Why Should You Pay Attention To Tire Treads?

Most people know when their tires start going bald then they need to be replaced but what they don't know is that they actually need to be replaced before that. There are ways to measure the tread.

The most popular way to test tread depth is by using a penny. What you do is stick a penny in between the threads and if you can see the top of Lincoln's head then you need new tires. In addition to this, there are other ways that might signal that it's time for new tires. Some of these ways are: if your tire has random bald spots, if there are bulges or cracks in the tire, if there is something, such as a nail or pebble, stuck in your tire, if the tread is actually pulling away from the tire, and if you are having a harder time stopping or keeping your wheels straight.
