Tyres do so much more than meet the road. As the only point of contact between you and the road, tyres play a crucial safety role for you, your passengers, and other road users. A few aspects that could threaten your safety include incorrectly sized tyres, improper tyre inflation, and wear or defects.
Here are some of the risks of neglecting your tyres:
The treads on tyres should let water flow through and away from its surface, making sure the vehicle remains in contact with the road. Shallow or worn treads create a layer of water on which your tyres slip and can cause you to lose control of your car. We recommend the legal minimum remaining tread depth of 1.6mm to keep everyone safe.
