How to Tell a Tire Has Been Damaged

It may be possible to determine if a tire needs to be replaced just by looking at it. If there is no tread left, it is definitely time to put a new tire or tires on your vehicle. Even if there is tread left, scratches or cuts to the tire wall may indicate that it is unsafe to keep driving on.

However, it may be possible to have a cut or scratch looked at to find out if it can be repaired. In some cases, simply sealing the damage will enable you to drive safely for thousands of miles.

Tires may also need to be replaced if they show signs of uneven wear. A worn tire wall may endure more friction and increase the odds of a blowout. If you are need of new tires, come to our service center at LCM Used Car Center in Petersburg, PA today to get the service you need.
