The Penny Test is Able to Tell You if You Need New Tires

October 13th, 2016 by


It's always important that your tires have enough tread on them. If they don't that can lead to safety and performance issues, and you'll need to get them replaced. To know if that's the case for you, there's a simple test using a penny that we recommend here at Mike Smith Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, and we'd like to share it with you today.

  • 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

If you fall into the camp of needing some new tires, our service center here in Beaumont, TX is able to help you find the right set of new tires specifically for your vehicle, and install them, as well. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact us and we'd be happy to answer them for you, as well as arrange a test drive in any of the vehicles in our showroom.
