Do you know how to check your tread?

Feeling Autumnal?
 

It’s a good time of year to check your tyres. With the weather getting wetter checking your tyres have the correct tread depth left is always sensible. It’s advisable to do it monthly, especially during autumn and winter.

Unsure?

http://www.tyresafe.org have a great little test to try and all you need is a 20p coin! 20p_check_comparison_opt

Insert the coin into the main part of the tread. If you can’t see the rim of the coin, your tread depth is above the maximum of 3mm. Great! You’re good to go. See the rim? Get it changed!

The legal minimum tread depth is 3mm, anything below could get you a fine of up to £2500 AND 3 points on your license… per tyre. So keeping on top of your tyres is a good idea.
