The tires on your Honda are in constant contact with the road, so it is important that you make sure that they remain in good condition. An easy way for Brick-area drivers to do this is to routinely check the tire tread depth. In this guide from the certified technicians in the Honda of Toms River Service Center, we’ll answer the question: “How do I check tire tread wear?’’ We offer some helpful tire care tips, as well!
Brand new tires commonly have a tread depth of 10/32” to 11/32”. When the tread depth wears down to 2/32” or less, it’s time to replace them. Off-roading tires, winter tires, and some truck and SUV tires have deeper treads, so check your owner’s manual or refer to the tire manufacturer’s recommendations to determine when they need to be replaced.
Driving around Berkeley on bald or balding tires increases the chance that you’ll get a flat tire or blowout. The latter can be especially dangerous if you are traveling at high speeds on I-195.
How do you check your tire tread depth? There are tire tread depth gauges available at most Manahawkin-area auto parts stores, but if you don’t have one handy, you can use the penny test. Here’s how to check your tire tread depth with a penny:
You should use the penny test on all four tires and in different locations on each tire to ensure that they are wearing evenly. If some tires are more worn than others and the tread depth isn’t too low, then you should have your tires rotated to even out tread wear.
Some new tires come with tread wear indicator bars that show when the tread has worn down. You’ll find these indicator bars at the bottom of the tread grooves in several locations on the tire. When the bars are flush with the tread it means that there is 2/32” or less tread remaining.
