DO YOU NEED NEW TIRES?
You need to be aware of a couple things when deciding if you need new tires: tread wear, exposure to the elements and tire age.
With this easy test, a penny can buy you peace of mind when it comes to your tires and safety. Place a penny head first into several tread grooves across the tire. If you always see the top of Lincoln's head, your treads are shallow and worn. If this is the case, your tires need to be replaced. If part of Lincoln's head is always covered by the tread, you have more than 2/32 of an inch of tread depth remaining. This means you probably don't need new tires.
How old are your tires? Regardless of tread wear, vehicle manufacturers generally recommend you replace your tires at 10 years. Check the manufacturer's recommendations on your specific tires.

TIME FOR BRAKE SERVICE?
There are several warning signs that your vehicle can give you before your brakes may reach the point of potential failure of extensive repair. Simply using your sense of hearing, sight and touch may alert you to a potential problem. Here are some of the common questions you should ask yourself concerning your vehicle's brake system:
• Does your brake warning light come on when you are driving
• Is your brake fluid low? Does it appear very dirty?
• Do you hear a grinding sound or a squealing sound when you apply the brake pedal?
• Do you feel a pulsation or some sponginess in the brake pedal when it is depressed?
• Does your vehicle steer or pull to on side when braking?
These are the most common signs that can suggest a potential brake system problem that should be addressed. Any other sights, sounds or sensations in the brake system that seem out of the ordinary should also be taken into consideration. Most times, brake system problems will only escalate if disregarded.
