What Needs to be Checked During a Tire Inspection?

Our professionals check out various issues during a tire inspection. They include:

  • Measuring Tread Depth

Tread depth is the vertical measurement from the bottom of the deepest groove to the top of the tread. It is usually given in 32nds of an inch. Tread depth is 11/32 or 10/32 for brand new tires. You should get new tires if our expert determines that your tread depth is 2/32 or 3/32. However, tread-wear indicators on modern cars alert you when to change your tires.

  • Checking/Adjustment of Pressure

Our professional in-house technicians will check the tire's air pressure during the inspection to see if it is low or exceeds the limit. You can also determine the amount of pressure in your tire using the tire pressure monitoring system.

  • Tire Rotation

Even tire wear is guaranteed with tire rotation, which involves switching the position of your vehicle's wheels. There are several approaches, such as a backward cross, forward cross, and x-pattern. In addition to the kind of tire you have, tire rotation also depends on your vehicle's drivetrain. Non-directional and uniform tires are used in addition to directional and high-performance tires. Every set of tires mentioned above rotates distinctly. Rotating your tires is good practice to lengthen their lifespan.

How Frequently Should I Have my Tires Inspected?

It would be best if you got your tires inspected every 5,000 to 10,000 kilometres. However, it is vital to check your tire pressure at least once a month to ensure that they are adequately inflated. Visit our Nissan Tire Centre for more information on tire inspections.

Does My Car Need New Tires?

You should contact our service centre and book a service appointment if your tires are bulging or if the tread-wear indicator shows your tire has 3/32 tread depth.
