Time for New Tires?

Tire wear depends on several factors, including your driving style and tire maintenance habits. But one sure way to know it’s time is when treadwear indicators appear. A tire’s built-in treadwear indicators are “wear bars” that look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and appear when it’s time to replace the tire.
You also need a new tire if:
You can see three or more treadwear indicators around the tire
Cord or fabric is showing through the rubber
The tread or sidewall is cracked, cut or snagged deep enough to show cord or fabric
The tire has a bulge or split
The tire has a puncture, cut, or other damage that can’t be repaired correctly
