Tire Maintenance, Tire Service and Tire Air Pressure - Tire Maintenance
It is important to check the wear of your tires so know when to replace them. Tires that are worn out don’t stop as well and keep traction as well. Check your tires treads for wear is quite simple. All you need to start is a penny. Take the penny and put it upside down in your tires’ tread grooves. Do this in several different spots. If Lincoln’s hair is visible, the tread has been worn down to less than 2/32 of an inch. A tire depth gauge will give you a more accurate measure of how much tread is remaining and will only set you back a couple bucks.
We strongly recommend that you replace your tires when the tread has worn between 2/32 of an inch and 4/23 of an inch (use a quarter instead of a penny and see if Washington’s scalp visible). Other indications that you need to replace your tires include punctures, cut, or snags in the tread or sidewall.
Remember, the more tread on your tires, the more control you have and the shorter the distance required to stop when breaking, especially in wet or slick conditions.

Recommended Tire Air Pressure
A very high percentage of vehicle owners don’t regularly check their Tire pressure. It’s an easy thing to overlook until it’s too late. Considering the importance of your tires to your driving safely, and considering proper tire inflation is one of the easiest ways to maintain the performance, it’s a wonder more drivers overlook this maintenance item.
If your vehicle is not equipped with an automatic tire pressure gauge, make sure to check air pressure in all four tires at least once a month, and before any long trip. If needed inflate your tires to your vehicle manufacturer's recommended level. Proper tire inflation information is often located on a sticker in the vehicle's driver’s side doorjamb.
How to ensure proper tire inflation:
- Keep a good Tire pressure gauge in your glove box. Often, hose-mounted gauges are inaccurate.
- Remember Hot Tires will Show a Higher Inflation Reading. Proper inflation levels are based on cold tires. Always remember to check your tires before driving. Summer inflation checking is best done in the morning or when the vehicle is in the shade.
- Check valve stems for damage. Cracked or damaged valve stems can leak causing under-inflation and unsafe driving conditions.
