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.
