No one wants to be sitting at the side of the road waiting for help to arrive. Avoid the inconvenience of breaking down by keeping an eye on your tire pressure and the tread depth of your tires.

If you insert a Lincoln penny headfirst into the groove between your tire treads, you should not be able to see the top of Lincoln's head. If you can, it's time for a new set. The manufacturer of your vehicle determines the correct pressure for your tires and cites it in your owner's manual. Check that figure against the result of your own test using a tire gauge. If your tires are low, you are expending extra fuel just to drive on them and also risking a blowout, so fill them to the proper level. If it is high, your tires will wear unevenly.

If you don't have the time to check your tires, stop by San Leandro Honda. We can give them a thorough inspection and replace them if necessary.
