Tire wear directly affects the driver’s safety and performance of the vehicle. It is essential for drivers to be well-informed about how to check for tire wear on a regular basis.
Importance of Checking for Tire Wear
The deeper the groove, which is on the surface of the tire, the more grip a tire will have. You can prevent danger of unexpected accidents by checking for tire wear on a regular basis.
Recommended Interval Between Check-ups
Hankook recommends that you check for tire wear at least once a month. Also, make sure you check your tires before and after a long journey.
Checking for Tire Wear with Tire Tread Wear Indicator
You can check for the depth of the groove by using a tire tread depth gauge or by observing the Tread Wear Indicator on the side of the tire. To ensure optimum safety and performance, tires should be replaced when the tire groove wears below.
