When your tires are in contact with the road, they create friction which directly affects the handling and stopping capabilities of your vehicle. The amount of friction created can vary between different types of roads, weather conditions, and the amount of tread remaining. Most of the time a passenger car will begin with 9 or 10/32nds of usable tread. Light trucks and snow tires may have more. As you drive, friction and road wear slowly eat away at the tread and reduce the depth. With less tread depth, they will lose the ability to perform at an optimum level. Performance on wet surfaces and snow, stopping distance, and ride quality all suffer as a result of reduced tread depth.

Tire Performance

Tire performance capabilities decrease significantly once the tread depth drops to 4/32nds of an inch. If the tread is at or below this tread depth, they are unsuitable for wet or snowy conditions, so we recommend replacing them at this time. They are not safe and should be replaced when the tread is worn down to 2/32 of an inch. At 2/32nds, your tires are considered legally bald in some states and must be replaced. These tires present a severe safety risk, as their stopping distance and wet/snow traction are significantly decreased.

Tread Depth

Being that tread depth plays such a pivotal role in safety and stopping distance, it is important to measure and know how much tread remains on your tires before you travel. There are several ways to evaluate your tread depth. Let the experts at Midwest Auto Care help you and your vehicle stay safe and reliable on the roads.
