Is Low Tire Tread Dangerous?

This a commonly asked question, as many folks don't know that the tread on your tires is one of the most pivotal safety features on your car. Tire tread is necessary to the overall function of your vehicle, as it provides the proper level of grip that a vehicle needs to drive suitably on roadways.

Without that grip, a driver will find it harder to handle the car, especially at high speeds. Braking also becomes much more difficult, as the car lacks the grip necessary to come to full and complete stop.

How Can I Tell If My Tread Is Too Low?

If you've had your car for more than three years, experts recommend keeping an eye on your tread, since the three-year mark is around the time that many automakers suggest replacing your tires.

If you're not sure, you can do a very simple "penny test," which can tell you if your tread has worn too thin. Basically, all you need to do is place a penny upside down in your tire's tread. If you can't see Lincoln's hair, then your tires are fine. If you can, then you should bring your car in for a tire replacement.

What Other Tire-Related Problems Should I Look out For?

On top of appropriate tread levels, drivers should also keep an eye on things like bubbles or bulges in the tire's sidewall, which could be a big indicator of internal tire damage. You should also be aware of how your car is driving, as vibrations in your steering wheel or the vehicle pulling to one side or the other indicate poor alignment or other serious issues.
