Tire Tread and Safety

Your safety and that of your passengers is of utmost importance when driving a vehicle throughout the Houston area. One of the most critical safety concerns is how safe your tires remain. The Land Rover Houston North team can help you.

One rule of thumb is the penny test. Take a penny and insert it upside down in the tire tread. If you see the entire head of Lincoln above the edge of the tire, then it means you have bald tires and the tread measures 2/32nds of an inch. New tires have 10/32nds.

For a vehicle traveling 70 mph with new tires, it takes 195 feet to stop. With tires at 2/32nds tread, it takes 379 feet to stop. Don’t put your safety at risk and that of your passengers. Come by Land Rover Houston North today and let our expert staff help you. We can check your tread and advise you on replacement tires you may need. We are here to help you.
