Spring has officially arrived, but who knows what the great British weather has in store for us over the next few weeks, but one thing is certain, whether its snow, ice or heavy rain, we should always ensure our tyres are safe and legal.
Many of our customers are uncertain about replacing car tyres and are not sure what worn out tyres look like.
Knowing about replacing car tyres is vitally important for road safety.
If you are driving on worn out tyres you are putting yours and other lives at risk.
By law, car tyres must have a tread depth of at least 1.6mm across three quarters of the tread width, around the full circumference.
Finding out if you need car tyre replacement is simple – insert a 20p coin into the main tread grooves of your tyre. If the outer rim of the coin is covered by the tread, this indicates sufficient tread depth to be safe and legal and you can put car tyre replacement on the back burner.
However, if the outer rim of the coin is visible, it is likely you have worn out tyres and you need think about your car tyre replacement.
There is no excuse for driving on worn out tyres, because car tyre replacement can be simple and replacing car tyres does not have to cost a fortune.
