Tread depth

Check tread depth at regular

Check tread depth at regular intervals.

Tyres should be replaced for safety reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm (4 mm for winter tyres).

The legally permissible minimum tread depth (1.6 mm) has been reached when the tread has worn down as far as one of the tread wear indicators (TWI). Their position is indicated by markings on the sidewall.

If there is more wear at the front than the rear, swap round front wheels and rear wheels. Ensure that the direction of rotation of the wheels is the same as before.

Tyres age, even if they are not used.

We recommend tyre replacement every 6 years.
