When it’s time for new Bixby tires, see the Bixby tire specialists at Same Day.
You try to be a safe driver and a responsible car owner. That’s why you look over your tires at least once a month to make sure they don’t need repair or replacement. It doesn’t really take long – you looked at them the other day before heading to the Botanic Garden to see the spring tulips. You were happy to note that your Bixby tires still have enough tread to keep going for awhile.
It is very good that you regularly check your tires. And, certainly, lack of tread is a major reason to get new tires. But, did you know, your tires could have plenty of tread and still be at risk of failure?
That’s right. Dry rot could wear out your tires long before you could tell that they are worn.
CNET.com explains: “Tire rot is caused by ambient heat, UV radiation (which has a similar effect on your face), ozone in the atmosphere, road salt and time. These factors are mostly worse if your car lives outside, but even garage queens can't sit on one set of tires forever.
“Six to 10 years is about all a tire is good for, regardless of miles. Inspect the sidewalls for tiny cracks on the surface of the rubber. It will look like cracks in the glaze of a piece of pottery. Then inspect the face of the tire and look for cracks around the tread blocks. What you can't see is hardened rubber compound that is less grippy and potentially worse at shedding water to avoid hydroplaning.”
How do you know if your tire is dry rotted or at risk of dry rot?
Well, the easiest way is to take your car to a Bixby tire technician like those at Same Day Auto Repair and have them take a look. Another way is to look at the date the tires were made. If they’re more than six years old, you should get them checked and think about replacing them even if they look okay.
CNET says, “Tires have a date of manufacture molded into the sidewall, usually in the format ‘XXXX.’ The first two digits are the week the tire was made and the second two are the year, since 2000. If your tires have a three-digit code, like ‘XXX,’ it's time for new tires: Yours were made in the last century.
“Tire date codes can be tricky to spot as they're sometimes part of a longer string of characters, but the code will always be numbers only and should always be the last four characters in a string.”
But your safest bet is to ask the Bixby tire pros at Same Day.
