Knowing When to Change Your Tires is Crucial

To avoid potential accidents in rainy weather or on slick roads, consider getting your tires inspected or replaced if they have low treads. A good way to find out tire tread width is by using a penny.

On a penny, Lincoln's head is 2/32 of an inch from the top of the coin. Anything less than 2/32 of an inch tread is considered dangerous, and can even land you a ticket. Normally, people change their tires at 4/32 of an inch thickness. You can use a quarter to find this measurement, as the top of Washington's head on a quarter is 4/32 of an inch from the top.
