Tyres are a crucial component of your vehicle’s safety and performance.
Tread Depth: The legal minimum tread depth for car tyres is 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre. However, research shows that tyre grip and braking performance significantly decline as the tread depth decreases below 3mm. Maintaining adequate tread depth is essential for optimal traction and safe driving.
Tyre-related Accidents: Nearly 1 in 10 UK road accidents is attributed to tyre-related issues, such as insufficient tread depth, improper inflation, or tyre damage. Regular inspection and maintenance can help prevent accidents caused by tyre failures.
Inflation Pressure: Proper tyre inflation is crucial for safety and efficiency. Underinflated tyres can lead to decreased fuel efficiency, reduced handling, and increased risk of blowouts. On the other hand, overinflated tyres result in a harsher ride, reduced traction, and uneven wear.
Tyre Age: Tyres deteriorate over time, even if they have sufficient tread depth. Tyres older than 10 years are more prone to failure, posing a significant safety risk. Regular inspection, including assessing the age of your tyres, helps identify when they require replacement.
