Tire Tread in Centreville - What Does it Do?

The traction is what "holds" your Honda on the roads in Manassas, especially when driving in non-perfect conditions like rain, slush, and snow. Tire tread directs water and slush from between your tire and Centreville roads and also helps create edges to grip snow. Tire tread plays a huge role in how quickly your Honda can stop when the brakes are applied. 2/32" might be used as a general rule for new tire replacement, but Joyce Koons Honda Service thinks this guideline could be cutting it too close for Virginia drivers.

Test Your Honda Tires in Chantilly for Tread

A lot of Manassas residents abide by the Penny Test. It's easy: place a Lincoln penny into the tread groove of your worn tire. If you can't see all of Lincoln's head, then the tire tread should be fine. Unfortunately, this isn't a very accurate way to test whether or not your Honda tire tread is at a safe level, and could result in some dangerous trips driving around Chantilly. The idea behind the Penny Test is that the performance or your Honda doesn't really go down in poor driving conditions (rain, slush and snow) until the tire tread wears down to around 2/32" (which is where you will see all of Lincoln's head). This idea is simply wrong. Many states consider 2/32" of tread the level at which a tire's tread is worn out. However, 4/32" or more is needed to maintain good and safe traction on your Chantilly tires .
Manassas Honda Has Uneven Tire Tread?

The penny test is a good way to check if your Manassas tires are wearing evenly. If they aren't, you may need a wheel alignment or tire rotation from Joyce Koons Honda Service in Virginia. When this happens, our service department can help you understand why this is happening, and how you can keep it from continuing. For example, if your Manassas tire tread is worn down mainly in the middle of the tire, you may have been driving with an over-inflated tire around Fairfax.
