At Mike Brailey’s Auto, we take our commitment to providing top-notch NH auto repair seriously. There are a lot of services that are essential to keeping your car in good shape. What’s more, many parts of your car affect each other, so if you notice one issue, it can let you know about other related problems. Your tires, in particular, can tell you that your car needs maintenance depending on how the tread wears.
Here are 3 common NH auto repair issues that your tires can warn you about.
Your suspension keeps your car even and your ride smooth as you drive. If parts of your suspension are worn, or something is off, you’ll see it in your tires. The wear that a worn suspension causes to your tires is called cupping. It looks like there are dips in your tire tread. When you can see this kind of wear, it’s a good indicator that your suspension needs repairs, especially if you’ve also noticed that you’re hitting bumps extra hard.
When your car is aligned properly, it doesn’t pull to one side or the other because the weight is even over the wheels. When your car is out of alignment, the wheels lean too far to one side or the other. If you see that your tires are more worn on one side than the other, that probably means you need an alignment. Continuing to drive when your car is out of alignment can also lead to issues with your suspension and steering in the future.
Over or Underinflated Tires
Sometimes, an issue with your tires is just an issue with your tires. Wear on the edges or in the center of your tires is usually a sign that your tire pressure is off. If your tires are overinflated, the center of your tires will wear first because they are making more contact with the road. On the other hand, if they are underinflated, the edges of your tires will wear first because that is the area making more contact with the road.
