What is Tire Dry Rot?

The main way we judge what kind of shape tires are in is to look at the tread wear. This is usually the best indication of whether or not a tire is in good shape to perform reliably and safely. There is another problem tires can have that does not necessarily show in the tread - it is called tire dry rot. This problem occurs as a result of vehicle inactivity, low tire pressure, or extreme heat.

Old Tires Can Be Dangerous

Most everyone understands that driving on compromised tires is dangerous. It is important to inspect tires and measure tread depth on a regular basis to assure that tires are safe. There is another tire problem, though, that many drivers may not even realize is a safety issue. Old tires can be dangerous, even if the tread appears to be okay.  Let Phoenix Avenue Tire in Fort Smith, AR solve all  your old tire issues!
