Check Your Tire Tread By Doing the Penny Test

October 14th, 2016 by

Tire TreadsAs with all our new Mazda vehicles in our showroom, you’re getting a lot of quality, and it’s important you not only take care of it, but know when you need to receive maintenance, or a new set of tires. For the latter, it’s actually easy to determine. All you need to do is take a penny, and check the tread, and we’re going to explain how to do that!

  • Take a penny and put it in between the tread of your tires with Abraham Lincoln’s head going down toward the tread
  • If Lincoln’s head disappears, that means your tread is good, and you are fine
  • If you are able to see all of Lincoln’s head, that means you are in need or some new tires

At Team Gillman Mazda, our team would be happy to help you find a new set of tires, and install them for you in our service center here in Houston. If you’d like to learn more, feel free to contact us online today to schedule an appointment, or stop in during regular business hours.
