Car tire tread wear – How much is too much wear?

It is important not to drive on tires with too much tread wear as this reduces the traction you have on the road making it easier to slip, hydroplane and even pick up a punture. Here are the minimum depths you need to stay safe:

6/32″ – tread depth is ok

5/32″ – start thinking of repalcement – you could have trouble in wet weather

4/32″ – replace your tires as soon as possible

The best and most accurate way to measure your tread is with a proper gauge. They are easy to use and you can find them at most gas stations or hardware stores. Find the shallowest groove on your tire and insert the pin on the gauge. read the scale and compare the results with the numbers above.

Determining What Size Tires, You Need

The correct tire for your vehicle will be a unique combination of different variables including the width, height, and diameter of the tire, as well as a combination the tire’s load capacity rating and speed ability. To find out what size tires you need and what speed/load rating your vehicle requires, check your owner’s manual. If the information is not listed there, it can usually be found inside the door jamb of the driver’s door, inside the glove box door, or inside the fuel tank hatch.

Determining What Size Tires, You Need

If you cannot find the information in any of these locations, read the information off of the sidewall on your existing tires. Here is an example of the types of numbers you want to look for:

What Do the Numbers on The Sidewall Actually Mean?

You can write all these numbers down and then bring them to Canadian Auto Service Repairs and Tire Shop to see what tires are available in this size. That is all the information you will need to find tires that will fit your car as the manufacturer intended.

What Do the Numbers on The Sidewall Actually Mean?

Aspect ratio: The aspect ratio is essentially a measure of how tall your tire is. The larger the number, the taller the tire. The number is calculated by dividing the height of the tire by its width, then turning the result into a percentage. Your typical all-season passenger car tire will have an aspect ratio somewhere between 65 and 80.

tire Load index

Load index: Your tire’s load index lets you know how much weight the tire was designed to carry safely. By using the load index chart displayed below, you can match the rating up with the number of pounds the tire can support when it is inflated to its maximum air pressure. For example, if your load rating is 81, you can then determine that the tire was engineered to carry 1,019 pounds when fully inflated. Multiply this weight by four to find out the maximum carrying capacity for your vehicle. When buying aftermarket or replacement tires, it is important to find a model that matches the load index that was on the original equipment.

Speed rating: The speed rating is a number issued by the U.S. government which signifies how well a tire can reach and maintain a certain speed. Speed ratings are simply lettering which correspond to a specific top speed. Keep in mind that these are not recommended speeds to drive at, but simply a way to get a better idea of how well the tire will handle (tires with a hire speed rating are likely to provide better traction and handling). When buying new tires, always choose 4 tires with identical speed ratings. Mixing up the specifications on your tires will result in serious and unsafe driving conditions. It is also not recommended that you downgrade the speed rating on your tires. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and buy tires with ratings that are identical to the original stock equipment.

Tire Speed rating

Once you have all the information from your tire sidewall or vehicle placard, you can now narrow down your search for new tires. Other variables like tread wear, traction, and temperature grades may affect the type of tires you need, but for everyday purposes the size, speed, and load numbers are all you will need. Contact Canadian Auto Service Repairs and Tire Shop for more information about the different types of tires. We will assist you in finding the tires you want at the sizes you need.
