While your tires should be inspected during normal maintenance, it’s even more important that you’re able to keep an eye on them yourself. Knowing a couple of things to watch for will help make sure that you reduce your risk of experiencing a blowout or a tire-wear related accident. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Check the tread wear at least monthly. Note any abnormal wear (inner edge, outer edge, center wear, etc.).

  • Check for cracks, splits and other damage in the sidewalls of your tires.

  • Check for bulges under the tread, as this can indicate a broken belt.

  • Check to see if the wear indicators are visible in your tread. If they are, it’s time to start considering replacement.
