How do you fix bald tires?

I recently bought a used Chevy, and the tires on it are practically bald. Is there a way I can fix bald tires, or do I have to purchase new ones?

Congratulations on the new-to-you Chevy! Unfortunately, when you have bald tires, the best thing you can do is purchase new tires. Tires with worn-down treads will get significantly less traction and can be hazardous on the road, especially in wet weather.
A new set of tires can range widely in price depending on the quality you choose to purchase:
  • Inexpensive tires typically range between $50 and $150 per tire
  • Moderately priced tires range from $100 to $300 each
  • High-end tires or ultra-performance tires can go as high as $900 per tire
