“Even the most sophisticated braking systems won’t work if the tires aren’t gripping the road. Maintaining your tires and replacing them when necessary is vital to safety.

The trouble is that a lot people don’t think about tires this way. That’s understandable. Tires are boring to the average car owner. As a result, there are far too many of us out there that don’t know how to determine whether they need a new set of tires, or which when it’s time for replacement.

Take a look at these four useful and simple tips regarding tire replacement. They’ll help you save money and stay safe on the road.

1. Determine if it’s time for replacement

To determine whether you even need new tires, do some simple checks on your current set. First, take a penny and place the edge into the groove of each tire. Insert the edge of the penny into the tread upside down, with the top of good ol’ Honest Abe’s noggin going in first. If the top of Lincoln’s head is covered by tread, that means you still have an acceptable and safe amount of tread. Do this test at various points around the perimeter of the tire. If the top of Lincoln’s head is visible at any point around the tire, it’s time to go tire shopping.” To read the entire article click here.
