Check Tread Depth 

Although most modern tires come with tire wear indicators, you can always use the quarter test to check the tread depth of your tire. According to the rulebook, tread depths are to be maintained by every car owner at 12/32” for lightweight vehicles and 15/32” for heavy vehicles. If you hold a quarter in the groove of the tread and you can see the whole of the President’s head, then it is time to change your tires. At this stage, you will also be able to notice some more visible indicators like bulges, cracks, or blisters on the tires as well.
