4 Common Types of Tire Wear

imusm-p1aTriangle motorists can tell a lot about their vehicles by the tires they ride on; they are a crucial part of your vehicle and are often ignored by many owners.  Tires are not limited to just rolling around Apex and vicinity. They support the car, control the vehicle’s direction, cushion the passengers from the road feel, as move and stop the car.

Take a moment and look at the rubber on your tires. Are they wearing evenly? Have you rotated them lately? Your vehicles tires will wear down no matter what, but if you keep them maintained by rotating them at Premier One Automotive they will not only last longer but will also save you money at the pump.

There are four common types of tire wear:

Toe wear: This is when tires wear on the inner or outer edge of the tire surface and it is potentially caused by a camber wear.

Center Wear: This is a common problem, and can be easily fixed. When center wear in a tire occurs, the middle will wear more quickly than the outer edges. The cause is  too much air, and is easily corrected.

Outer Edge Wear: Outer edge wear can simply mean the tires need air. Add the needed PSI following the manufacturer’s pressure recommendation on the tire.

Cupping Wear: This situation will often happen when too many miles accumulate between rotations; it is also caused by bent or worn suspension. Our technicians will assess the tires and related parts at no charge.

Passenger and truck tires do not have electronic warnings telling you to get them changed or rotated. It is important to check them on a regular basis or bring them into Premier One Automotive. Remember we will check your issues and concerns for free and we will only work on a vehicle with written consent. If it is time to rotate the tires, or you want to double-check the vehicle before a trip, then bring them on in.

If you own an Audi, BMW, Volvo, Acura, Lexus, Infiniti, Porsche, or Jaguar; we are the only automotive service center you will ever need.  Of course, we work on any domestic and import and are certified to do every major and minor repair.
