When to Replace Worn Tires


Road safety is one of the most important thing for any driver. No matter how good you are at driving, worn out tires can make driving dangerous. So how do you know when it's time to replace worn tires?

One of the biggest tell-tale signs is if your tire has any noticeable bulges or indents. If you notice anything out of place on your tire, it's an easy way to know you should change your tires. Many people also recommend the "penny test" -- a fairly simple test that just about anyone can do. You simply need to push the head of the penny into your tire's tread -- if you see Lincoln's head on the tire tread, you know it's time for new tires
