How Are Your Tires Doing?

That fact that your vehicle's tires are the only parts that actually make contact with the ground should encourage you to make sure that they are in the best condition possible. It's not merely for performance sake to do so, but it's also a matter of safety. There are a couple of things that should be routinely done to determine the need for tire replacement.

Performing a visual inspection identifies obvious faults such as dry, crack, and abnormally worn tires. A more subtle test to determine if your tire tread is less than optimal is the penny test. If you place a penny head first in the groove of the tire tread and the top of Lincoln's head is still visible, then your tire tread is less than 2/32 inch and should be changed.
