Checking Tire Pressure

It is important to check your tires pressure at least oncea month for the following reasons…

- Most tires will naturally lose air over time

- Tires can lose pressure suddenly if struck against a curb or other object

- With Radial tires, it is usually not possible to determine under inflation with visual inspection

slide4
The tire tread provides the gripping action and traction that prevents your vehicle from slipping or sliding, especially when the road is wet or icy.
slide5
In general, tires are not safe and should be replaced when the tread is worn down to 1/16 of an inch. Tires have built-in treadwear indicators that let you know when it is time to replace your tires. These indicators are raised sections spaced intermittently in the bottom of the tread grooves. When they appear "even" with the outside of the tread, it is time to replace your tires.
slide6
Another method for checking tread depth is to place a penny in the tread with Lincoln's head upside down and facing you. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, you are ready for new tires.
