Know When Your Tire Tread is Worn Down

Having a quality drive is important to everyone, and one of the ways you can ensure you're always getting the best driving experience is to have tires that are up to road standards. Knowing when your tires need replacement is critical to keeping your vehicle performing at its best, and the safety of you and others on the road. That's why you should know the signs of tire wear and when it's time to replace your tires.

With the right care and regular tire rotations, your tires can last for quite a while. But, the more you drive, the more they'll see signs of wear. Tire wear can be pretty noticeable; your tires are going to look worn and the tread will be less apparent as they've seen more miles. When you see this, you should do a tire tread check to see how much more you can go on these tires and whether you need new ones. It's a simple as taking a penny and placing the head of Lincoln downward into the space between the treads. If Lincoln's head is covered, you have solid tread and can continue driving. If you're able to see all or nearly all of his head, that means you've had enough tread wear that it's time to consider getting new tires.

Of course, we here at Szott M-59 Toyota can help. We have plenty of tire options for you.
