5 Signs That You’re Due for a Tire Change


Your Rolls-Royce delivers a supremely comfortable ride, but even the most luxurious and dependable vehicles will eventually require tire replacement. After all, no amount of brilliant mechanical engineering can make up for the impact that these deceptively simple components can have on your daily drives and adventures. Here, we’ve identified the most common signs that it’s time to secure replacement tires–so you can focus on what really matters.

  1. Your Tread Depth is Low–or Non-Existent

The most common sign of how often to change tires is the same on Rolls-Royce vehicles as it is nearly everywhere else. When your tires are new, they should have a tread-depth of roughly 10/32” or 12/32”–roughly ⅓ of an inch. If your tires are due for replacement, they’ll have a depth of 2/32” or less. Find out how to check tire tread depth at home, or schedule service if you’d like an expert to take a look. Want to ensure that your tires wear down at an even rate? If you drive often enough, regular tire rotation is essential.

  1. Your Vehicle Shakes While Braking or Driving

You may regularly notice a slight vibration in your Rolls-Royce, especially if you’re moving over rougher roads. However, since your model has been designed to provide an exceptionally smooth and satisfying touring experience, any significant vehicle trembling should give you cause for concern. Although shaking while braking is more common, a vehicle that shakes while accelerating or coasting is in even more urgent need of tire replacement.

  1. Your Tires Don’t Maintain Their Air Pressure

If you find that your tires just don’t hold their air pressure like they used to, it’s probably because they’ve been worn down. Although it’s always a good idea to check your tire pressure at least once a month, and more often when you’re dealing with the San Antonio area’s weather extremes, massive fluctuations and rapid air loss are both signs of trouble.

  1. Your Tire Walls Are Cracked or Wearing Thin

Driving isn’t the only factor that wears down your tires. Other elements, including acid rain and ultraviolet light from the sun’s rays, can cause your tire walls to wear down even more quickly than your treads. Cracks in the side of your tires are the most important sign to look out for, especially if you don’t drive your Rolls Royce very often. Parking your vehicle inside is one simple, if unintuitive, way to maximize your tire life.

  1. You Notice Bubbles or Blistering

The appearance of bubbles or blisters on your tire wall indicates some sort of severe damage to your tire lining. This sort of event is unlikely to be the result of normal wear and tear. It’s more likely that some sort of impact has caused a rupture, and since blistering signals the potential for a dangerous blow-out, you’ll want to secure replacement tires right away.
