“If you suspect your tires might be worn, here are some tips to help you know when your tires need to be checked and replaced.

Tread depth

Grab a penny and get ready to stick it in your tire tread. Put the penny in upside down, so you are looking at Honest Abe and the top of his head is inside the tire. If you can see the top of his head, the tire depth is becoming dangerously low.

Newer tires have a feature that eliminates the need to turn to Abe. As the tread wears, a series of flat rubber bars that run perpendicular to the tread will begin to appear. When you can see these bars it’s time for new tires.

The sidewall
