How to Assess a Tire's Tread Depth

If your tires look worn or damaged, it is time to replace them immediately. It is never a good idea to drive on bald tires, no matter how good the weather conditions are. One way to test the tread depth on a tire is to stick a penny into the groove with Lincoln's head facing down.

If you can see his head, your tires do not have enough depth to drive safely on. It may also be possible to use a quarter if you don't have a penny. In some cases, it may be possible to only replace one or two tires at a time. However, be sure to keep your tires rotated to ensure even wear.

When your tires need to be replaced, bring your car to Riverside Auto Group for prompt tire replacement service. Doing so may make it easier to keep your vehicle in good running condition.
