As the tire tread wears down, the tire becomes more sus-
ceptible to puncture and failure. An accepted estimate is
that 90% of all tire failures occur during the last 10% of tread
life (90% worn). So it is false economy and unsafe to use
the tires until they are bald.
Remove any imbedded stones or other foreign particles
from the tread.
Visually inspect the tire for cracks and cuts, replacing the
tire in case of damage. Swelling or high spots indicate
internal damage, requiring tire replacement.
