Why Tire Tread Matters

If you don't have sufficient tread on your vehicle's tires, there is a good chance that you won't have sufficient traction on the road. This could result in an increased stop time on icy, wet or snowy roads. There are many ways to check to see if a tire has enough tread to drive safely on, and the Honda service team at Honda of Stevens Creek can help.

If the tire looks like it has no tread, it is said to be bald. A bald tire should be replaced right away. You can also use the penny or quarter trick. This involves placing a penny or quarter into the tread and checking to see if you can see the president's head. If you can, the tire is worn and should be replaced. Taking your car to a trusted auto repair facility in San Jose, CA for service ensures that your vehicle has the right tires to keep you and your family safe while driving it.
