How To Tell If You Need New Tires | Honda Frisco

Tires are an important part of the vehicle that helps with safety. Tires are designed with treads that provide your vehicle with traction. This traction keeps your car driving along the road - even in inclement weather. Without tread, the elements would literally lift your tires off the road. When you drive through snow or a puddle, the grooves in between the tread blocks of the tires become channels that divert the water or snow away from the tires, allowing the tires to maintain traction in these slick conditions. When the tread gets worn down, the water, snow, and other slippery substances don't have anywhere to go except directly under your tires severely decreasing your vehicle's traction. If your tires are nearly bald, traction will be eliminated completely. Decreased traction will negatively affect your control over the car, making the vehicle unsafe for you and your passengers. Tread depth will determine whether or not you require new tires. Speak with one of our Honda Certified Technicians today to learn about tires or to see if you need a new set.

Many of heard of the penny test to determine tire tread. On most Honda tires when the tire tread is thin, it's time for new tires! Newer tires can also have a convenience that older tires lacked - they have tread wear indicator bars built into the tires themselves! If you need any service in addition of tires, like tire alignments or rotations; read our Service FAQ hub or visit our Service Center. Remember, use the penny test described on the previous page to double check the depth, but if the bars are starting to appear on any or all of your tires, it's once again time to check with your mechanic or local tire dealer to see about getting your current tires replaced. We look forward to seeing you soon!
