What Is The Law On Tyres?

You need good tyres to drive safely. They affect the steering, braking and acceleration of your vehicle.

Faulty tyres work less efficiently and don’t last as long; they could also mean a heavy fine and penalty points on your licence.

The Law

It’s against the law to have:

  • Car tyres with tread worn to below 1.6mm;
  • A mix of radial and cross ply tyres;
  • Over or under-inflated tyres;
  • Tyres with cuts, lumps, bulges or tears;
  • The wrong sort of tyre fitted to a vehicle or trailer.

Checking Tyre Pressures

Look in your handbook or consult us for the recommended pressures for your vehicle.

You should check the pressure at least every two weeks, and only when the tyres are cold. Even a short trip to the local garage will warm up the tyre and raise the pressure.

Safety Standards

All new tyres must meet European standards for load/speed performance, shown by an ‘E’ or ‘e’ mark on the sidewall.

Checking Tread Depth

Most tyres have tread wear indicators, usually six or more small ribs across the bottom of the main tread grooves. When the tread surface is level with these ribs, the tyre needs to be replaced.

What Spec Is My Tyre?

Tyre-wall markings

Remember the tyres that are fitted to your car may not actually be the correct ones for your vehicle.

If in doubt call NE Tyres on 01726 814400 who can easily check and advise on the recommended ones.
