Know How To Read Your Tire Tread

The video below will explain more on checking your tread so let’s discuss importance.

Know How To Read Your Tire Tread

Have you ever gotten your oil changed and when they called to say your car was ready, your mechanic suggested you should replace your tires?

Notice I say should…

See, tires are expensive and a huge upsell so almost every time you go to get your oil changed they’ll try to sell you tires. Next time they do though, grab that penny and tell them they are wrong (or right depending on your findings).

If your tire tread is covering Lincoln’s head then you’re set! If it’s covering half, then you have half a tire life yet, and if it’s barely covering or not covering Lincoln’s head at all… then yes you do need new tires.

Tracking the life of your tires is super important to your safety and your cars safety.

  1. Nice article. I’m a newbie when it comes to cars so I’m trying to learn a thing or two with it. I’m currently looking for tire replacement at 4wheelonline so I’ll have an idea which one should I get.
