Penny Test  for Tire Tread

Penny Test for Tire Tread

A penny can be used to check if the tread on your tires is too low. Place the penny in one of the grooves on the tired, Abe's head first. If Abe's head is covered partly by the tread, the tread is fine. If all of Abe's head is visible, you need to replace your tire. Tread that has worn down to 1/16 of an inch indicates a tire that needs be replaced.

Wow… That is pretty cool idea. Even though there are markers on tires these days which will help us understand if it is time to change the tires, I think this one is more understandable and anyone can actually use this technique.
