After driving through Quincy for an extended period of time, your tires will eventually become worn down and will need to be replaced.

When we talk about checking tire tread depth, we’re talking about the vertical measurement between the actual outside rubber of the tire and the depth of the grooves within the tire. Over time, driving on the Hannibal roads will wear down the rubber on your tires, causing the amount of tread depth to decrease. So, the closer the top of the rubber is to the bottom of the groove, the closer your tire is to needing to be replaced. Most tires on new vehicles have a depth of 10/32 or 11/32 of an inch, and you’ll want to have your tires replaced when it reaches about 2/32 of an inch.
Before we go over how to check tire tread depth, let’s talk about how often you should check your tires’ tread depth. It’s recommended that you should check your tire tread depth at least once a month in order to stay on top of your tires’ conditions. As mentioned above, once your tires reach about 2/32 of an inch, then you’ll want to schedule a visit to our service center and have them replaced.
