Tire Info “Do the Penny Test”

The Penny Test for Tires – How it works
Just take a penny, hold it vertically with Lincoln facing you and place the dated section of the coin into several tread grooves across the tire. If part of our 16th President’s head is always hidden by the tread, you have more than 2/32″ of tread depth remaining.
After you establish a ballpark tread-depth for the first section of your first tire, begin checking tire tread depth on your other tires. To do this, just repeat the process – and be sure to check a couple of different sections of each tire, including the middle grooves. Measure inner and outer grooves, as well. That will tell you whether your tires are wearing evenly.
If the penny test for tires reveals that the tread wear is uneven, but there is still enough depth to avoid replacing the tires, first check the tire pressure. Then think about having the wheels re-balanced or the vehicles “alignment” checked
