Are you driving with balding tires this winter? This is definitely not safe and something that should be taken care of ASAP! So many things can go wrong ranging from blowouts to poor handling and braking at high speeds. These have proven to be fatal.

Not only is driving with bald tires risky, it's hazardous. Bald tires give decreased traction in snow and ice elements. The vehicle will slip and skid.

BaldingĀ  tires can also cause severe braking failures risking harm and danger to everyone in your path including yourself.

How do you know if you have balding tires? Here is a great tip thanks to wheelzine.com:

The tire tread should not be less than 1/16 of an inch.

I have heard there are other way to check your tires such as the Lincoln Penny Test. This is worth Googling for more details on that.

If you find that you must drive with bald tires in the snow for the time being, drive slower, avoid cruise control, and constantly check tire pressure.
