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