Safety Checks for the
optimum maintenance of your car
Checking your Tyres
The two things to check
for on your tyres is the tread and inflation. The legal minimum
tread depth in the UK is 1.6mm but this is the absolute
minimum and it is recommended that tyres are replaced at about 2mm.
Your tyres should have a tyre wear indicator located along the seam
of the tyre. When the tyre surrounding this nodule approaches the
same level it is recommended that the tyre is replaced. However,
There may be excessive wear on other parts of the tyre that is not
indicated. This is why it is best to take your car to a garage for
this type of check. Most garages offer this service for free (like
us!) so don't hesitate to do so if you are unsure. Don't forget to
get your spare tyre checked also.
Do also check your
tyres regularly for splits and bulges.
