Tires

At Holiday Auto Care, we know tires and can help you with ANY TIRE for ANY CAR or LIGHT TRUCK. And if you need tires, WE HAVE TIRES FOR VIRTUALLY ANY BUDGET, from entry level all-seasons to top-of-the-line Michelins. That’s our promise!

It’s important to maintain your tires at all times according to the manufacturer’s recommendations (see your vehicle’s owner’s manual for correct tire sizes and pressures for your car; psi=pounds per square inch).

Check the tire tread and the air in your tires every month or as needed if they appear abnormally worn or lower than normal on air. Determine if your tires are safe to drive on, in need of service, or need to be replaced.

Tires can get damaged and all tires will eventually wear down or wear out completely.

Here are some ways to tell if you need new tires.

If Your Tire Is Damaged

There is a good chance that your tire can be repaired if:

  • The tire has not been driven on when flat
  • The damage is only on the tread section of your tire
  • The puncture is less than ¼”

If Your Tire Is Worn

It’s a good idea to check your tires once a month for visible damage and excess wear.

Here are two ways to tell if your tires are worn out:

Look for wear bars

Narrow bands may appear in the grooves across the tire’s tread. See the wear bars? When the wear bars are even with the tread depth, only 2/32” of tread remains, replace the tire.

The penny trick

Place a penny in the most shallow tread groove with Lincoln’s head down. See the top of his head? The tire should be replaced.
