Everyone wants to get the most out of the tires on their car. Tires are the reason a vehicle goes round and it is imperative to ensure their stability. An easy trick of the trade to monitor the wear on the tires of a vehicle is to rely on the help of Honest Abe Lincoln. Take a penny and insert it into the tread of the tires if Abraham Lincoln’s head is always covered than your tires are still safe to drive on.
The ability for a tire to perform in the way that it was designed is based on the tire tread. Tire tread is designed to assist the vehicle in inclement weather. This includes resisting hydroplaning and getting through snow. To get technical the grooves in your tires are used to allow rain and snow a way to escape. Water can’t be compressed by the weight of the vehicle but the tire treads can displace the water so that the vehicle is touching the ground instead of floating in the water. Maintain traction in your vehicle by periodically checking your tire treads. Trust honest Abe he will show you when you need new tires.
