Who says a penny doesn’t buy you anything? With this easy test, a penny can buy you a peace of mind when it comes to your tires and safety.
Place a penny head first into several tread grooves across the tire.
If you always see the top of Lincoln’s head, your treads are shallow and worn. If this is the case, your tires need to be replaced.
If part of Lincoln’s head is always covered by the tread, you have about 2/32 of an inch of tread depth remaining. At Lupient Chevrolet we would replace tires on a pre-owned vehicle. So try the penny test . . . then stop in at Lupient Chevrolet and we will be happy to verify and make sure you are ready for another Minnesota winter.
