An easy way to check your tires is using a penny. Insert Abe's head into the tread in a couple of spots on each tire. If you can see the entire top of his head, your tread is less than one-sixteenth of an inch deep - below the level where you can count on it in slippery conditions. It should be replaced. While you're administering the Abe test to your tires, take a good look at them. Any signs of uneven tread wear? That could mean a number of different problems - under inflation, tires out of balance, or wheels out of alignment. If you can tell that your tread is wearing unevenly on some of your tires, ask your tire professionals at Adirondack Tire to take a look. They can correct a problem before it causes trouble.

Are you rotating your tires every 6,000 miles? It is a good way to preserve your investment in tires. The forces exerted on tires differ, depending on the tire's position on the car, and wear patterns may differ. Front wheels work harder because they do the turning and most of the braking. And rear wheels can be unevenly loaded.

Tires have 'wear bars' built into them. These are indicators that appear when you have worn your tread down to the limit. Don't neglect the signals your tires are sending you. Be tire smart and do your part!
