December 1st, 2021 by

If you aren’t sure if you need to rotate, repair, or replace your car tires, Hughes Subaru has your back. Our service team is ready to help by explaining the benefits and how a tire rotation will extend the life of your tires by evenly distributing the wear across all four tires. But there are also other indications that you need to rotate or replace your current set of tires for safe driving in Monroe and Winder, GA.

When Do I Need to Rotate My Tires?

Tires are the only parts of your vehicle that touch the road and rotate constantly, which means they wear faster than other parts of your car. It’s a great practice to have them rotated every 5,000- to 10,000-miles or at each oil change service appointment.

Should I Replace My Tires?

If your tires show any of the following signs, you’ll need to replace one or more. As a general rule, if the treads have less than 1/16-inch of rubber remaining, it’s time to get new tires. If your tires have a puncture that cannot be fixed, you should consider replacing the tire. Other signs you’ll need to consider replacing your tires, include:

  • cracked sidewalls
  • split or bulging tires
  • tire fabric that shows rubber

When your tires are rotated, the wheels are aligned to help in prolonging the lifespan of the tires for your drives around the Watkinsville area.
