Those unsightly bulges on the sides of your tires are a warning sign that your tires need replacing.
You're looking forward to the Blues Festival tonight, but you're wondering if you need to do a bit of auto care before you head out. You noticed last night that one of your tires has a kind of bulge, or blister, on the side and you're not sure if it's anything to worry about.
Well, yes, it is.
As Consumer Reports points out, a bulge or blister on the sidewall is a sign you need to "replace the tire at once. These signal potential weak spots that could lead to tire failure." Other early warning signals that your tires could need replacing: cracking or cuts in the sidewalls, uneven tread wear, excessively worn tread, or excessive vibration.
Sounds as if you need to drop by Twin Tire and Auto Care to let our certified auto care technicians take a look at your tires. Even if you don't have any of those warning signals, it's a good idea to get your tires regularly checked as a part of good auto care. After all, your tires are the one part of your car that are in contact with the road.
