The most commun method is probably the one with the 25 cents. You simply have to place the caribou's nose towards the ground and then insert it between the grooves of the tire. If the Caribou's nose stays visible, the tires can no longer be used. For a more precise measure, it is also possible to evaluate your tire's condition with a deth gauge. For your tires to be safe enough to face the winter roads, their thickness must be around 6/32 of an inch (4.8mm).
In order to prevent the premature wear of your tires, it is important to maintain adequate air pressure at all times. To do so, frequently verify your tire’s pressure or fill them with nitrogen.
