Inspecting Toyota Tires and Improving Lifespan Closeup of hand holding penny in tire tread

It is important that every driver inspects their vehicle’s tires regularly to check for any damage or causes of concern. A critical factor in a tire’s performance is the amount of tread left on the tire. To check that your tire has enough tread, insert a penny into the tread of one of your vehicle’s tires with Lincoln’s head upside down and facing you. If the tread does not cover any of Lincoln’s head then it is time for a replacement.

In addition to checking the tread, the tire’s air pressure should be checked each month and the tires should be rotated every 5,000 miles. It is also a good idea to have your wheels balanced every 3,000 – 6,000 miles and the alignment checked twice a year.
