How to use a Coin to Measure Tread Depth
In Minnesota and most states it is illegal to have less than 2/32″ of remaining tread depth. It is very important that you are checking your tires to make sure they have adequate tread left. Here is how to use a coin as a substitute for a tire gauge.
1. Get a penny.
2. Place the penny into the tread groves across the tire.
3. If the top of Lincoln’s head is showing, you have less than 2/32″ of tread depth.
If you have less than 2/32″ of tread left it is very important to replace your tires. Tires help your vehicle stop, especially in the extreme weather that Minnesota is known to have. Click here to schedule your appointment today!
