What Are Some Common Causes of Tire Damage?

Answers to your service questions

If you drive a Subaru, you likely enjoy the famed traction of the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System. This means paying careful attention to tire damage. One of the more common causes of damaged tires we see in our service center at Carter Subaru Ballard is uneven tread wear from driving on tires that are misaligned. We also see cases of tires that have been bumped against a curb. Of course, there's also the familiar punctured tire from a rogue screw, nail, or other object that found its way onto the road.

What Should You Know About Damaged Tires on Your Subaru?

Perhaps most importantly, you should never drive on a flat tire. This is not only likely to ruin a tire that could otherwise be repaired, but it can also take a toll on the drivetrain. This is especially true for the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System. What's more, tire damage from wheels that are not properly aligned is easily preventable by getting your Subaru wheel alignment checked once a year, or anytime it seems like your Subaru isn't tracking straight. The tires are quite literally where the rubber meets the road, so don't take chances. If you're unsure about the integrity of a tire or the wheel alignment, come see us right away. Also, remember to always keep your tires properly inflated.
