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 car safe on the road, they also help it to perform better and increase the cars efficiency.
The minimum legal tread-depth limit is 1.6mm across the middle 75% of the tyre at any point. We 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.
