Limerick, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/14/2019 -- While tires are a key component of a vehicle, drivers often overlook their maintenance and upkeep. Over time, tires become worn out, causing them to perform at a lower rate than they were initially designed to. Piazza Subaru, the leading car dealership in Berks County, advises drivers to be aware of the signs indicating it may be time to replace existing tires.
There are many different signs to look out for when considering tire replacement. Common indicators include steering wheel vibration, tread depth, and cracks along the sidewall of tires. Drivers will often notice their steering wheel and car shaking at around 40-50 mph. While there are many contributors to this issue, signs are often pointed towards unbalanced or misaligned tires. If tires are not the cause of intense car vibrations, they are likely damaging tire treads and wearing them out further. Drivers are advised to monitor tires if they experience vigorous shaking or vibrations throughout their car or in their steering wheel.
Tires are designed to provide solid traction on the road, which is the reason they hold up and perform so well under various weather conditions. When tires wear out, they lose traction and become vulnerable to punctures and cracks. It is important to note that a tire tread depth of 2/32nds of an inch has exhausted its performance capabilities and should be immediately replaced. Another indication that tires should be replaced is if cracks appear along the side wall. These cracks can be caused by excessive heat, sun exposure, or natural wear and tear over time.
Driver safety is of the utmost importance to Piazza Subaru, which is why it is important to note the above signs of tire wear. Those interested in new Subaru models, such as the Subaru WRX, should visit https://www.piazzasubaru.com/. For questions or inquiries, please call them at 888-690-2369.
