If it’s been a while since your vehicle has gotten new tires, it may be time to check your tire tread.

Luckily, you can check your tire tread with just one tool: a penny!

  • Place a penny head first into several of the tread grooves across the tire

If you notice that you can see Lincoln’s head above the tread, it means your tire tread is shallow. If Lincoln’s head is covered at least up to his forehead, then your tires still have enough tread on them!
