Is Your Car Safe?

If you don’t have a safe and inspected vehicle, you could be driving around in a coffin. Perhaps that’s a grim view of cars, but having the proper tire tread, fluid levels, lighting systems, and more in place can serve as a life-saving measure on the streets of Yorkville, NY.

Tire treads ware out with time due to the friction between the tire and the road. Once the tread depth is 4/32 inch, it a clear indication of a need to replace the tire. Driving on such a tire is illegal. This type of a tire is dangerous to drive on because there is no grip on the road surface.

The standard and safe depth of the tire treads is 10/32 inch. All-terrain and winter tires will have a deeper tread. A vehicle with the 4/32 inch tread depth will take ten times more car lengths to stop than a car with 10/32 inch tread depth tire.
