Aligning, rotating and properly inflating your car’s tires help keep everyone safe.
Is it time for new tires on your car? One way to tell is to do the Lincoln test. Insert a penny, head first, into the tread in your tire. If you can see Lincoln’s head, it’s time for new tires.
Tire tread however isn’t the only indicator of problems with your tires
If your tires are more heavily worn on the inside than the outside, or vice versa, you probably also have wheel alignment issues that won’t be solved with a new set of tires.
Sure, it’s convenient and sometimes you’ll initially save a few bucks buying tires on sale at a big box store but be careful.
