How do I test the remaining tread on my tires?

The most popular way to check the remaining life of your tire’s tread is the penny test.  Insert a penny into the groove of the tire with Lincoln’s head facing down.  If your tread covers part of Lincoln’s head, your tires pass the test!  If Lincoln's head is showing, have your tires looked at by a professional, they are worn down and it’s probably time for a new set.


What does it mean if the edges of my tires are worn?

If you notice visible wear on the edges of your tires it could indicate that there is something wrong with your suspension or wheel alignment.  Both problems are much easier to fix when caught early, so if you notice uneven wear on your tires take your car into a professional immediately.  


What does it mean if my tire pressure light is on?

The tire pressure light on your dashboard is an indicator that the tire pressure monitoring system in your vehicle has detected an abnormality.  When the light goes off you can have anything from a flat to low tire pressure.   As soon as you can safely pull over, visually inspect your tire and check your tire pressure.  


What is the right tire pressure?

The optimum tire pressure varies by vehicle and will be somewhere between 30 and 35 PSI.  You can determine the recommended pressure for your car’s tires by consulting your owner’s manual.   


How often should I rotate my tires?

The rule of thumb is to rotate your tires every 7,500 miles or 7.5 months.  To keep it simple, many car owners choose to rotate their tires when they are in for an oil change.  


What size tires should I buy?

Even if you know the make, model and year of your car, it can be difficult to determine the size of tires that fit your vehicle.  Different trim levels and packages often require different tires.  The best way to determine what size tires fit your vehicle is to consult your Owner’s Manual.  If you are considering changing your rims or tire size, consult a tire professional.  They can best advise what will work for your car, so you don’t waste time and money buying tires that you can’t use.


Where do I find tire identification numbers?

The tire identification numbers are on the sidewall of your tire.  The number is required by the Department of Transportation and indicates the tire size and specs, the manufacturing location and the date the tire was made.


If my vehicle came with run flat tires, should I always use run-flat tires?

As long as the tires are the right size for your vehicle you can replace run-flat tires with regular tires.  Many cars that come equipped with run-flat tires don’t have a spare.  If you are making the switch from run flat to regular tires be sure to either purchase a full-sized spare tire or a compact alternative.


What are winter/snow tires?

Winter tires have deeper treads to allow for traction on ice and snow.  If you plan on doing any significant winter driving snow tires are a must.  You have to purchase four tires, even if you have a front wheel drive car.
