Significance:

Your vehicle’s tires are the only connection between your vehicle and the road. Safe vehicle operation depends on your tires being in good condition. If your tires are neglected, the tread can wear completely away, leaving the tire bald and often exposing the steel cords. Not only is this condition dangerous, it is also unlawful in many states. Tires with an abnormal tread wear pattern can cause the vehicle to shimmy and vibrate, and can adversely affect the manner in which your vehicle performs. A tire with an abnormal tread wear pattern will no longer contact the road the way that it was designed to, and this condition can be dangerous, especially during adverse road conditions.
