Most drivers do not spend much time thinking about their tires. Some drivers check oil levels, and maybe even the coolant levels. Some will inspect the wiper blades and squeegee the windshield, if they have a little extra time at the gas station, but the majority of drivers forget to check the condition of their tires, and that is a huge mistake. The tires on your vehicle are the only contact you have with the road, which means a worn-out tire can significantly increase the risk of accidents and road-side problems. Fortunately, there are some simple signs you can look for that will indicate you need Nissan Tire Replacement near Seattle.
First, do the penny check: insert a Lincoln-head penny into the tread of your tire, head-first, and if you still see the top of the head that means the tread is insufficient and you need a replacement. If the tire is worn-out, you may see a tread wear indicator bar positioned perpendicular to the tread direction. You can perform a visual inspection of the sidewalls, checking for cracks, bulges, and foreign objects.
