Default Re: How far do you let your tires run down..

This will be interesting as I honestly dont understand the system of tire wear or how to tell when the tires need replacement. I do rotate religiously every 6,000 miles and recently switched the motor to synthetic oil so oil changes and tire rotations can be synced. What do you mean by when the cords show???

I usually would probably have mine inspected by a mechanic after I put a considerable amount of miles on the car. For instance, my dad got 72,000 out of our Santa Fe's tires by rotating them every 6,000 miles and even then there was still decent tread on em.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
