Physical damages

Physical damage to tires can include scratches, punctures, their grip being worn away, flat underinflated tires, and so on. There are various causes of physical damages to tires. Some of the main causes of tire damage include pot holes, glass, wet conditions, ice, chemicals, poorly maintained roads, and more.

Low air pressure

Under-inflated tires with consistently low air pressure should be replaced as soon as possible. Of course, you can pump up a tire with low pressure, however, it is more tricky with an older tire given all the wear and tear it has endured over the years. There comes a point when a tire constantly has low pressure and must be replaced.

The car begins to have difficulties braking and steering safely

Another sign that a car tire is not performing as it should is difficulties with the car's braking and steering. Damaged tires tend to be much more difficult to control when you are driving, this is particularly dangerous in rain and snow and any other extreme weather conditions.
