Driving Safe Depends on the Condition of Your Tire Tread

Getting to your next destination safely depends on the condition of the tread on your tires. Checking the tread and sidewalls on all the tires are one of the best ways to keep you and your passengers safe while on the road.

Tire tread that is 4/32 of an inch or less is the new standard for when to replace your tires. Inserting a Quarter into the tread and measuring from the top of Washington's head to the edge of the coin is a quick way to measure 4/32 of an inch. Tread on any tire that is less than 4/32 of an inch in depth leads to an increased rate of vehicle crashes, due to increased stopping time and hydroplaning on wet surfaces.

For peace of mind and optimal driving safety the service professionals at Coleman Dodge Jeep Ram in New Boston, TX are there to help you maintain and service the tires on your vehicle for all types of driving conditions. Schedule your tire service appointment today.
