Pennies can even be very useful in case you are unable to decide how to put the gaps between tiles.
5. Tire check:
Just try to put the penny inside the grip and ridges of the tire. If the penny is almost outside and does not go inside at least half, then you should think twice before using that same tire again and better change it with a new one.

Pennies can sometimes be a good support for an unstable table or chair. You can make the furniture piece stable by adding one or more pennies below the short leg for better stability.
