Your tires are the only item between you and the roads; therefore, they need to be safe for you to drive your Ford Ranger on the roadways. Your tires work in conjunction with your braking system to stop your pickup. Many items can cause you to require new tires, other than them having worn tread. Since your tires travel on the road, the tread on the rubber will eventually wear down from friction while they are turning on the ground.
The life span of your tires is directly dependent on how many miles you drive. A person that has an hour-long commute both to work and back home will wear their tires more quickly than a person who leaves a few miles from work. Your tires will last longer if they are inflated with the correct amount of air and if you rotate them to promote even and longer wear.
Fortunately, your tires will give you some signs that they have little life left in them and need replacing. If you notice any odd noises or bad performance in the rain, you most likely need new tires. In wet conditions, your Ranger may hydroplane or skid when you apply the brakes. Worn tires can also have odd wear patterns on the tread or just seem to make your ride very bumpy. As soon as you notice any signs of worn tires, you should get them replaced; otherwise, you may wear other parts out as well and have repairs that are more expensive.
On the other hand, if your tires are worn, you could get into a serious auto accident when your Ranger skids or hydroplane into another vehicle on the highway. You also may not be able to stop in time to avoid a crash.
