How to Check Your Tire Tread at Home

If you drive a car, you should know the importance of tire tread. Not having enough can cause you to lose control when the roads are wet or icy. You also have increased risk of a blowout. So how do you make sure your tread is good enough?

If you use the penny trick, its time change your ways. Over here at Thys Motor Company, we recommend the quarter trick. Grab a quarter and stick it upside down into your tire tread. If the top of Washington's head is showing, start looking for more tires soon. The penny trick works too, but it isn't as safe as the quarter trick, which gives you more time to anticipate buying new tires.

Here at Thys Motor Company, we’re happy to help anyone find the tires that are right for their vehicle. If you find yourself in need of new tires because your tread is getting too low, come visit us as soon as possible.
