Do I need new tires?

Over time and with normal use, your tires become worn down. This can be dangerous when braking on wet or snow-covered roads. Hydroplaning occurs when the tire’s grooves are so worn that they don’t channel water out from beneath the tread. When this happens, your treads only skim the water’s surface and the steering wheel won’t respond. Keep your tires in working condition.

  • Your tread depth is below 1/16 of an inch (1.6 millimeters). To get a rough idea of your tread depth, use a penny and insert it “head down” into the tread.
  • If you can see Lincoln’s entire head, you need new tires.
  • Flat rubber bars run perpendicular to the tread. If you see them, it’s time for new tires.
  • Your tire’s sidewall is showing visible cracks or cuts. Take this seriously; your tires may soon start to leak.
  • Your tires have developed bulges or blisters. Weak spots on tires show up around blisters or bulges and can blow out your tires.

If you see any of these signs, you need to have them checked and replaced. We carry a number of brand name tires to choose from, and our trained technicians will install them properly.
