The Importance of Checking Tire Tread Depth

Tires are just like many other things in life, after time they get worn down and don't work as good. Do you know when you should replace your tires? You know that tires get worn down and eventually need to be replaced, but you aren't sure exactly when you need to get them replaced. Over here at Bill Kidd's Volvo, we recommend looking for new tires once your current tires have a tread depth of less than 4/32 of an inch.

When tread depth starts getting less than 4/32 of an inch, the distance it takes your car to stop after slamming on the brakes increases. When it rains and the roads get wet, tires with shallow treading will slip and slide much more easily. Obviously, this can be very dangerous.

If you aren't sure if your tires need to be replaced, come visit our dealership in Cockeysville and we will take a look at it for you.
