Tyres are one of the most important components of a vehicle. The tyre tread area making contact with the road is relatively small– only about the size of the palm of your hand - so if your tyres are worn or damaged it can seriously affect your car’s safety and handling. Not only that, if your tyres don’t meet legal requirements, you could face a fine of £2,500 per tyre and 3 penalty points on your licence.
That’s why it’s important to check tyre tread depth, general tyre condition and tyre pressure to ensure your tyres are safe for the roads.
Tread depth must be above the legal minimum of 1.6mm throughout a continuous strip in the centre three quarters of the tread and around the entire tyre circumference. At Waterfront Cars , we support the 3mm campaign which recommends motorists replace their tyres when the tread reaches 3mm for utmost safety when driving especially in the wet at high speeds.
