4 Common Signs of Tires Wearing Unevenly

Don’t Let This Condition Worsen and Threaten Your Safety!

Your tires are among the most important safety features of your car along with your brake and suspension systems. Vehicles with worn and uneven tires can lose traction on the road and cause major accidents. Damages to tires such as cracks and bulges can result in catastrophic blowouts. Not to mention, they can lead to expensive repairs if you’re unable to address the issue ASAP.

The last thing any driver wants is getting stranded on the road due to uneven tire wear, or worse, getting into an accident because of it. Fortunately, several signs will alert you that your tires are wearing unevenly before this condition worsens and threatens your safety.

Kids Car Donations takes a close look at these warning signs:

  1. Your vehicle pulls to one side while driving.

If you notice your car pulling to one side while you’re driving, it’s a good indication that your tires are wearing unevenly. This can be caused by an incorrect wheel alignment or an issue with your suspension.

  1. Your steering wheel is off-center when driving straight.

Another way to tell that your tires are wearing unevenly is when your steering wheel is off-center when you’re driving straight. This usually indicates that your front tires are wearing more on one side than the other.

  1. You have excessive tire noise.

Your tires may produce unusual noise when they have uneven wear. Unbalanced tread depths are the likeliest culprit for loud noise while driving. Typically, you’ll hear this noise coming from one tire.

  1. Your car shakes.

The vibrations that you feel while you’re driving can also be a sign that there’s an issue with your tires. You’re either dealing with tires that are out of balance or defective, or perhaps you have a worn driveline U-joint. You may find your car shaking in an up-and-down motion. You may feel the vibrations in your seat, steering wheel, and brake pedal.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s crucial to have your tires checked by a professional mechanic as soon as you can. Be mindful that uneven tire wear can lead to decreased fuel efficiency, shorter tire life, and reduced handling and braking ability. It can pose a danger to you, your passengers, pedestrians, and other motorists if left unchecked.

Proper tire maintenance plays a key role in preventing uneven tire wear. Make sure that you keep them properly inflated and inspect them regularly to ensure that they have the right level of useable tread. A little basic maintenance for your tires can go a long way in extending their life span.
