The truth is tires can lose their ability to grip a long time before the treat is half worn. This is scary when considering how many worn, and dangerous tires there are on the road. At any point in time, at least half the vehicles on the road are traveling on worn tires. When the tread completely disappears, tires are beyond the point where you should have changed them, and we want to help you recognize when your tires are in need of a refresh.

An easy way to check your tire dread depth is to insert a Lincoln penny in the tread. Face its head toward you and facing down. If you can see any part of Lincoln’s head, it means your tread depth isn’t deep enough.

If it’s time for a tire change, we welcome you to bring your vehicle to our dealership at Carousel Audi Iowa City. We can remove all the mystery from buying the right tire and suggest the best type for your vehicle. We want everyone to be safe on the road during any season of the year.
