How Do I Check Tire Tread Wear?

Tire Tread

Are you unsure whether your tires are in good health? Our Marine Chevrolet Cadillac service team is here to help you learn “How to check tire tread depth,” at home with a simple penny test. Yes, a penny. You can also use a ruler for a more accurate reading, but a penny will do in a pinch when you’re on-the-go in Camp Lejeune. If you have further service questions after exploring our guide, contact us at Marine Chevrolet Cadillac. 



What is the Recommended Tire Tread Depth? 

When you get new tires, they have a tire tread depth of approximately 10/32 to 11/32 of an inch, or, about a third of an inch. If you opt for winter or off-road tires, you’ll have deeper tread grooves. 

It’s time to replace your tires when your tire tread reaches 2/32 of an inch. Maintaining tread groove levels is an essential part of owning a car. Drive safe on the streets of Richlands by learning “How do I check tire tread wear?” 

The Penny Test

The penny test is a convenient way to check tire tread depth when you don’t have access to a ruler. Follow the steps below to learn how to check tire tread depth. 

  1. Place a penny in a tire tread groove with Lincoln’s head face-up.
  2. Is Lincoln’s head visible or covered between the grooves? 
  3. If you can see Lincoln’s face, then your tire tread depth is at or below 2/32 of an inch, and it’s time to replace your tires. 
  4. Repeat the process on each tire. 

More Ways to Check Tire Health

Sneads Ferry drivers who want a more accurate read can invest in a tire tread gauge or tread wear bars. These products do the work for you; marks indicate when your tire tread depth reaches 2/32 of an inch. When inspecting tire tread depth, you should also check:

  • Tire rot or disintegration
  • Tire pressure
  • Wheel alignment
  • Visible tire damage
