What is a tire? When Do I have to replace my tire? Which tire is the best for my car? A used tire or a new one? These are the most common question we should ask every single day. We have decided to show you how an old tire can get a brand new face with a simple scam.
After seeing this I hope that you will think twice when you decide to buy a used tire. And now let’s ask to our previous questions.
The state of your car tires is critical to the safety, performance and efficiency of the vehicle. According to report published by NHTSA, about 200 fatalities annually are happening due to a tire failure. When you decide to change your tire you should know if you have traveled lots of miles or not.
If you are identifying with the first person described there, than you should pick for a new tire. It helps you to achieve a better fuel consumption and also a better dynamics. If you don’t travel that much (less than 5.000 miles a year) than you should buy a used tire. It will provide you a good dynamic with lower costs. We also can’t decide which tire is the best for your car. It always will depend on your financial situation.
A tire should be replaced when the rolling surface has reached the tread wear bars. What is that? A tread wear bar is a small bridge between the treads, or running across the tire.
If you don’t know how to do that, we recommend you to do the “penny test”. Pick-up a penny and place it upside down with Lincoln facing you in the center of the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head you should replace the tires immediately. If you can see only the Lincoln’s hair, than you should go to shop some tires. Hope we have helped you and don’t forget to be aware while buying used tires.
