Question Tire Thread Dept Quick Question

Question. How do you write down the tire thread dept. using the penny test ?

I know that if you put a penny in the groove and can see the top of Abeís head itís past 3/32 secís of thread. The reason I ask is because, I just got a new tire and it got a screw in it. My insurance needs me to tell them the depth. I took a picture of the penny in the groove on the tire. The mechanics wanted nothing to do with my insurance people so they wonít talk to me. But how do I write it. His head almost disappears in the groove so how many would that be? Exp: ?? 1/32, 5/32, 30/32

That's what I was thinking. Claimin it on insurance, deductible is usually 500 bucks, it'll be cheaper to just buy a new tire. Unless you wrecked your bike, but I hope you didn't.

I have tire insurance. Its for like flats, punctures, and blow outs, stuff like that. $300 for like 4 years or something. So far i've gone threw 9 back tires and 1 fron tire. The dealership use to handle it for me but now i have to deal with the company. there cool and all but i just need to know how to get the depth. the only down side is that every shop i got to would deal with tire insurance companies. i just went and did the penny trick and its in the middle of abes fordead above his nose. so is that like 8/32. I'm going to walmart tonight. Thanks yall!
