Tires are an important part of a vehicle's safety. Different states also have different requirements for tires during different times of the year. When replacing tires, it's our goal to provide options that will ensure your vehicle is in compliance all year around.
By federal regulation and most marketplace policies, all tires on vehicles must have a tread depth of 4/32nds or more. Once a vehicle has any tires that go below 4/32, we will require that the vehicle's tires be replaced immediately and that the vehicle be grounded until they're replaced.
We perform regular tread depth checks to help ensure we keep on top of tire replacements and can have them done before they tires become unsafe.
Colorado has the following key requirements between September and May each year:
- All tires must have tread of no less than 1/8 inch (2/32nds)
- 2-Wheel-Drive vehicles must have snow tires or tires with the M+S designation
