Is It Time for Replacement?
Most street-legal, general-use tires are quite durable. Even though they are, they can't last forever. If they're worn beyond safe use (minimum 2/32 inch tread depth), it's time to replace your tires. Similarly, certain damage can be repaired (i.e., a small puncture in the tread pattern that isn't more than 1/4 inch). Large inclusions, a cut, or damage to the sidewall is unsafe to repair. You should opt for a replacement instead. Also, repairing is not feasible if the injured tire has been run flat or is otherwise in a compromised condition. Sometimes you may choose a replacement for cosmetic or functional reasons. If you're working on a life package or desire a special use tire such as an off-road or mud model, you may desire tire replacement.
