Signs You Need to Change Your Volvo Tires

Volvo cars, SUVs, and wagons have a well-earned reputation for reliability, and they can be driven for hundreds of thousands of miles when properly maintained. There isn’t a set time limit for changing your Volvo tires. Factors such as tire design, weather and road conditions around Waterloo region, and tire maintenance will determine the lifespan of your tires. That’s why making a point of regularly inspecting your tires is so important. Here are a few signs that could mean it’s time for a new set of tires:

  • The tread is worn down almost all the way: An easy way to check the tire tread is to place a quarter penny into the tread with the top of the Queen’s head facing down. If the top of the Queen’s head is covered by the tread, your tires are fine. If the top of her head is entirely visible, you should replace your tire as soon as possible.
  • There are cracks in the rubber: Any signs of cracks on the sidewalls or tread can cause the steel in the treads to separate, which creates a hazardous driving situation.
  • Uneven tread wear: This can mean that you need your wheels aligned or a tire rotation to help them wear more evenly. If they are too worn down, you’ll need to have them replaced.
