Car Maintenance and Repair Tips : When New Tires Are Needed


Hi! I’m William Myers from Austin Subaru
for Expert Village. Okay more about tires, now remember when I was showing you this tire
and right there I can see the top of Lincoln’s head but right there is a wear bar indicator
and if I put it off that wear bar indicator I can see not the top of his head anymore,
so there is life left in these tires but there’s a wear bar here and we want to talk about
wear bars. As you saw before when I put the penny in there you can almost see the top
of Abraham Lincoln’s head so you know this tire is not wore out yet but its got some
life in it and it’s going to have to be replaced soon. Now I’ve got a tire right
here that I can show you it’s a bit different and it can show the wear bars on the tire
and all tires have wear bars and a wear bar is when it starts to show you know the tires
were out. But here let me show you with a penny on this tire…see how you can see all
of Abraham Lincoln’s head but if you look real close on a tire and the tread groves
you’ll see these little rubber bars when they show that means your tires wore out.
A wear bar’s there so you can actually see its level with a tread it’s time to replace
your tires, I mean a wear bar is always there but the treads are high enough that they’re
not leveled with the tread once they become leveled with the tread it’s time to replace
the tire, that’s all a wear bar is there for is when that wear bar shows it’s telling
you, you need to replace your tire.
