What is a Safe Tire Tread Depth?
A safe tire tread depth depends on the type of tire. New tires typically have tread depths between 10/32 or 11/32 of an inch. However, heavy-duty tires used for off-roading around Denver or used during winter driving conditions have much deeper tread grooves to provide better traction. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), a safe tire tread depth is typically about 2/32 of an inch or more. If your tires are less than that, you need a new set of tires. Contact the parts department or service center at Planet Honda to immediately order your new tires.
