Why do I need new tyres?

All tyres eventually get worn down by daily driving from A to B. If your travelling regularly or further distances it can mean that your tyres get worn down quicker. When your tyres get worn, it can mean that you are more likely to skid in adverse weather conditions and it can be dangerous to drive in such conditions, impacting your safety.

Tyre tread depth

The legal limit for your tyres tread depth is 1.6mm. Once your tyre tread gets below this depth, it’s really important that you get your tyres replaced to ensure that you are safe on the roads. The tread on your tyre helps to grip on the road and diverts water from beneath your tyres to improve traction. It is important for safety and a legal requirement that your tyres do not exceed this limit.

Other indications of tyre wear

If there are uneven wear patterns on your tyres, it can affect your steering and braking distances. Often city driving can have an impact on this, with lots of roundabouts and turns. Lumps and bumps on your tyres can also be an indicator that you need new tyres, as well as suffering from punctures.
