The Penny Test Helps You Know Your Tire Tread Levels

October 20th, 2016 by

When it comes to enjoying lots of miles in a quality ride, any new Kia in Austin will do. As you drive miles after mile, you need to be aware of the tread on your tires. They can go a long time, but when you hit a certain point the tread might be to the point where you need new tires, and you can check tread levels easily by performing the penny test.

  • Take a penny and put it in between the tread of your tires with Abraham Lincoln’s head going down toward the tread
  • If Lincoln’s head disappears, that means your tread is good, and you are fine
  • If you are able to see all of Lincoln’s head, that means you are in need or some new tires

You can learn more with our service center here at Kia of South Austin, where our team can discuss tires and install a new set for you, at your convenience.
