Do You Need New Tires?
When it comes to basic maintenance and road safety, having quality tires goes a long way in improving your car’s handling and enhancing its safety as a whole. There are small signs you can look out for like if you notice cracks and bulges on your tires or if the tread looks worn out. You may also notice performance changes, like your car shaking when braking.
A common test people use to check their tires is the penny test whereby they stick a penny in the tread and if you see the head on the penny, and it is visible, that shows the tires need replacement. However, this may not be the most accurate test as different cars have different tire requirements. Your tires may need replacement long before you can see the head on the penny.
