Your tires are one of the most crucial parts of your vehicle — making routine tire maintenance is an important part of keeping your vehicle operating efficiently and safely. Getting your tires rotated regularly will help prevent uneven wear and extend the life of your tires, but eventually — all tires wear out and will need to be changed.
When Should You Replace Your Tires?
The average life of your tires is between 25,000 and 50,000 miles. A lot of factors go into how long tires last, such as the way you drive, the vehicle alignment, proper inflation, and even the characteristics of the tire. If you’re wondering if your tires are worn to the point of needing replacement, there’s a simple test for figuring that out.
Step 1: Place a penny between the tread of your tires.
Step 2: Put the penny face down so that Lincoln’s head is facing down into the tread.
Step 3: See if the top of Lincoln’s head disappears between the ribs and the treads. If you are able to see his entire head, it may be time to change the tire because your tread is too low to provide good traction, grip and performance.
