Port Moody Tire Sales: 3 Ways to Tell if Your Vehicle Requires New M+S Tires

Unsure if your vehicle requires new M+S tires? Our Port Moody Tire Sales and Service can help you with that. In addition, we wanted to provide these 3 ways to detect if your tires are ready to be switched out.

3 Ways to Tell if Your Vehicle Requires New M+S Tires

M+S tires – also known as mud and snow tires, help drivers ensure they have the appropriate traction in weather conditions such as mud, snow, slush –  and other such seasonal weather patterns.

Unsure if your vehicle requires new M+S tires? Here are 3 telltale signs:

  1. Tread Depth

Regardless of what season of tires you have, your tread depth indicates whether or not you require new tires. The tread is the part of the tire that comes into contact with the road, providing grip and traction. Over time, the tread wears down, reducing the tire’s ability to handle adverse conditions, making it highly important to invest in new tires.

  • Uneven Wear

Uneven wear can happen when you have suspension problems, your tires are imbalanced, or they haven’t been rotated at the proper intervals. This can affect your tires performance as well as their lifespan. If you notice uneven wear, we can inspect your vehicle’s tires and suspension system, and replace the tires if necessary.

  • Tire Age

As with anything, tires wear down with age. Even if they have sufficient tread depth and show no visible signs of wear, they may still need replacement if they are too old. Tires deteriorate over time, leading to reduced performance and safety. Usually the lifespan of a tire is 6-years.

Maintaining properly functioning M+S tires is crucial for safety, especially in challenging weather conditions – such as mountain passes in BC. If you’re unsure about the condition of your tires, bring your vehicle into our GRiP Tire & Auto Centre in Port Moody for a quick inspection.
