Tires are worn out and unsafe with only 2/32" of tread. This does not mean to wait until that long. Tires should be replaced when they get below 4/32". You can check the depth of your tire tread by using what is in your pocket. With just a quarter and a penny you can determine the current depth of your tires. The measurement from the edge of a quarter and the top of George Washington's head is 4/32". Be sure that you check all treads on the tire. The wear of the tire could be uneven and although one measurement could be over 4/32" there may be zero tread on either an inside or outside edge. So no matter what kind of car you are driving, from a Honda, Toyota, Kia or Hyundai, tire measurements are all the same. Know when yours are unsafe.
