How To Tell When You Need New Tires

What is the most important safety feature on your Cadillac? While your first instinct might be to say something like your brakes, rearview camera, or even automatic emergency braking, the answer is your tires. Your tires are the only things that keep you in contact with the road. If even one of your tires fail, you are going to have a hard time stopping and staying in control, which is why it is so important to know when it is time to get new tires for your Cadillac.

Check the Tread

The grooves in your tires are called the tread. The tread pattern helps give you traction by cutting through anything on the road and keeping your car steady. Over time, the rubber will wear down and the tread will not be as effective. Your tread should be more than 2/32 of an inch deep. To measure the tread, take a penny and put it in between the grooves with Lincoln’s head pointing down. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, your tread is too shallow, and you need new tires. Do this in multiple places on all four tires.

Tire Age

Regardless of the tread depth, the rubber that makes up your tires will eventually break down. Most tire manufacturers recommend that you replace your tires every ten years.
