A main safety responsibility of a car owner is to make sure a vehicle’s tires are in top condition. You accomplish this important endeavor by regularly checking your tires’ treads. You should perform what generally is known as the penny test at least once a month.

The penny test involves inserting a one-cent coin between the treads of each time. As long as you cannot see the top of Lincoln’s head, you’ve life left on a tire. If you can see the top of the former President’s head, you need to replace your tires.

If you are in need of new tires, or any other type of service associated with them, the knowledgeable team at Maus Acura of North Tampa stands ready to assist.
