It is recommended to check the condition of your tyres regularly - at least once a fortnight. Did you know that you’re not insured when driving on illegal tyres? If you are involved in a mishap and it turns out that you have been driving around on tyres with a tread depth lower than 1.6mm (legal limit in the United Kingdom) you could find yourself forking out a lot of money on repairs and fines.
TyreSafe.org has devised a five point tyre check you need to complete:
- Check overall condition of tyres, including inner and outer sidewalls.
- Check tyre tread depth.
- Check all tyre pressures.
- Check signs of irregular wear.
- Check and examine the spare tyre.
