Understanding Tread and Pressure

July 19th, 2019 by

There are plenty of maintenance tasks you can do that will help to not only improve the way your car functions, but can also save you from big expenses in the future. Monitoring your tire pressure and tread depth occasionally could save you the cost and inconvenience of repairing a blowout and can also keep you from damaging your rims.

To ascertain proper tread depth, use a Lincoln penny and insert it in the groove between two treads headfirst. If the top of Lincoln's head is exposed, your tread is low. To check your tire pressure, first consult your owner's manual, where the manufacturer will have listed the acceptable range of pressure. Using a tire gauge, measure your pressure and fill or deflate your tires as required.
