Your tires should be replaced if you have tire tread that is worn below the recommended depth levels. All tires are completely unsafe if there is 1/16th of an inch of tread or less. Most people like to be sure that they replace their tires even sooner, especially during the winter or rainy months where the roads can be slick. Tires should be inspected on a regular basis to look for things like: 

  • Uneven wear of the tread
  • Tread that is too shallow
  • Foreign objects like nails or rocks
  • Damage to the valve cap or areas with bulging, cracks or warping 

When you are driving, you should also pay attention to the feeling that you get on the roads. If you have a rough ride, it could mean that there is excessive wear, damage, or uneven tread wear. Our trained MINI service technicians at MINI of Glencoe can inspect your tires and make sure that you have the services you need to get back on the roads.
