No matter if you’ve owned new Honda cars or used FIAT cars, chances are at some point you’ve changed a tire because it blew out or went flat on you at some point, and maybe you were completely blindsided. A lot times, it happens because you’ve rolled over something pointy that your tires don’t agree with. Other times, it’s because of neglect of the tires in general. The thing is, it’s not that hard to figure out if you need new tires if you know what you’re looking for! Today, Heritage | MileOne Autogroup wants to take a moment and tell you what you can do to make sure you’re always driving on reliable tires.

It’s all about treads. For tires that get worn down to oblivion, the main thing that pushes them over the edge is tread degradation. The more worn down a tire is, the less traction it has on the road as the grooves and notches in the tread end up getting less and less aggressive. So it’s always a good idea to have your tires checked when you go in for an oil change, or just check them yourself. It’s a very simple thing to do if you have a penny: simply put it into the grooves of the tire with Abraham Lincoln’s head facing you. If you can see the top of his head at any of them, it’s time to get some new tires, as they’ve surpassed the recommended minimum tread depth of 2/32 of an inch.

Now, if you’re looking for a great deal on a set of tires for your car, then look no further than the auto service centers of Heritage|MileOne Autogroup. Our experts will give you a perfectly-matched set of tires and make sure that they’re properly rotated when you return for service.
