When Do Tires Need to Be Replaced?

In order to drive safely, you need your tires to be in good condition. This will allow them to maintain the right amount of contact with the road in a variety of conditions.

Your tires need to have enough tread to be able to grip the road. Check to see if the tires are worn down to the wear bars (which run perpendicular to the treads), or take a few seconds to perform the penny test. Take a penny and place it so that Lincoln's head is pointed toward the middle of the tire. If the tread doesn't cover any part of his head, you'll need a new tire.

It's often recommended that you change your tires in pairs to keep everything balanced. Visit our service center at Klement Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM in Decatur, TX whenever you'd like us to check out your tires and to replace them, if necessary.
