Use the Lincoln Penny Test to Test Your Tire Tread Depth

You may have noticed that race cars race with smooth threads. This enable their tires to better grip the road during high speeds. Normal cars have varying threads to handle rain, snow, mud, ice, and wet road conditions. These tire threads provide traction by pushing the water away when the tire hits the road.

There are signs that your tire treads are wearing, and that it’s time for new tires. These signs include cracking or cuts in the sidewalls, and excessively worn treads, excessive vibration, uneven tread wear. One way to test your tire treads is with a Lincoln penny. With the penny facing upside down, look to see if Lincoln's head shows. If so, it’s time for a tire change.

Bring your car to our service center and let our professional technicians examine your tires. Routine tire maintenance is the best way to go. Our technicians can change your tires and have you back on the road in no time at all.
