Affordable Tire Installation
Your vehicle's tires make constant contact with the road. Over time and with normal wear-and-tear, your tires become worn down. This can be dangerous when braking on wet or Toronto's snow-covered roads. Hydroplaning occurs when the tire's grooves are so worn down that they don't channel water out from beneath the tread. When this happens, your treads only skim the water's surface and the steering wheel won't respond. Keeping your all season and winter tires in working condition helps to prevent accidents in bad weather conditions.
How do I know if I need new tires?
- If your tread depth is below 1.6 millimeters (1/16 of an inch ). To get a rough idea of your tread depth, use a penny and insert it "head down" into the tread. If you can see Queen's entire head, you need new tires.
- Look to see if your tread wear indicator bar is visible. Flat rubber bars run perpendicular to the tread. If you see them, it's time for new tires.
- Your tire's sidewall is showing visible cracks or cuts. Take this seriously; your tires may soon start to leak.
- Your tires have developed bulges or blisters. Weak spots on tires show up around blisters or bulges and can blow out your tires.
