3 Signs That It's Time for a New Set of Tires

Not all tire damage comes in the form of a visible puncture or a flat. Sometimes, tires may suffer wear and tear that isn't readily seen. With regular visual inspections and air pressure checks, you can make sure you're not riding around Salem on unsafe rubber. Below are a few signs that it's time for new tires.

  • Chunking: If your tires are missing pieces, it's time for a new set. This type of damage occurs for a couple of reasons, with suspension problems and heat being the most common culprits.
  • Bumps, bubbles, and bulges: This type of damage typically results from sharp impacts that damage the tire's inner liner, and it can cause a dangerous blowout.
  • Tread separation: This sort of damage is often indicated by a vibration you can feel while driving. While it's usually due to manufacturing defects, severe wear and bad roads may cause it in some cases.

Tires are the only thing keeping you in touch with the road, and their condition helps keep you safe. The service team at Volkswagen of Salem will help you ensure that your tires stay in a safe, usable condition. Call today for more details or to schedule an appointment for service.
