UK law requires that your vehicle be fitted with the correct type and size of tyres for the vehicle type you are driving and for the purpose it is being used. This means fitting the right tyres, and for safety ensuring that they are inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure.
It is a legal requirement to have a tyre tread of at least 1.6mm across the central 3/4 of the tyre - your vehicle will not pass its MOT if it is below this amount.
For safety reasons it is recommended that you replace your tyres before the legal limit is reached. Leading motoring organisations recommend 2mm and many vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing at 3mm.
A regular check of your tyres can help you to avoid up to 3 penalty points and £2500 in fines (per tyre) for having tyres worn beyond the legal minimum limit fitted to your vehicle.
You should always check your tyre pressures regularly too. Tyres should have the correct pressure according to the distance you plan to travel and expected load of the car. Your car manual will state the necessary tyre pressure. Feel free to give us a call or pop by should you need any assistance.
It is also a legal requirement to ensure that tyres of different construction types are not fitted to opposite sides of the same axle. The two main tyre types are radial and cross-ply, and these must not be mixed on the same axle.
Depending on your vehicle type and manufacturer recommendations; mixing brands and patterns of the same construction type is permissible. Check your vehicles handbook for tyre specifications and options.
