How to Check Tire Wear

Your tire tread is the grooved circumference of your tires. As you drive, the tread slowly starts to wear down, which is expected. Your tires' tread should wear evenly across all four tires for the maximum lifespan. However, if your tread wears too much, it can negatively affect your handling, fuel economy, and stopping distances.

While some of these issues may develop slowly, it's crucial to keep an eye on how the tread is wearing to avoid preventable issues. When a tire has less than 2/32 of an inch left, it's no longer safe or legal to drive with them. Drivers around Hale, MI, can check their tire tread for themselves by placing a penny head-down into the grooves of the tread. If you can't see the top of Lincoln's head, you still have enough tread left.

We recommend having our expert service team inspect your tire tread for you to save time and deliver a high degree of precision.
