Have you ever wondered how you can check the Wear or the depth of the tread? Well, Autobytel recently met with a Toyo Tire field engineer, who gives us two ways to check the wear or the life of your tires.
The tires wear out and the more they wear, the more they lose traction. Bald tires are very dangerous to drive, especially on wet roads. So, how does one check the depth of the tread? Well, there is a simple way called the Penny test. Take a penny, insert it into the groove with Lincoln's head down, and if you can not see the top of Lincoln's head, you still have a usable tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, it means that the tires have a tread depth of less than 2/32 ", so the tires need to be changed.
The next step is to use the tire wear indicator that is marked on the tire's sidewall. If the tread of the tire is flush with the indicator, it means that the tires are also at 2/32 "and need to be replaced. These two simple tests to check the life of your tires can be carried out at any time with the change of pocket.
