Tire Care For Safety and Longer Wear
Below are 3 areas of tire care you should keep tabs on:
Pressure- Your owner’s manual will give you the correct tire pressure depending on your vehicle. Check them using a pressure gauge. Make sure they’re not under or over-inflated as this can affect the car’s handling and stability.
Tread- Your tire tread is what gives your car traction. If the tread is too worn it won’t provide thetraction you need in severe weather. Even in warmer climates, worn treads will make driving hazardous on wet roads. To check your tread, use “the penny test”: Put the penny between your tire tread with Lincoln’s head down. If your treads come at least to Lincoln’s head, your tires have enough remaining tread to perform safely. If the tread falls below Lincoln’s head, you should replace the tire.
