New Tires and Tire Repair in Sidney

At some point all tires may need repair or replacement. When the tires are too damaged for repairs, or the tread is very thin, it becomes essential to replace them for vehicle and passenger safety. According to most manufacturers, and even the law in most provinces, your tires should be replaced when the tread depth reaches 4/32” on winter tires and 2/32″ on summer tires. If your tread depth wears to those levels, your tires are considered bald and a safety hazard.

Tire Care and Replacement

Tires face the worst of weather, friction, and pressure every day and are essential for your vehicle’s safety. At Clair Downey Service, we understand that proper care and timely intervention can help you save money and avoid accidents when it comes to tires. Here are some tips that you can follow:

  • Ensure that you get your tire alignment checked at least once a year.

  • Avoid running your vehicle on low tire pressure.

  • Try to get your tires rotated & rebalanced whenever you get an oil change.

If you have followed all this and still feel that your tires aren’t working well, it might be time to replace them. Here are some signs that suggest you need to change your tires:

  • Your tires should be replaced when the tread depth reaches 4/32” on winter tires and 2/32″ on summer tires.

  • Tires are constantly exposed to friction and the elements. After a certain period, it can get too much for your tires to handle and constant unexplained air leaks and punctures can be a sign.
