Anyone who has ever purchased new tires understands that those tires cost a small truckload of money. However, no amount of money can create safety while you are driving down the road. It is important to make your tires last as long as they can to get your money's worth and still be safe. So, what do you do to make the most of it and make these wheels last regardless of whether it's the summer of the fall season? Simple, you do a visual tire inspection.

By following our instructions you will know once and for all if you need new tires or if you can continue to cruise on the wheels you currently have. Knowing when to get new treads is half the battle and it is very important because it can add years to the life of your vehicle and keep you and your riders safe.

One thing you will want to note is the size of your wheels. It is printed on the rubber, just look for it. It might look like P225/45R17 or something like that. Knowing that information is a good start. Now, let's determine if you need new wheels or are good to go with your old ones.
