Proper Pressure Levels

Recommended Tread Depth
Checking the tyres for proper tread depth is as important as checking your car for its fuel. Tread depth is the outer tyre layer protecting it from external harmful materials. Tread needs to be between 1.6mm to 2.7mm so that your tyre rubber is not affected by sharp materials on the road and is strong enough to roll over them. You can measure the adequate tyre tread depth with the help of the coin. In case you find it under the recommended level you can get it fixed from a nearby garage.
