You should not, however, continue to drive on tires that have been punctured, patched or have very little tread left. You should consider tire replacement instead.
  • You should have your tires examined once a year by a professional. Even if you think you have a good idea as to how much use you still have left on your tires, it’s best to get an expert’s opinion. They’ll talk to you about tire replacement if they see a problem that needs to be addressed.
