The Many Different Ways Tires Can Say ‘I’m Tired’

Tires and wheels make sure that you get to wherever you have to go no matter the weather. Yet, all this exposure to the elements can leave them with problems that can affect your car’s smooth drive. Even tires have ways of telling people that they’re, no pun intended, “tired.”

In some cases, wear patterns on tires can be caused by factors such as too much air or the axle not being aligned. Poor care for the tires can hasten the wear and tear process, which would prove to be costly because the tires would then require constant replacement. Below are some common tire wear patterns and the problems associated with them.

Outside edges worn: Tires that have worn-out outer edges are signs that the tires were operating on too little air. As a result, the outer edges make contact with the road most of the time, resulting in the wear pattern. In addition, the stress and weight applied on underinflated tires could make the car eat more fuel than normal.

Center of tire worn: When the center of the tire is worn, it means that there is too much air in the tire. In this case, the center makes contact with the road the most, causing it to wear out fast. Overinflated tires can also have dire consequences such as bursting in the middle of the road.

Feathered wear: Feathering happens when one edge of the tire is rounded while the other is at a sharp angle. A typical reason for this is that the tie rod ends, the part of the steering system that carries tensile loads, are worn out. As a result, one edge of the tire takes in more weight than the other. Feathered San Diego tires can be corrected with a simple adjustment courtesy of a mechanic.

Camber wear: A camber wear in a tire looks like the tire itself no longer has its rounded edge. A reason for camber wear can be the fact that your San Diego wheels are not aligned properly. A proper alignment can help your tire last for a longer period, as it absorbs less stress.

You can get more information on different tire wear patterns by visiting the resource website at AA1Car.com. Know what a worn-out tire looks like and bring the problem to a service center of wheels in San Diego. Give your tires some credit—it takes unbelievable strength and endurance to do what they do.
