Tire blowouts are too common on the road. If you have worn tires, then you are likely headed for a blowout, which could cause more damage. That’s why it’s so important to replace your worn tires as soon as the tread starts to wear down past the acceptable range. A simple penny test was created to test your tread, but some new tires also have tread indicators. You can use a penny and place it between the tire tread, then look at the top of the penny. If you can see half of the penny or Lincoln’s head above the tread, then your tread is very worn.

Worn tires aren’t the only problems leading to tire blowouts though. The leading cause is actually incorrect tire pressure. When tire pressure is too low, your tires become more susceptible to flats and blowouts, but you also don’t want to fill your tires with too much air. Most new cars have a tire pressure monitoring system and stickers on the driver’s side door with the recommended tire pressure for your vehicle.
