Time for Tire Replacement

Tires become old and worn down, even the highest quality tire needs to be replaced eventually. When tires are worn down to 2/32nds it is time for new tires. A trick to tell when the tread depth has reached that point is to insert a quarter upside down in the tread; if you can see the top of Washington's head, the tire needs to be replaced.

Driving becomes dangerous when the tread wears down and can especially impact driving during inclement weather. Schedule an appointment with Audi St. Paul and we'll take a look at your tires!

Use a coin as a tread depth gauge; insert a penny into the tread with Lincoln’s head down. If the top of Abe’s head touches the tread face, your tires are at 2/32” depth, the minimum required by law, and it’s time for a replacement. Now try the test again with a quarter.
