Tire Care Tips and Tricks

Tires need to have a sufficient amount of tread and internal air pressure to ensure road safety. These factors also play a role in fuel efficiency. The right amount of tire tread ensures that a vehicle has enough traction on the road. By using a tire pressure gauge, vehicle owners quickly determine if tires are properly inflated.

Checking the tread is just as easy. Insert an inverted penny into the tread. If you can see Lincoln's head, there is not enough tread and the tire should be replaced. More modern tires also feature a crossed pattern of wear bars. When the bars are visible, the tread depth is at or below 2/32 of an inch, which also indicates tire replacement time.
