4 Signs That You Need to Change Your Wheels ASAP

Red Oldtimer Mercedes | Veteran Car DonationsChecking your car’s tires should be an important part of your routine car maintenance. Your tires are your vehicle’s connection to the road and take the brunt of your car’s weight.

When your tires deteriorate, it can cause blowouts, flats, and other more serious problems that could threaten your safety and your wallet.

Tires don’t come cheap, so you might be tempted to leave them be until they are well worn out to save a couple of bucks. However, this could come at a risk. To avoid road mishaps, do the following 4 steps in checking your car’s tires. Replace them quickly once you find clear signs of tire damage.

  1. Check your tire tread.

This first sign is quite simple. Just look at the wear indicators of your tires to see if they’re still roadworthy. Wear indicators can be found on the grooves of the tire. Once the tread depth reaches the wear indicator point, it means that the tire needs to be replaced immediately.

  1. Check your tire production year.

You can check the sidewall of your tire to find its production year. Under normal usage, tires can last for three to six years.

  1. Check for tire damages.

If your tires show cracks, bulges, or uneven wear, these could be more serious than you think. These could indicate that there’s something wrong with your wheel alignment, among other things. Have your tires replaced immediately and have your car checked for any other possible problems.

  1. Check for irregular vibrations.

If you are experiencing unwanted vibrations when you are driving your car, this could mean you have a problem with your tires. Your wheel alignment may have to be readjusted. If you ignore this problem, your tires may develop uneven wear over time. Driving with uneven tires may also affect your driving. This is one of the signs that your tires need to be replaced.

 

Does Your Entire Car Need to Be Replaced?

While preventive maintenance of your car is a good practice, the time will eventually come when even your best efforts will not be enough to save your beloved auto. It’s because all machines have breaking points due to unavoidable wear and tear.

If you’re planning to upgrade your ride and don’t know what to do with your old car, how about donating it to a charity that supports a worthy cause and one that will give you all the benefits that you deserve as a donor?

When you hand over your clunker to us at Veteran Car Donations, we’ll use it as a tool to transform the lives of the struggling veterans in your area. They are our former service members who are suffering from homelessness, chronic unemployment, disabilities, and illnesses, including mental health disorders.

Together with like-minded nonprofits, we are on a mission to provide our nation’s heroes the decent and dignified lives that they deserve. We collect vehicle donations and sell them at top auction houses, after which we distribute the proceeds to our charity partners. In turn, these IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations use the money to provide deserving veterans and their families with free quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.

As our donor, you can expect to receive valuable rewards. We’ll send you by mail the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your vehicle days after its sale. This will allow you to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

We’ll also haul off your car for free at a date and place of your choice. There’s no place in the U.S. where we can’t reach you since we operate throughout the country.

On top of the material rewards you’ll get, your vehicle donation will give you that exquisite feeling of satisfaction, knowing that you’ll be helping uplift the lives of our nation’s suffering heroes.

We accept nearly all types of vehicles. We even take those that have dents, scratches, or defective parts.
