How Do I Know When to Replace My Tires?

November 27th, 2017 by

Maintaining the tires on your vehicle is important for both safety and performance reasons. You will get better fuel economy and better vehicle handling, but most importantly, you and your passengers will be safe. At Milford Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, our mechanics are quick to handle any needs from our customers – even the quality of their tire treads.


A visual inspection will help determine if a tire replacement is needed. The tread depth should also be checked. This can be done with the widely used penny test. Take a penny and place it in between the grooves of a tire. Be sure that Lincoln’s hair is downward. If you can see Lincoln’s full head, it’s time to replace that tire as it is less than 2/32-inch deep.

To find out if you need your tires replaced, you are going to want to contact our service team at 1470 Boston Post Road. The safety of you and your family is nothing to neglect, and these tire professionals will make sure that you and your family are always safe.
