Cleaning your tires and making sure they have the proper air pressure is a good idea. So is requesting a tire inspection when bringing a car to a mechanic for routine maintenance. Still, problems can happen at any time without warning. For example, if the wheels are knocked out of alignment, the tires could wear down. Other severe problems due to age and use can happen to the tires. So, a driver should be aware of red flags indicating its time to replace the tires.

Low treads become unavoidable with use. The roads in Chattanooga wear treads down. Once the treads become too low, you have to replace the tires. Poor treads mean next to no traction, and that can lead to an accident.

And look for any physical defects on the tires. Bulges and cracked sidewalls would indicate something seriously wrong.
