When to Purchase New Tires
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are 11,000 tire-related crashes that happen each year.
When your tires begin to lose traction and braking abilities, we want to make sure that our New Jersey customers are safe behind the wheel.
Your ability to control your vehicle depends on the traction between your tires and the road. When your tire treads are worn, your vehicle is less likely to handle adverse conditions and can also make other parts of your car wear down faster.
When the tread on your tires is down to 1/16th of an inch, your tires are no longer safe. You can measure this with a tread depth indicator or gauge, or you can use the common "Penny Test."
- Place a penny upside down in the tire tread with Lincoln's face facing you.
- If you can see the top of Lincoln's head or more, replace your tires ASAP.
- If Lincoln's hair is somewhat visible, you'll need to replace tires soon.
This is a great time to schedule an appointment with us. We'll help you choose the right tires for your KIA.
- If you can't see Lincoln's hair, your tires are in great shape.
Get the Most Miles from Tires
The best way to get the most life out of your tires? Take care of them.
To keep your tread wearing evenly, ask us to perform an alignment and rotation whenever you bring your vehicle in for an oil change. We'll keep them in the best shape possible and let you know when we recommend replacements.
