-Punctures & Cuts:

Of course, the most common cause of unexpected tire damage is road debris — nails, screws, bits of glass and other random trash that can find its way under your vehicle’s tires and lead to a flat. It’s simply not practical to try and avoid these objects. In most every case, they’d be too small to see until you got too close to them to avoid anyway. The best you can do is inflate your tires to the right pressure so they’re as strong as possible.

-Centre Tyre Wear:

When your tires are correctly inflated, the ideal “contact patch” is achieved — the amount of tire that rests on the road as you drive. If the tire is overinflated, the centre of the tire’s tread may bulge out slightly, reducing the contact of the tire toward the edges of the tread. As a result, the centre of the tread will be subjected to more wear. 

-Shoulder Wear:

By contrast, if your tires are underinflated, the middle of the tire may sag inward, causing more force to be applied to the edges of the tire’s tread nearest the sidewall. Or, if your suspension, steering or alignment are improperly set-up, or are knocked out of whack from a pothole or fender-bender, you might find your tires wear rapidly on one side near the shoulder. As a rule, you want to replace your tires when the tread becomes too worn.

-Kerb Rash:

“Kerb rash” usually describes the damage your wheels receive when you get a little too close to the kerb when parallel parking. The wheel rotating against the concrete kerb creates unsightly gashes in the wheel itself — but it can damage your tires, too. It can scuff or cut the sidewall, or even cause a separation between the bead of the tire and the wheel, leading to a blow-out.
