Be sure to check your tire’s tread regularly and to replace your tires if the tread has been worn or down 2/32″. When you tread gets low, replacing your tires isn’t really an option, it’s a legal requirement. By law, your tires are considered to be unsafe for driving when they reach that 2/32″ level.
No matter what type of tires your driving on, winter (or snow) tires, all-season tires or summer tires, if the tread is worn and bald, your safety and traction are drastically impacted. Tread helps your tires grip the road and helps your vehicle respond quicker in adverse weather conditions, such as rain, snow and ice.
