Get answers about tire damage for your Subaru

Damaged tires can prove costly and even dangerous, but there are things you can do that reduce the risk of something going wrong with your tires. Every light motor vehicle made since 2008 is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system that will alert you to a sudden drop of tire pressure or a slow leak. Make sure this system is working the way it's supposed to. Also keep an eye on how the tread on your tires is wearing. This will warn you of another issue that commonly destroys good tires.

What Does it Mean When Your Tires are Wearing Unevenly?

One of the most common causes of uneven tire wear is an issue with the wheel alignment. Typically, this will show up as one side of the tire being worn much faster than the other. We recommend that you have your vehicle alignment checked once a year to catch the issue before it damages the tires to the point that they need replacement. Driving with too much or too little air in your tires can also cause uneven wear.

It's also important to know what to do if you're on the road and notice a damaged tire. If you do find yourself with a flat tire, do not drive on it any further than what's necessary to get the vehicle to a safe place off the road. Often, tire damage like punctures and more can be repaired for much less than the price of replacement tires.

Do You Have to Replace Every Tire on an All-Wheel Drive Vehicle?

Generally, it is important that every tire on all-wheel drive vehicles like Subaru models be replaced at the same time. This is because the advanced system that sends power to every wheel is engineered to operate wheels that are exactly the same diameter. Even having a new tire among three others that are half way through their tread life can put the drive system under additional strain that increases the likelihood of costly damage.
