You can simply test the wear on your tire tread with a Lincoln 1 cent penny. Turn the penny so that Lincolns head is pointing down and insert it into the grove of the tire tread. If the side view of the tread does not cover Lincolns head on the coin, it is time to replace those worn tires. The penny in the picture to the right shows that this tire is ok and still has some miles to go. Check them often.
Most new tires built today have a built in tread wear indicator that shows you when your tires need to be replaced. The indicators are raised nibs of rubber positioned in the bottom of the tread grove. When the nib appears even with the tread, it is time to replace your tires.
