Check Your Tires Using A Quarter!

We’ve found a use for that jar of coins in your kitchen! Just joking, but a quarter is a great consistent way to “just check” your tires for wear without having to use the tire gauge tool that is used in the shop.

Tread depth is typically measured in 1/32″ increments. Using a recent Canadian quarter (the Queen is not wearing a crown) you can quickly and easily check the tread depth yourself.

Using the caribou head (does he have a name?) put him in the tread nose first and if you can see his muzzle it’s time to start looking for new tires. We can help you find the right summer or winter tires, give us a call in parts (250) 758-7742, request a tire quote online or browse our tire selection tool.

Quick and Easy!!
