What are the Minimum UK Tyre Tread Depths??
For cars and vans with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) up to 3500kg, the legal minimum tread depth on your tyres must be no less than 1.6mm, across the central 3/4 of the breadth of the tread, in a continuous band around the entire circumference of the tyre.
You should make sure your vehicle is fitted with the correct type and size of tyre for the purpose it is being used. Check this image for an interpretation of the markings
Under or over inflated tyres can cause excessive wear and poor handling characteristics. Your tyre pressures should be checked at least every 2 weeks and always prior to embarking on long journeys. The manufacturers information on the correct pressures is usually on a plate on the drivers door pillar or inside the filler flap.
Currently the penalty for tyres worn below the legal minimum limit is three penalty points and a maximum of £2500 in fines per tyre!
Along with most tyre manufacturers and ROSPA, Pewsey Tyre and Auto centre Ltd recommend that you change your tyres at 3mm depth as a tyre dramatically loses its effectiveness in the wet when below 3mm of remaining depth, with a typical stopping distance being increased by up to 8m or around 2 car lengths.
