While drivers in Ontario, CA, don't have to worry about snowy roads and freezing conditions, it's still a good idea to check your tires seasonally. Tires may not get the same attention that oil changes and brake service do, but they are crucial for your vehicle's safety and handling. At Volvo Cars Ontario, we serve Riverside and beyond by offering expert tire service as well as high-quality tires.

How Do You Know It's Time for New Tires?

The most common concern for tires is whether there is sufficient tire tread. The tread on tires, which is the rubber grooves on the circumference of your tires, gets worn away over time and becomes less effective. As this happens, tires become less responsive, have a higher risk of popping, and longer stopping distances.

Corona drivers can check their tires for themselves by placing a penny head-first into several grooves across and around each tire. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, then the tread is too shallow and needs replacing. If it remains covered, then you have at least 2/32 of an inch left, which means that you probably don't need new tires just yet.

Some other red flags that Irvine drivers can look out for that may indicate they need new tires include:

  • Tires that are older than ten years of age
  • Gashes or cuts
  • Deep cracking
  • Punctures

How Do You Choose New Tires?

There are two factors that Rancho Cucamonga drivers should consider when buying new tires: the type of tire that is right for your driving conditions and habits and then the type of tires that are right for your vehicle. Check your owner's manual or the inside of the driver's side doorjamb to learn about the tires your vehicle requires.
