Helpful information on your tyres

What is legal?
It is illegal to have a tyre on the road if the grooves of the tread pattern of every tyre fitted to the wheel of the vehicle do not have a tread depth of at least 1.6mm throughout a continuous band comprising the central three-quarters of the breadth of the tread and around the entire outer circumference of the tyre. This applies to tyres on cars, light vans (not exceeding 3,500kg gross weight) and light trailers.

If your tyre has a cut or break in the rubber in excess of 25mm or 10% of the section width in length or the tyre has a lump or bulge you will need to get this checked out immediately. 

Could lead to prosecution, a heavy fine and a driving licence penalty. This will lead to failure in a legal inspection. Undermines the safety of all road users. Legal requirements – care and condition. It is a legal requirement to keep tyres in good condition.
