Why Your Tire Tread Is So Important

One of the single most important parts of your vehicle are the tires. Keeping up with how much they have worn away over their lives is extremely important as well as easy. The tread lines on your vehicle's tires are designed not only to provide traction but they also have special grooves in them that are designed to channel water away.

Since the tread gets worn away over time, many tires have special bars set between the tread lines called wear bars that are meant to inform you that it is time to change the tire when the tread has worn to that point. You can also bring your vehicle to our service center to make sure it is cared for in the best way possible.

Another easy way to tell if your tires have worn away to the point of replacement is to take a quarter and insert it into the tread lines of your tire with Washington's head pointing towards the center of the tire. If you are able to see the top of his head, time to replace the tire.
