How to know if it's time to replace your tires

Worn or damaged tires can affect your traction and make your car unsafe to drive. By knowing the signs that your tires need replacement, you can keep your car driving safely.

Worn treads are a major sign that your tires need replacement. If you notice uneven wear, or your tire doesn't pass the "penny test," it's time to replace them. To do the penny test, stick a penny into the tread with Lincoln's head facing inward. If you can see the top of his head, your tread depth is too shallow and you need new tires.

Damaged tires can lead to a dangerous blowout. If you see bulging or cracks on the tire, or if you see an object like a nail sticking into the treads, you should replace the tire.
