How are your tires? Try this easy trick to find out! By Product Expert | Posted in Vehicle Service on Thursday, March 27th, 2014 at 10:57 am Penny Tire Test. Abraham Lincoln was a smart guy and a great leader, and much of his wisdom still resonates with people living today.
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.
