Taking Care of Your Tires

Since tires are the parts of your vehicle that maintain contact with the road, it's essential that your tires are in good condition. You can check them at home or bring them into Honda of Abilene if you require assistance.

One of the first things you should check is your tire tread. The level of tread you need to drive safely is 2/32", but it's a good idea to change out your tires before you get down to the minimum. A tip is to use the "Penny Test." Insert a penny, head down, into your tread. If you can see President's Lincoln full head, it's time to get new tires.

A second thing to note is tire pressure. Your owner's manual and a sticker attached to the edge of the driver's door post will indicate the optimal level. A tire gauge can tell you the pressure in just a few seconds.
