VIDEO: How to Test Tire Tread With a Penny

penny test

Think it may be about time to replace your tires? There’s an easy way you can check their tread at home. All you need is a penny—really!

This quick and simple method is called The Penny Test. All you have to do is take Lincoln and stick him head first into the tread grooves. If his entire forehead is covered, you still have many miles left with your tires. If just his hair is covered, you’ll need to replace your tires soon. However, if you can see the top of his head, it’s time to buy new tires in Scottsdale.

Press play on the video below to see The Penny Test in action.
