Your tyres are the only part of your vehicle that grip the road, so it's crucial to make sure your tyres meet the necessary safety requirements.
Checking your tread depth is simple and straight forward - it only takes a few minutes and all you need is a 20p coin.
Watch our Tread Depth video guide or use our step by step guide below on how to check whether your tyres meet the legal requirements.
Tyres have wear indicator bars: Raised areas at the base of the tread, serve as a visual warning that the tyre is near to or at the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6mm.
It is recommended that tyres are replaced when 3mm of tread remains. The less tread there is, the greater the stopping distance in the wet, and the greater the risk of skidding.
Worn tyres will aquaplane more easily, the limited tread depth being unable to disperse sufficient water to maintain contact with the road surface.
