Tire Tread Depth and Why You Should Care About It

Checking Tire Threads

We’ve talked about the importance of proper tire care in the past but today we’re taking a deeper dive. Tires with adequate tread depth help ensure a smooth and safe ride. The closer your tires wear down to the tread level, the less safe your drive can be. Worn tires are more susceptible to hydroplaning, lack of control and slower braking. You can check your tire’s tread depth using a tread depth gauge or by using a quarter. Simply place the quarter between the tire’s grooves and if the coin’s border is flush or above the tread, it’s time for new tires.
