Car Tires Have Tread, And That's Important

Tires are one of the most crucial parts of a vehicle for staying safe. If you don’t bother to check on the condition of them; you may set yourself up for failure, personal injury, or property damage.

Most people recommend checking the tire’s tread with a penny. The head of Abraham Lincoln is 1/16 inches away from the edge. As part of the tire’s job is to take water on the surface of roadways and divert it outside the car’s path, it’s important to have sufficiently long tread. However, you should consider using a quarter to check the tread, staying true to the same instructions above. His head is 4/32 inches away from the edge, helping keep people safe.
