When roads are rain slicked and flooded, your tires need to be up for the task. If your tires don’t have enough tread, you need to see the New Orleans tire experts at Twin Tire.
New Orleans is a great place to live most of the time. But sometimes the weather makes it rough. This week is one of those times with the heavy rains and flooding. And more rain is expected.
Now’s the time to make sure you’re prepared for anything the weather can dish out. And part of that preparation is making sure your car is up for the task. Your tires, for example. If they don’t have enough tread, they can be hazardous on rain-slick roads.
“As tires wear, a tire’s ability to handle wet braking, resist hydroplaning, and have snow traction will decline,” says Gene Petersen, tire program manager for Consumer Reports.
So how do you know when it’s time to replace your tires if they aren’t slick or have obvious bald spots?
“A tire becomes legally worn out when its tread depth reaches two thirty-second (2/32) of an inch,” according to most jurisdictions throughout North America,” according to wikihow.com.
Wikihow notes there are ways for you to tell if your tires are worn to the point that they need to be replaced:
- Insert a penny or a quarter upside down into the tread. If you can see the top of the head of the person on the coin, you probably need new tires.
- Check the wear bars that are on several places in the tire. If they are flush with the adjacent ribs, you likely need new tires.
- Use a tread depth gauge.
Or, you can make it easy on yourself and have one of the New Orleans tire experts at Twin Tire Auto Care check for you. That way, if you need new tires, you’re in the best place to get them. Twin Tire carries all brands, sizes and style of tire to fit any vehicle or driving need.
