Of all the things that are part of keeping up with the maintenance on your vehicle, one of the most important is tire replacement.

Don’t put you and your family’s safety at risk when we can take care of your tire replacement at a price more affordable than you might think.
There isn’t a solid formula for determining when tire replacement is needed because there are so many variables that can cause your tires to wear differently over time.
Unfortunately, you cannot just go by number of miles driven or even a set tread depth to determine whether your tires need replacing. However, our experts at Kevin’s Car Repair & Body Shop LLC can assess your tires and let you know whether tire replacement should be done now or whether you have some more time on them. We can also give you an estimate of the remaining time they have left, although it will depend on various factors that cannot be predicted, so this will only be an estimate.
When it comes to tire tread depth as one of the indications, we also look at the season of the year because you will need more tread depth remaining in the winter than you will on dry roads. This is an essential part of having better traction, and therefore improved safety and control. You also need more in the spring when there are wet roads. Another thing we look at is the age of your tires. If your tires are more than 5 years old, they may exhibit signs of aging even if they haven’t been driven much. Even tires that have only been stored and not used at all will eventually not be usable.
There are a few good times when you may want to inquire about the condition of your tires, including when you come in for a routine oil change or believe you need a wheel alignment. If you have been driving your vehicle with your wheels out of alignment for any length of time, it can cause your tires to wear unevenly, making them less safe for the road.
Good tires are an investment for your vehicle, and not just in terms of money. They are an investment in the control you have on the road, and in the safety of yourself, your passengers, and other drivers in the Columbus, Ohio area.
