Don’t risk a blowout! Know the signs of worn and damaged tires

April 4th, 2018 by


Every driver should know the signs of a worn or damaged tire. At BMW of Ridgefield, we want you to have high quality tires to keep you safe while you drive.

Tire wear happens naturally as you drive. If the tread depth gets too small, your tires will need replacement. To check your tread depth, stick a penny into the treads head-first. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s time for some new tires.

Damaged tires can blow out, creating a dangerous situation if you’re driving. Look for cracks and bulges on the tire’s outer wall. If your tire won’t maintain pressure, there’s a good chance your tire has a leak somewhere. You might notice a nail or metal object sticking into the tire treads.

If you aren’t sure if your tires need replacement, our team of experts at BMW of Ridgefield can help! Schedule an inspection today.
