An obvious sign that your tyres need attention is by the vehicle’s performance. For example: if the car doesn’t handle well in poor weather, takes longer to stop when braking and more difficult to steer – then you should get them checked as soon as possible.
The legal requirement for tyres in the UK is to have a minimum tread of 1.6mm in a continuous band around the central three-quarters of the tyre.
If you have the least amount of tread on your tyre, less than 2mm, the more your vehicle is at risk from skidding in poor weather and failing at a crucial moment. This could cause or contribute to an accident.
Illegal, worn and defective tyres can put the driver at risk of a potential accident. For example:
The inner and outer sides of the tyres should also be inspected to look for signs of any bulges, cuts and cracks.
Motorists can be fined up to £2,500 and three penalty points on your licence for each illegal tyre discovered on your vehicle. Your insurance is also invalid if you have an accident when driving with worn out, illegal tyres.

Maintaining the correct tyre pressure can help extend the life span of your tyre, improve safety and increase fuel efficiency.
Otherwise, an underinflated or overinflated tyre will cause damage to the tread, and become defective more quickly.
You can see if the tyre pressure is correct or not by inspecting the tyre. The tyre should be evenly worn cross the surface, which shows that it is inflated to the correct pressure level.
Recognisable signs for an overinflated tyre is that it will wear out quickly in the middle. An underinflated tyre will show more wear on the outer edges of the tyre.
Not maintaining the correct tyre pressure will reduce your vehicle’s handling performance. The tyre will wear out 30% faster than if it was inflated to the correct level.
Your Vehicle Manual will give you the correct tyre pressure and our trained experts at DM Tyres are on hand to assess the condition of your tyres.
It is an offence to fit a spare tyre that is not roadworthy. Motorists can be fined up to £2,500 and three penalty points on their licence for each illegal tyre fitted to your vehicle so it is worth your while to check!
