The tread of the tires is important because it helps the car to grip the road. Quality tires are crucial for safe driving and for maintaining the integrity of your vehicle. It’s easy to take a look at your tires and see where the tread level is at. A common test that people will do is the penny test– you stick the penny in the tread and see how much it sticks out. If you stick the penny head down into the tread, and it doesn’t touch the head of the penny, then you need new tires.
During the change of the seasons and different weather patterns as well as normal wear and tear, tires can experience fluctuations in the tire pressure. You need to make sure your tires are properly inflated in order to operate effectively. If the air pressure is too low, then the tire won’t work correctly and you can experience a decline in gas mileage. If the air pressure is too high then it can also affect the way that the car drives and possibly even burst.
You can check the tire pressure yourself using a pressure gauge, or you can ask one of our and experienced service people to do it for you. It’s important to do everything you can to make sure that tires are working and are safe to use on the road.
We will know the proper PSI to inflate your tires too so they are working their best. If the tires are overinflated then it can cause the tread to wear faster than they normally would. Underinflated is also an issue and will cause problems with drivability. Don’t be at risk, check your tire pressure and tread and keep them at safe levels. Stop in today and see how we can help you with your tire’s tread and pressure check. We have a comfortable waiting room and stock quality tires that will help keep you safe on the road.
