Do you need new tires?

Paying attention to the tread on your tires is crucial, especially living in such a cold winter climate. Many drivers use the Penny Test to check their tires' tread.

To perform the Penny Test, you need to...

  • Place a penny vertically into the tire tread with the top of Lincoln's head facing down
  • Move so you are eye-level with the penny and can see the face of the coin
  • Look at Lincoln to see if the top of his head is still visible

If the top of Lincoln's head is covered by your tires, the tread is still good. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, your tires are balding and need to be replaced.

If you have questions about this method or the condition of your tires, reach out to our team today.
