With area snow totals nearing record marks this winter and more on the way, auto experts are sharing important information to keep drivers safe on the roads. Randy Sahs of Sahs Auto Collision in Sturgeon Bay says checking your tire tread is crucial in making sure your car is ready for slippery conditions.
According to TireTrack.com, new tires typically start with at least 10/32 inches of original tread depth. When they fall below 5/32 inches of remaining tread, tires should be replaced when dealing with snow-covered roads. Sahs recommends checking your tire’s air pressure as frequently as well, especially in colder temperatures.
