Signs You Need New Tires

Your average set of tires should be good for at least three to four years, if not a little longer. All tires have an expiration date, which our Ford service technicians can help you locate, but individual tire replacement timing depends on everything from weather to driving habits and the condition of your vehicle. 

There are some important warning signs you can be mindful of that indicate your tires are on their way out.

  • Visual signs of damage: Do your best to check your tires once a month for tears or gouges. If you do come across an issue, bring your vehicle to our Ford service center for immediate attention.
  • Shallow tread: If you haven’t already tried it, use a penny to check your tires’ tread levels. Simply place the penny into the grooves of your tires with President Lincoln's head face down. If the top of his head is visible, it may be time for tire replacement.
  • Inability to maintain proper pressure: Struggles with keeping the right inflation level could be a strong indicator that your tire or tires are nearing the end of their lifespan.
  • Rougher ride quality: When driving becomes bumpier or noisier, this also points to needing a tire replacement, or an inspection at the very least.
