Colder temperatures can affect your tires inflation, causing your tires to lose a pound or two of air per month. Proper inflation in your tires helps your Volvo handle better, last longer, as well as allowing you to maximize your fuel efficiency.

The Penny Test

When your tires are worn tires the grooves are not deep enough to channel water out from wet roads and you're at risk of hydroplaning. Driving with worn tires also puts you at risk for a tire-blowout, so be sure to check your tires regularly.

Here is how to check your tires treads, using the Penny Test:

  1. Place a penny between the tread on your Volvo's tire.
  2. Turn the penny so that Lincoln’s head points down into the tread.
  3. If the top of Lincoln's head disappears between the treads, it means your tread is still above the suggested 2/32”. If Lincoln's entire head is visible, it may be time to replace your tire(s) to ensure your receiving optimum performance from your tire.
  4. Be sure to check each tire individually.
