Courtney’s How To: Checking Your Tire Tread Depth

November 11th, 2015 by

Curious about how often I need to replace my tires, I decided to ask our service department. I received the following answer:

“Tire manufacturers typically state that the tires are operating up to their specifications until the remaining tread-life (depth of remaining tire tread) is less than 3 thirty-seconds of an inch. This is where our tire measurement guide would move from classifying the tires as “green” (over 6 32/inch) to “yellow” (4-5 32/inch) to “red” (3 32/inch or less). Once tires are “in the red”, it’s time for replacement.”

I begrudgingly admit this answer was way over my head. So, in an effort to translate this into simpler terms, I grabbed a penny and made the following “How To” video just for you!
