What is the legal tire tread depth in New York?
The minimum tread depth in New York is 2/32". U.S.- and European-manufactured tires have wear bars or tread wear indicators molded into the tread. There are portions of the tire that are raised 2/32". When the tread wears down so the tires are no longer legal, these portions will form a smooth bar across the tire in several places.
