Be Able To Stop Quickly - Do You Have Good Enough Tires?

Most of us are familiar with a unique test in which, to find out if there’s enough tread on your car’s tires to make it through wet, rainy conditions, drivers stick a penny in the tire’s tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, you’re not legal to drive.

Research has found that the penny test was not totally sufficient for determining if one could drive safely on the roadways: it only measures to 2/32nds of an inch deep. When a car traveling 60 miles per hour attempted to stop abruptly, tires with tread extending only 2/32nds inches long took a whopping ten car lengths longer to stop than a driver with new, 10/32nds of an inch-long tire tread.

If you are worried about being able to stop in both wet and dry conditions, consider contacting us – Palm Springs Lincoln – as we make the tire installation process more seamless than ever before.
