The Importance of the Right Tires


There are three basic measurements you should know that are considered milestone tread depths for your vehicle's tires. The first is 2/32 inch tread. This is what the old standard used to be for the time to replace your tires. Anything below this is considered a bald tire.

The second is 4/32 inch tread depth. This is the new standard today. When your tires reach 4/32 inch tread depth, it's time to replace them. When your tread depth falls below this, your risk of an accident increases.

The third is 10/32 in tread depth. This is considered to be good tread for most vehicles. All terrain tires, as well as winter tires, may have even deeper treads.
