The danger of driving with worn out tires!!
When tires wear decreases below 3/32 or less, the rubber on the tires has a tendency not to grip. The driver feels the vehicle slipping or sliding when he brakes. As well, when the roads have snow or rainfall the slippery factor increases even more. The driver will lose control of the car much faster and in most cases will not be able to stop safely even sliding into cars, sidewalks, curbs, other cars and hopefully not pedestrians.
Other signs of worn or dangerous tires is typically seen in cracked or dried out tires which have also lost their traction factor over time. You typically see this in tires that may not be worn but are 5 years or older since their manufacturing date.
If a vehicle has worn front end parts such as tie rods or ball joints or shocks or struts the tires reflect these mechanical problems with uneven tire wear, as well as vibrations through the steering wheel and the cars seats. When you are driving with tires that reflect such wear you should immediately replace these tires to upgrade your safety conditions and avoid blowouts.
