Tyre Safety

Tyres are one of the most important components of a vehicle. The tyre tread area making contact with the road is relatively small, so if your tyres are worn or damaged it can seriously affect your car’s safety and handling. Not only that, if your tyres don’t meet legal requirements, you could face a fine of £2,500 per tyre and 3 penalty points on your licence.

We strongly recommends that motorists check tyre tread depth, condition and pressure on a monthly basis and before any long journeys. You should also inspect the general condition of your tyre for any sign of bumps, bulges or cuts which could cause a blow out when driving.

Q & A

What is the minimum legal tread depth requirement?

The legal requirement mandates a minimum tread depth of 1.6 millimeters, covering the central ¾ of the tread along the entire circumference of the tire.

For safety precautions, it’s advisable to replace your tyres before reaching the legal threshold. Numerous automobile manufacturers suggest replacement at 3 millimeters, as braking distances notably extend below this depth.

Can you mix different types of tyres?

It is also a legal requirement to ensure that car 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, which must not be mixed on the same axle.

Can run-flat tyres be repaired?

Run flat tyres are equipped with reinforced sidewalls, enabling them to be driven for a short distance even after experiencing a puncture. This feature offers you the ability to reach safety, whether it’s your home or the nearest tire service center.

It’s crucial to note that if you do encounter a puncture with a run flat tire, you should drive cautiously and limit your distance to no more than 50 miles. Additionally, seek assistance from a garage promptly. However, determining whether the structural integrity of a run flat tire has been compromised due to a puncture can be challenging. Extended driving with a punctured tire or exceeding recommended speeds (over 30 mph) can conceal potential damage, thanks to the enhanced strength of run flat tyres.

Consequently, we are unable to perform minor repairs on run flat tyres, as the tire’s safety may have been compromised beyond repair.
