Tire Tread & Pressure Checks Ensure Safe Driving

There are two tests the service technicians at Jaguar Nashville in Brentwood, TN use to determine whether your tires can continue performing well enough to ensure safe driving. One is a tire pressure gage that helps determine whether your tires are underinflated or overinflated. Either condition can reduce gas mileage. Tires should be checked on a monthly basis to ensure they are inflated to the pressure levels recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.

The second tire test uses a penny inserted into the tread with Abe Lincoln's head upside down. If we see all of Lincoln's head visible, it means the tire tread has worn down to the point that a new tire is recommended to keep you safe on the road. Some tires also include a cross-pattern trend called a "wear bar" that when visible, are an indicator the tire needs replacing. Proper tire tread and pressure are crucial for safe driving.
