Use the Penny Test to Tell if You Need New Tires

October 13th, 2016 by

It's always a good time for a tire check. In fact, it's one of the simplest things anyone can do in Dallas and beyond, to ensure that you have the right level of tread, and that your tires are still safe for you to be driving on. Tires with worn tread need to be replaced, and figuring out if they do is as simple as taking a penny and performing one quick test.

  • Take a penny and put it in between the tread of your tires with Abraham Lincoln's head going down toward the tread
  • If Lincoln's head disappears, that means your tread is good, and you are fine
  • If you are able to see all of Lincoln's head, that means you are in need or some new tires
