Road trip plans this summer in Florida? Worn tires may be a factor in one of 11 vehicle crashes according to NHTSA. There’s an easy way to check the treads on your tires using some spare change:
Take a penny and place it in multiple grooves around your tires. If the top of Lincoln’s head is always covered, you have more than 2/32? of tread remaining. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, it is time to replace your tires.
While you’re checking your tires you might go ahead and make sure your tire pressure is set correct. Not only does this help make sure your tires are able to work appropriately, but proper tire inflation improves gas mileage!
Basic checks like these take just a few minutes and can help save lives. Share these tips with your friends and family to help keep everyone safer on the road.
