, and safer driving conditions. If your wheels are out of alignment your tires will experience uneven tread wear. Uneven tread wear can be felt when your car begins pulling to the right or left while you are driving down the road. Left uncorrected wheel alignment issues have the potential to turn into steering or suspension problems because driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on the suspension and steering components. If your vehicle begins pulling to the right or left while driving, or if you feel a vibration in the steering wheel at higher speeds, contact Carriage House Automotive for a wheel alignment service.
Safe tires can help ensure a safe ride. Putting off the replacement of worn tires can result in accidents.
