|Tires are complex, but checking your tread wear doesn’t have to be. Use the penny trick. Turn a penny upside down and place it in one of your tire’s major grooves. If part of Lincoln’s head is covered by the tread, you’re good to go. If you can see all of his head, it’s new tire time. Learn More: www.ustires.org/ntsw #NTSW #TireMaintenance

Are you monitoring your tire pressure? Under-inflated tires generate excessive heat build-up and stress, causing irregular wear and internal damage. Over-inflated tires are more likely to be cut, punctured, or damaged when hitting an obstacle, such as a pothole.
Tires are complex but ensuring proper tire pressure isn’t. And maintaining good pressure allows your tires to efficiently support the vehicle’s weight while supporting your ability to control the vehicle for maximum performance, leading to better fuel economy.

Rotating your tires is an important part of tire maintenance. Periodically changing the position of each of the tires on your vehicle will help spread wear evenly across all four tires, maximizing their tread life.
Rotate your tires based on recommendations in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. If no rotation period is specified, we recommend every 5,000 to 8,000 miles or when you change your oil. It is a good way to inspect all your tires for damage or uneven wear, ensuring that your car is #RoadReady.

Regularly checking your tires’ tread can reduce the likelihood of being involved in a crash.
Tires are complex, but using the penny test to check your tread is a cheap and easy way to keep yourself and your family safe on the road. Turn a penny upside down and place it in one of your tire’s major grooves. If part of Lincoln’s head is covered by the tread, you are good to go. If you can see all of his head, it’s new tire time.
