Tires are an essential part of the performance and safety aspects of your vehicle. The tires help provide the smooth ride and easy handling Nissan owners have come to love and to provide a high measure of safety since it is the tires that keep the car on the road. Tires also help you to stop your car more quickly because of the friction that exists between the rubber on the tire and the asphalt and concrete on the road. When the time comes to replace old and worn tires or fix and patch a tire in the St. Joseph, Missouri, area, you should come to Rolling Hills Nissan.
You should replace your tires when it becomes clear that they are a safety hazard. Balding tires with less than 2/32 inches of tread left at its thinnest spot should be replaced. When the tread is this low, the tire will lose the ability to grip the road under different weather conditions. For instance, rain, slush, and snow can come between the tire and the asphalt which will cause you to slide across and off the road. The easiest way to check for proper tread depth is to use a penny with Lincoln’s head on it and stick it into the thinnest part of the thread. Slide the penny with Lincoln’s head first into the thread. If you can see the head, the tire needs to be changed.
