Top 10 Signs That You Need New Tires

It may be time for new replacement tires if you have driven 25,000 to 50,000 miles or if you notice any of the following signs:

  • The tire tread depth has worn down to less than 2/32" using the “penny test” or tire tread gauge
  • Bulges, blisters or bubbles
  • Cracking in the tread grooves
  • Punctures, cuts, snags or separation in tire tread, shoulder or sidewall
  • Sudden loss of tire pressure
  • Poor handling or traction on slippery surfaces
  • Pulling to one side while driving
  • Sudden vibration while driving
  • Tires that have been driven flat, without proper tire pressure
  • Even without mileage or wear, it is recommended that tires be replaced every six years

How Often Should I Change My Tires?

Tires today generally have an average useful life of 25,000 to 50,000 miles before they need to be replaced or you can also refer to your owner manual. But how often you need to replace your tires depends not only on the type of tires but also on how you drive. Fast cornering, heavy braking and high mileage wear down tires faster. Weather conditions and rough terrain can also have an impact. Learn how to check your tire tread or stop by a Ford Dealer and let our expert techs check to see if it’s time to buy new tires.

Wheel Alignments

What is a Wheel Alignment?

Proper wheel alignment, also called tire alignment, is an adjustment of a vehicle’s suspension system, which connects a vehicle to its wheels. Proper wheel alignment makes sure that the angle of the tires is properly aligned with the road. Proper wheel alignment helps ensure your vehicle's steering is responsive, aids in fuel efficiency and improves tire wear and performance.

Do I Need a Wheel Alignment?

If you are experiencing uneven tread wear, vehicle pulling to the left or right, your steering wheel is off center when driving straight or if you feel steering vibration, you may need a wheel alignment.

How Often Should I Check the Wheel Alignment in my Vehicle?

Wheel alignment should be checked annually during an oil change or whenever you feel it pulling slightly to one side while driving, or when you buy new tires. Learn all about wheel alignments or visit your Ford Dealers with factory-trained experts who can expertly diagnose and fix your wheel alignment problems.

Tire Rotations

How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?

Tires should be rotated every 6,000-8,000 miles or as recommended in your owner's manual.

Why are Tire Rotations Important?

It is important to rotate your tires so that they wear evenly. Front tires can wear faster than back tires due to weight differences and the way you drive. Tire rotations help ensure that your tires wear evenly, extending their life and the time between new tire purchases. In addition, it can maintain your vehicle’s handling and traction capabilities, especially in inclement weather. Schedule tire rotation service using the FordPass™ App.*

Need help? Your Ford Dealers and factory-trained technicians can expertly rotate your tires and help offer their packages to combine a tire rotation with an oil change or other tire service.

Tire Pressure

Proper tire pressure is critical for even tread wear, to maximize fuel economy and to optimize your vehicle’s performance and handling. Low tire pressure can cause unnecessary wear on your tires and may be an indicator that you need new tires. Find your vehicle's tire information, including tire pressure, on a placard located in your driver’s side doorjamb.

How to Check Tire Pressure?

You can check your tire pressure easily with a digital or standard manual stick-type tire pressure gauge. Simply remove the tire valve cap off the tire. Then, place the tire gauge on top of the tire valve stem, pressing down until you no longer hear the sound of air hissing out of the tire. This indicates the tire gauge tool is engaged. A digital tire gauge will provide the air pressure on the screen and a standard tire gauge will indicate the tire pressure in units that are etched on a bar that pushes out from the bottom of the gauge. If your vehicle is equipped with FordPass™ Connect,* you can also check your tire pressure using the FordPass App.*

How Often Should I Check My Tire Pressure?

You should check your tire pressure every month, especially as temperature changes. Tires should be inflated to the PSI (pressure per square inch) rating listed in the driver side door frame. Ideally, you should check your tires when the tires are cold, meaning when your vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours as warm tires can have extra pressure.

You should check your tires if the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) light comes on, you hit a pothole, notice increased vibration or reduced traction, braking or handling. A sudden loss in tire pressure could indicate that you need new tires or that you may need tire service.

Need help? Your Ford Dealers and factory trained technicians are also ready to help check and diagnose tire pressure issues.

What is the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)?

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System in your Ford vehicle can alert you if your tire pressure is low or underinflated. There are sensors in each valve stem in each tire that can tell if your tires have low tire pressure.

Why is my TPMS Light or my Tire Pressure Sensor Light On or Blinking?

Your TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) light warns you if your tire pressure is too low, which could indicate that you need to inflate your tires, or that you need tire service or new tires. If your tire pressure sensor light is blinking or flashing, you also could need a TPMS reset or a replacement. Our techs can check your tire pressure, identify if there is a fault in your TPMS system and quickly take care of any needed repairs.

Tread Wear

Why Does Tread Wear Matter?

Heavily worn tire treads will prevent a tire from performing as designed and can lead to unsafe driving conditions. Your tires can lose traction and may not grip the road as well in snowy, slushy or rainy conditions. Good treads can help channel water to prevent hydroplaning.

How to Check Tread Wear with the Penny Test, a Tire Tread Depth Indicator or a Tire Gauge?

In general, new tires typically come with 10/32” or 11/32” tread depths, but it does depend on the tire brand. In addition, some truck, SUV and winter tires meant for snowy conditions may have deeper tread depths than other models. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) recommends replacing tires when they reach 2/32”. But if you want higher performance or more traction in snowy or rainy conditions, consult with your Ford Dealer about replacing at 4/32” or earlier. It is a good idea to check tread wear once a month, at the same time you check your tire pressure.

How to do the Penny Test

You can perform the penny test by inserting a penny with Abraham Lincoln’s head upside down and into the treads of a tire in several places. If all of Lincoln’s head is visible above the tread, your tire has only 2/32” or less tread depth left and it is time for you to replace your tires.

How to Use a Tire Tread Depth Indicator

U.S. Federal safety standards require that tire tread patterns include 2/32" tread wear indicators across their tread, in the grooves. Tires are considered to be worn out when the tread pattern has worn even with the indicator bars.

How to Use a Tire Tread Depth Gauge?

Simply insert the gauge into tire tread grooves, and the tire will be considered worn when the tread pattern has worn even with the indicator bars.
