Ensuring that your tyres are in good condition and above the legal tread-depth limit is an essential part of maintaining your vehicle. Not only do good tyres keep your commercial vehicle safe on the road, they also help it to perform better and increase its efficiency.
The minimum legal tread-depth limit is 1.6mm across the middle 75% of the tyre at any point. Many manufacturers and dealers, however, recommend that tyres are change once the tread-depth reaches 3mm. This is because the rise of aquaplaning is significantly increased on tyres below this level.
With Clark Commercials, finding and purchasing the right type of tyre for your commercial vehicle is now easier than ever. We’ll recommend a selection of products based on your vehicle and preferences – all you have to do is pick the tyres you’d like.
Checking your tyres on a regular basis is important to ensure they're in good condition. Check tyre pressure at least twice a month or before setting off on a long journey. You can find details about the correct pressure in your driver's manual.
You should also check for any damage or unusual wear such as bulges and cuts, as well as checking your tread depth.
