The Penny Test Proves Golden When Checking Tire Tread

October 18th, 2016 by

There are a lot of various road conditions around Egg Harbor Township and Atlantic City, and if you do plenty of driving, over time, you are going to see your tire tread wear down. You want the best tread possible because it gives you a firm grip in these various conditions, and to test out your tires, all you need to do is perform the penny test.

  • Take a penny and put it in between the tread of your tires with Abraham Lincoln’s head going down toward the tread
  • If Lincoln’s head disappears, that means your tread is good, and you are fine
  • If you are able to see all of Lincoln’s head, that means you are in need or some new tires

Here at BMW of Atlantic City, our team would be happy to discuss your tire tread levels in greater detail and examine them for you. Our service center can offer you suggestions on the right tires for your BMW, and install them for you, so contact us today if you have any questions, or want to schedule an appointment.
