The Penny Test Helps Your Determine Tire Wear

October 13th, 2016 by

Your tires are what help you get from one place to another, so it’s important that you know they are providing you with the right tread, and grip of the road. If you’re not sure, there’s a simple test you can do using a penny to see if you have enough tread, or if you need new tires. That’s why without any further ado, we here at Rockwell Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM present the penny test.

  • Take a penny and put it in between the tread of your tires with Abraham Lincoln’s head going down toward the tread
  • If Lincoln’s head disappears, that means your tread is good, and you are fine
  • If you are able to see all of Lincoln’s head, that means you are in need or some new tires

For those of you with too much wear and need new tires, our service center here in Rockwall, TX would be happy to help you find your next new set of tires and install them for you. Simply contact us online and we can get back to you and arrange an appointment today.
