What should I do when checking my tyres?

Published 13 July 2016 in

Tyre checks should include:

  • Checking the tread depth meet vehicle manufactures’ recommendations.
  • Checking the tyre pressure meet the legal minimum depth.
  • Checking the overall condition

At the same time as checking your tyre pressure and tread depth, examine the tyres for any cuts or bulges which must be assessed by a professional if found – a bulge in a tyre indicates internal structural damage and must be replaced.

The tyre must also be replaced if you find any cuts deep enough to reveal the internal structure of the tyre.
