The Law

Tread Depth – the legal limit is 1.6mm of tread depth

across the central ¾ of the tyre all the way round.

Anything less than this seriously compromises your safety and can
earn you a fine of up to £2500 and 3 points on your Driving Licence, per tyre.

All major manufacturers have tread wear indicators
put into the grooves of their tyres, so that when they are flush with the main
surface of the tyre, you know it’s time to change your tyres. We will only
advise you to change your tyre when you actually need to, which is generally
around 2mm.

 

Things you should do

Tyre Pressure – you should check your tyre pressures every
two weeks and before any long trip. Tyre pressures should be checked cold
(tyres not having run for at least 2 hours, or having run for less than 2 miles
at low speed). The correct tyre pressure can be found in the vehicle’s
handbook.

Tyre Condition – You should visually inspect your tyres for
cuts, cracks and bulges, as these can lead to slow punctures or blowouts.
