    Stick a penny upside down into the treads. If part of lincolns head gets covered you're good.

    It's on my rental. 27k miles on the car and they already look like that. This is what it looked like when new

    Stop being such a tightwad, if you spent more than $19 a day on a rental you wouldn't have these problems.

    You're welcome. :hippie:

    Got a rental the other day and the bumper was falling off.

    "You might want to take a look at this."

    "It's fine. Just make a note of it on the form."

    :wtf:

    I would. Those don't look good no matter what the wear indicator says.

    The eyeglass holder in the overhead console kept flopping open, blocking the rearview mirror. I duct-taped it shut.

    I have a friend that just bought a car from a car rental company.

    I so badly wanted to tell her what a bad idea it was.

    But didn't.
