Your tyres keep your vehicle in contact with the road, so it makes sense to keep them in the best condition.

How do I know what size of tyres I need?

The best (and easiest) place to find out what size tyre you need is on the sidewall of your current tyres. However, be aware some vehicles such as Mercedes & BMW can have different sized tyres on the front and back.

If you’re unsure, pop by and ask one of our technicians to have a look.

What are the minimum tread requirements? And how do I measure this?

The UK’s minimum legal requirement for tyre tread is 1.6mm across your tyre. You can use a gauge to measure this, but a more straightforward method is to use a 20 pence coin.

Simply place the 20p coin into the part of your tyre with the lowest tread. If you can still see the coin’s outer rim, you should get your tyres checked right away.

Driving with tyres lower than the 20p rim test leaves you breaking the law. Don’t get caught out; you’ve a high risk of accidents and fines.

How to check your tyre pressure?

Firstly, find your car’s recommended tyre pressure –  this is usually found inside the driver’s door or your fuel cap.

Remove the dust caps from your wheel’s tyre valve. Use a pressure gauge to press on the valve; this gives you a pressure reading.

Compare your reading to the recommended pressure levels. If you need to re-inflate your tyres, set the pressure on the air machine. Use the air machine to inflate your car’s tyres.
