My tires are starting to burn out at nearly the drop of a hat, so it's time to start looking at tire wear. I've never had to replace tires due to wear before, so this is foreign territory for me. After reading this Ive been looking for wearbars (which i can't find) and did the penny test.
My front tires (front wheel drive car) barely pass the penny test in the deep center ridges of the tire, but when you do the test towards the edge of the tire, they fail miserably.
My rear tires are much better, center tread easily passes the test, and the tread as you get to the outer edge of the tire fails pretty bad.
Am I doing the test right, and is it time to go get some new tires?
