UK law requires that your vehicle is fitted with the correct type and size of tyre for the vehicle type you are driving and for the purpose it is being used. This means fitting the right tyres and for safety ensuring that they are inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure.


The legal limit for minimum depth of the tread on your tyres is 1.6 millimetres, across the central ¾ of the tread around the complete circumference of the tyre.


For safety reasons it is recommended that you replace your tyres before the legal limit is reached. Many vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing at 3 millimetres
Often tyres need to be replaced before their specified life has been reached mainly because of rapid or uneven tread wear. The most common causes of avoidable tread wear are:


•    Under-Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the edges of the tread.
•    Over-Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the centre of the tread.
•    Faulty brakes or shock absorbers - Can cause flat spots around the tread of the tyre.
•    Incorrect wheel alignment (tracking) - can cause rapid wear along the inside or outside edges of the FRONT tyres. If you strike a kerb or hit a pothole - the delicate settings of the steering geometry may become misaligned resulting in uneven wear.

 

The more worn a tyre is, the longer it takes to stop. Don't chance it, get your tyres checked regularly.
