All car tyres are legally required to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm. The easy way to check your tyre tread depth is to use a tread depth gauge. This handy gadget can be kept in your glovebox, where it’ll be easy to find. Make sure you check the tread depth in three different places on each tyre, as tyres often don’t wear evenly. You can also check the tread wear indicators found between the grooves of the tread: although these aren’t super accurate, they’ll give you an idea of how your tyres are wearing. Alternatively we can check your tyres for you.
Underinflated tyres can lead to overheating, poor handling and even – in extreme cases – a blowout. Make a note to regularly check that your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure. If you don’t know the magic number, your vehicle handbook will give you a list of the correct tyre pressures at laden and unladen weights.
