Tyres are one of the most important and most overlooked parts on a modern-day vehicle.
They are the main contact your vehicle has with the road and many people fail to realise that tyres require maintenance on a regular basis for them to continue operating at their peak.
When it comes to tyre safety, your tyre pressure and overall condition are vital, but by far the most
important factor is your tyre tread depth. By law, all car tyres must have a minimum continuous tread depth of 1.6mm.
As your tyres wear down, your grip on the road reduces, and your stopping distance increases. A car with 1.6mm treads can take an extra two car lengths to stop at 50mph in wet weather, compared to one with 3mm tread. This difference in stopping distance increases the likelihood of an accident.
Not too sure about your tyres condition, our technicians help you with that.
