My Ride: 2007 Allure
Tread on summer tires

Hi, everyone. I am new to the forum. I am a widow who drives an '07 Allure. I want to change from winter to summer tires and am wondering if someone could give me a simple way to see if I have enough tread on my summer tires for another year. They are original tires, I have about 40,000 km on the car and for the last two years have had winter tread tires on from Oct. to end of April. Can someone please give me a simple way to check. I'm sure if I go to a dealer they will tell me I need new tires!!

^+1, that link should tell you if you can use your tires another year.

Or you can take a picture of your tire with the penny on it (such as in the article) and we can help you determine if its safe to use or not.

Anyone know why Buick changed the LaCrosse to Allure in Canada?
