The penny test is a simple way to check your tires tread. Turn the penny so that Lincoln’s head is pointing down into the tread. If the top of his head disappears, then tread is fine. If not, the tread is not deep enough and it may be time to replace the tire.
Be sure to check multiple spots around each tire and pay attention to the spots that look the most worn. Although consistent wear around the tire is normal, uneven wear could be a sign of improper inflation or wheel misalignment.
