2020 Toyota Land Cruiser

Driving through the College Station, Navasota, Hearne or other Texas areas can take a toll on your tires lifespan. It’s important to look for the telltale signs of wear on your tires before any unexpected accidents or sudden damage occurs. To avoid tire failure, try making it a habit to perform a monthly tire inspection on your vehicle. Here are a few methods to try when checking your tires:

The Penny Test

Make sure to monitor the tread on your tires with the famous Penny Test. To test if the tire tread is low, place a penny heads upside down between the tread. If the top of Lincoln’s head is still showing, then it’s an indication of tire wear.

 

Shake and Vibration

When you’re driving and notice your wheel start to shake and vibrate, this is a sign of unbalanced tires, and the vibration will eventually cause tire damage.

 

Examine the Sidewall

If you notice any cracks or slits along the tire sidewall, there might be a leak progressing throughout your tire.

 

Weak Surface Areas

While examining your tire, make note if there are any bulges or weak spots on the outer rubber. These protruding areas can eventually cause the tire to pop.
