A basic penny test will tell you how low the treads on your tires are. Once the treads become too low, they lose traction and other problems can manifest. Often, the culprit for low treads is low tire pressure. Over time, treads decrease due to use. However, treads will wear out faster when the tires are not properly inflated.
