Cracks and Bulges | Tires, Car Care

Those unsightly cracks and bulges on the sides of your tires are a warning sign that your tires need replacing.

You're planning to go over to the mall to sign the kids up for Fireballs baseball, but you're wondering if you need to do a bit of car care before you head that way. You noticed last night that your tires have lots of cracks on the side and one has a kind of bulge, or blister, and you're not sure if it's anything to worry about.

Well, yes, it is.

As Consumer Reports points out, a bulge or blister on the sidewall is a sign you need to "replace the tire at once. These signal potential weak spots that could lead to tire failure." Other early warning signals that your tires could need replacing: cracking or cuts in the sidewalls, uneven tread wear, excessively worn tread, or excessive vibration.

Sounds as if you need to drop by Don's Tire and Service to let our certified car care technicians take a look at your tires. Even if you don't have any of those warning signals, it's a good idea to get your tires regularly checked as a part of good car care. After all, your tires are the one part of your car that are in direct contact with the road.
