Tyres are the only point of contact with the road surface, therefore they should be checked regularly. Worn or incorrectly inflated tyres can be dangerous and cause serious accidents.
✔ Low tread depths and incorrectly inflated tyres reduce the effectiveness of braking, steering and acceleration
✔ A tyres’s performance – particularly in wet conditions deteriorates dramatically once it gets below 2mm
✔ Low tyre pressures can reduce your vehicles fuel economy, braking and handling performance as well as leading to premature wear
If your tyres are unevenly worn across the surface, this could be a sign of over/under inflation. However, it is likely to be the result of incorrect wheel alignment often caused by pot holes and kerb impact. Regular wheel alignment will ensure your tyres do not wear prematurely.
The current British legal limit for car tyre tread depth is 1.6mm (across 75% of the tyre).
