Tyres are the only thing keeping you and your vehicle stuck to the road. It is important that you keep an eye on your tyres and replace them when the tread wears down. The minimum legal tread depth in the UK is 1.6mm. If your tyre tread depth is below this then your tryes are unsafe, will have reduced grip and will need replacing by law. Tyres with tread below the legal limit will fail an MOT test.

Keeping your tyres inflated at the correct pressues is vital to ensure your tyres wear evenly and you get the maximum amount of life from them.

You should also check your tyres for foreign objects and damage to the walls which could cause punctures. If you spot any damage to your tyres you should seek advice and get them replaced immediately to ensure you stay safe on the road.

CB AutoServices can check the condition of your tyres, check your tyre pressues and replace your tyres if required. It is generally good practice to tyres replaces in pairs (i.e. both fronts or both rears) to ensure maximum grip.

How can I check my tyre tread depth?

There are couple of ways to check the tread depth of your tyres.

  • You can get a tyre tread depth gauge which can measure the amount of tread remaining.
  • Tyres have small nibs within the grooves in the tread. You can feel with your finger at multiple points around the tyre and if the tyre tread is worn down and flush with these points then they are at the legal limit and need replacing.

How do I know the correct pressure for my tyres?

Many car manufacturers print the recommended tyre pressues on a sticker situated inside either the front driver or passenger side doors. You vehicle owners manual should also contain the recommended tyre pressues.
