Automotive Uses for a Penny


The lonely penny has become an unwanted piece of change. There have even been movements to get rid of it all together. It’s probably more expensive to make than its face value brings.
Did you now that a penny can come in handy when you’re concerned about your tires? Insert a penny into the tire's tread groove with Lincoln's head upside down and facing you. If you can see all of Lincoln's head, your tread depth is less than 2/32 inch and it's time to replace your tires.
The professional service techs at Fiesta Motors of Lubbock also keep an eye on tire inflation and rotation schedules. Doing maintenance checks will keep you safer, get the most use out of your tire, and save money at the pump...who doesn’t like that?
At our two buy-here pay-here locations in Lubbock, we have a great selection of used vehicles in our inventory, and they all have safe tires.
