Proper Tire Care

Tires are an important part of your vehicle. After all, they're its sole connection to the road. Your engine spins the wheels, and your tires transfer that power to the road. That's why it's so important to make sure that your tires are in good shape.

As you drive along, your tires slowly start to wear down. Healthy tires ensure that you're always in control on the road, in any weather condition, and they help you stop and start safely. As the tread starts to wear away, you begin to lose traction. That's more than just inconvenient; it's unsafe.

So, how can you tell if your tires are in good shape? One easy tire test is the penny test. Simply insert a penny into a tread groove on your tire. If you can see all of Lincoln's head, your tires are worn down, and need to be replaced. Try inserting the tire into several different parts of your tire; you shouldn't be able to see all of his head on any part.
