Tires have grooves in them for a reason. These "treads" help clear water out from under the tires on wet roads, which boosts traction. Treads wear down as the miles add up on the tires. Once the treads get too low, the tires require replacing. So, drivers need to stay informed about the treads' condition.

Tread depth tells a tale about how much tread is left. A penny check provides a simple way to get an idea about the treads. More accurate measurements come from a tread depth measuring tool.

Tires also require appropriate inflation levels for performance and safety. Air does escape tires gradually, so using a gauge to determine the psi becomes vital. When the psi reads low or high, someone must add or deflate some air from the tire.
