Are my tires too worn?

Tread wear indicators (“wear bars”) are located at the base of the main grooves and are equally spaced around the tire. The tread wear indicators, which look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread, will appear on the tire when that point of wear is reached. When you see these wear bars, the tire is worn out and it’s time to replace the tire. Always remove tires from service when they reach a remaining tread depth of two thirty-seconds of an inch (2/32″).

Another easy way to check is to do the penny test. Take a penny and place it with Lincoln’s head down in the tread groove. If none of Lincoln’s head is covered by the tread, then it is time to replace your tires.
