How to Buy Snow Tires
I'm taking a very long trip of about 2,600 miles. My car, a Chrysler 300M, is two years old with the original Michelin tires and mileage of 31,000. I want a hassle free trip. Would it be a waste of money to replace all the tires now for peace of mind? Even if they don't need it? Is there a rule of thumb insofar as the average mileage life of a tire?
Here's a simple tire check. Take a penny, stick in into the treads (head first). If you can see the top of Lincoln's head you need tires.
