Minimum tyre tread levels and how to measure them
The legal tyre tread depth for cars in the UK is 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre.
If you want to check yours, you can buy a gauge device. But, if you don’t have time to buy one, simply insert a 20p coin into the lowest tread depth of your tyre. If you can’t see the outer rim around the edge of the coin, your tyre should be safe. If you can see the rim, then your tyre tread is less than 3mm and should be checked by a professional immediately.
If you’re unsure, pop down to our garage in Brownhills and we’ll check your tyres for you.
How to check your tyre pressure
Your vehicle’s correct tyre pressure values are shown inside the driver door or on the inside of your fuel cap.
Remove your tyres dust cover.
Attach the air hose to measure the pressure.
Top up or release air until the pressures are correct for all your wheels.
Tyre pressure readings are most accurate when tyres are cold. If you’re still unsure how to check your tyre pressure, call us now.
