One of the most dangerous things that can happen when motoring is a tire blowout. The reality is that a majority of tire blowouts can be avoided by taking proper preventative steps. These include regularly inspecting your tires for wear.

The standard test for checking the rate of wear on your tires involves the use of a U.S. penny. The penny test is very easy to perform and is something that you should do regularly. With the penny test, you place Lincoln’s head upside down between the treads. If you can see the top of the former President’s head, the time for a new tire has arrived.
