You should replace your tires every six years.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says you should change your tires every six years, regardless of how many miles you’ve driven on them.
In the meantime, make sure your tires are always properly inflated and have your tires roasted every 7,5000 miles.
However, there are indicators to watch out for that mean it’s time to change your tires, regardless of how long its been since your last tire change:
  • Your tire is flat, slashed, or punctured
  • The tire tread is too low
  • The tire tread wear is uneven
  • There is excessive vibration when driving on smooth roads
