Using tires causes them to wear until they must be replaced. Today's post from Kirby Kia of Ventura can help you know when it's time to replace your tires in Ventura, CA.

You simply need to learn the signs, and the first one is easy. Find a penny and aim Abe's head into a tire groove. When your penny's edge contacts the groove's floor, check for space between Lincoln's head and your tire's tread surface. Space indicates immediate replacement. Otherwise, you have enough tread.

Also, you can use a feature built into automotive tires. We call them tread bars, and you will find several at the bottom of each groove on a tire. Once you locate your bars, check for tread material above each one. The presence of rubber above each wear bar indicates that you can continue using the particular tire. Finding no rubber above just one bar means that you should replace the tire. For everyone's safety, never delay tire replacement.
