Ride quality and performance depend largely on your tires, and not all tires are created equally. Every original equipment tire has been rated by Mazda to be the best available for your specific model and driving needs. Whether you need all-season or all-terrain tires, your Mazda Dealer will find the right tires for you.
INSPECT YOUR TIRES AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH
CHECK YOUR TREAD WEAR
The tread on your tires can tell you more than how many miles you’ve logged. Worn tires should be replaced when the tires’ tread-wear bar meets the tread. Have your tires inspected regularly and do not drive on a damaged tire or wheel. Visit your authorized Mazda Dealer for a Full Circle Service inspection to check the wear of your tires for your safety and to maintain your vehicle’s best performance.
Note: Measure tread depth away from the tread-wear bar.
Driving on bald or worn-out tires can make driving unsafe on City of Industry roads, so it’s important to be mindful of the depth of your tire treads. Rather than having to deal with changing a flat tire, take preventative measures and learn how to monitor tire tread depth courtesy of Puente Hills Mazda!
Please refer to your tire warranty guide for additional information.
THE PENNY TEST
Tread depth is measured in 32nds of an inch. Tread depth on new tires typically measures 10/32 inches or 11/32 inches (about a third of an inch), while trucks, SUVs, or winter tires may have deeper treads. When tires reach 2/32 inches, the U.S. Department of Transportation recommends replacing them.
To check whether you’ve hit the 2/32-inch mark, use the penny test as follows:
· Place a penny in a tire tread groove with Lincoln’s head face first in the groove.
· Check if Lincoln’s face on the penny disappears between the grooves.
· If it does, your tread is still above 2/32 inches. If you can see all of Lincoln’s face, it’s time to replace your tire.
· Make sure to repeat with all tires and in various places on each tire.
There are a few other ways for drivers in City of Industry to check tire tread depth, including using a tread depth gauge and tread wear indicator bars
