Drivers often want to know, “Why is tire tread depth important,” and “How do I check tire tread wear?” Essentially, your tire treads grip the road as you drive throughout Troy, helping you remain in control of your vehicle. Over time, your tire tread depth will gradually decrease, lessening the amount of traction between your tires and the road. If your tire tread depth isn’t deep enough, this could put you in a precarious situation, especially during inclement weather conditions when roads are slippery and having good traction is more important than ever.
Want to know how to check tire tread depth? The service team at Mercedes-Benz of Rochester has you covered! All you need is a ruler or penny, and you can check your tire tread depth right at home in Rochester Hills! Find out how to check tire tread depth, below.
When you purchase a new set of tires, they’ll typically have a tread depth of about 10/32 or 11/32 of an inch (about a third of an inch). Winter tires and tires designed for off-roading purposes, as well as some truck and SUV tires have deeper tread grooves.
How do you know when it’s time to replace your tires? According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, you should replace your tires when their tread depth is measuring at 2/32 of an inch. Maintaining the proper tread depth is important to drive safely in Rochester.
While a ruler is the most accurate way to measure tire tread depth, a penny will suffice! The design on the U.S. penny makes it a perfect–and convenient–tool for measuring tire wear. Follow these steps to check the tread depth on your tires:
