Protect & Preserve Tire Tread
A tire’s tread refers to the grooved rubber that surrounds the tire’s exterior. Its purpose is twofold—to displace water when driving on wet roads and to increase traction on loose surfaces. More specifically, the tread’s deep grooves create a path for water and debris to move away from the front of the tire so that rubber is always in direct contact with the road’s surface. Worn tires have a shallower tread depth and can therefore no longer effectively displace water. Consequently, when the tire comes in contact with a wet surface, it will be riding on a thin layer of water and not the road. This can cause hydroplaning which is dangerous and can result in the driver losing control of the vehicle. At Spillman Service, we recommend that you have your tires checked regularly and that they be replaced at the first sign of tread wear.

Tire Cupping & Tire Separation
Not all tire wear is caused by a defect in the tires themselves. There are several other components of the vehicle that, when faulty, can result in premature tire damage. In particular, bent or worn suspension parts can cause tire cupping; a condition that looks like scalloped dips around the edges of the tread. Any worn component that connects the wheel to the body of the car–including bushings, shock absorbers, ball joints, and wheel bearings—could be the source of this issue. To fix the problem, all worn components must be replaced, and the tire should be balanced or moved to a different area of the vehicle. If you notice any cupping on your tires, bring your car in immediately before the tire becomes too worn. Spillman Service is located in Grain Valley, MO. Our technicians are ready to put their years of expertise and training to work on your suspension!
