When to Change a Tyre
Do you believe that your car or van doesn’t handle or grip the road as well as usual in wet weather? Perhaps it takes longer to stop when you apply the brakes. If this is the case it could be a sign that your tyres need replacing.
Tyres wear gradually over time and it can be difficult to notice these changes so we recommend that you have your tyres checked regularly, Autostop car tyres in Warrington can make these checks for you.
About the UK Tyre Law
UK Tyre Law: Tyre Tread and the Law
In the UK the law requires car tyres to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm in a continuous band around the central three-quarters of the tyre. To help you judge how much tread you have on your car tyres, manufacturers often mould tread bars at roughly 1.6mm.
If you can see these bars your tyres are about to become illegal and unsafe. However, for optimum safety, most manufacturers recommend that your tyres be changed at 3mm.
Many manufacturers now include a Tread Wear Indicator (TWI) within the grooves of the tyre tread which becomes more visible as the tyre wears down. Whilst these markings are an indicator, always check the tread depth using a tread depth gauge and check your tyres regularly for bulges or wear.
