Common Tire Repairs and Replacements
Tread Wear: The tread provides the grip that your tires use to keep your heavy-duty truck on the road, especially when it is raining. Without tread, slippage may occur on rough dirt paths. When you see the tread wearing out unevenly, or if it is worn down to 2/32 of an inch, you should call a mechanic for a tire replacement. Leaving it alone will only cause a danger to yourself and others on the road.
Tire Puncture: Sure, a small puncture can often be repaired, but let’s face it—sometimes a tire puncture is a death sentence for your tire. Leaving punctured items in tires, like nails, may cause a tire blowout. If the hole is on the tire’s sidewall or more significant than a quarter-inch, consider it an urgent invite to replace it.
Misaligned Tires: Toe angles refer to the angle at which your tires point when viewed from above. Incorrect toe angles can lead to, you guessed it, uneven tread wear. And when that happens, you do not just burn rubber but also revenue.
How Alignment Plays into the Lifespan of Tires
Good alignment can be the difference between a tire that lives a full, prosperous life and one that meets an early end. Ensuring the toe angles are spot-on can drastically reduce tread wear, giving you more bang for your buck.
