Tyres are one of the most critical element of your vehicle and they should be checked on a regular basis (At least once a month) in order to keep you safe on the road.

The legal minimum tread for tyres in the UK is 1.6mm. However, it is recommended that you consider changing the tyre much earlier when the tread reaches 3mm.
Tread grooves on your tyre are there to remove water between the road surface and the tyre, allowing the tyre to grip to the road. Without an adequate channel for the water to escape your safety on the road is significantly reduced.

Checking Safety

Tyres tread checkAll tyres have a simple way of checking if the tread is close to or below the legal minimum tread. Between the tread are wear markers that can be seen in the picture below.

Alternatively, you can use the simple 20p Test. Simply place a 20p coin into the main tread grooves of the tyre. If the outer band of the 20p coin is obscured when inserted your tread is above the legal limit.

If the outer band is visible, then your tyres and below the legal limit and should be changed as soon as possible. The penalty for driving with illegal tyres is a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points per illegal tyre.

A tyre tread depth gauge can also be used for an accurate measurement of the depth to get the best result or a rule. Ensure that you check the tread in 3 different locations around the tyre to ensure wear is even.

Tyre Pressure

Ensuring that your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure is also an important check. A correctly inflated tyre will ensure the wear is even around the tyre.

The pressure should be checked or inflated when the tyre is cold. An incorrect reading will be given if the car has been driven as the pressure will increase when the tyres warm.

If you are unsure of the pressure that should be in your tyres, details of the correct levels can usually be found on the driver’s door pillar. It will also be detailed in the owner’s manual.
