Routine maintenance on your tires is critical because it ensures your vehicle maintains its optimum performance and safety. The condition of your tires determines how your vehicle runs in everyday driving, its gas-mileage and your safety during inclement weather. Rotating your tires should also be a part of routine maintenance as it prevents poor handling, reduced fuel efficiency and uneven wear. Making sure your tires are in great condition keeps you safe, comfortable and will save you money down the road.
How Often Should Honda Tires Be Replaced?
Depending on your driving style, the average tire life is typically between 25,000 and 50,000 miles. Factors such as your driving habits and the vehicle’s alignment will determine the life of a tire. The characteristics of the tire and proper inflation also play a crucial role in tire life. A popular method to see if your tires need to be replaced is the penny test.
The Penny Test
Step 1: Place a penny between the grooves or the tread of your tire.
Step 2: Be sure when you place the penny in the tread that Lincoln’s head is facing down.
Step 3: If you can see Lincoln’s entire head, it may be time to replace the tire because the trend is no longer deep enough to provide proper traction and performance.
