A lot about how a tire performs comes down to its tread. A tire is only as good as the amount of tread it has remaining, and excessively worn or unevenly worn tires can be downright dangerous.
An RMA survey found that more than one in eight vehicles has bald tires too, so it's incredibly important that you pay attention to your tread and replace your tires before an accident happens.
Luckily, it's quick and easy to inspect your tire tread. All you need is a quarter. And when you check your tires for wear, do a quick visual inspection for anything out of the ordinary, like damage or dry rot.
