At A&A Tyres Cardiff we pride ourselves on encouraging safety by offering free checks on your car tyre tread depth.
Having a car tyre that is below the legal limit tread depth is a serious risk to your safety as well as a potential £2500 fine and 3 points on your Driving Licence, per tyre. The legal limit is 1.6mm of tread depth across the central ¾ of the car tyre all the way round.
If you come and see us we can check your tyre tread depth and will change your tyres when necessary at around 2mm.
All major manufacturers have tread wear indicators on the grooves of their car tyres. You will know it is time to change your tyre whenthis indicator is flush with the main surface of the tyre.
You should check your car tyre pressure every two weeks and before any long trip, to ensure they meet the manufacturer’s recommendations. You will be able to do this using a tyre pressure gauge and your vehicles handbook.
Visually inspect your tyres for cuts, cracks and bulges, as these can lead to slow punctures or blowouts.

There will be ratings on every tyre label so that you can see how well the tyre performs in the rain, the rolling resistance and the noise rating (noise in decibels) so that you can decide whether the tyres will meet your needs.
It is crucial that your tyres have the right amount of tread depth since they are the only part of your vehicle that connects you to the road.
The legal tread depth limit for a tyre is 1.6mm. Keep in mind that the less tread you have on your tyres, the longer your stopping distance will be.
You should check your car's tyres regularly to remain safe on the road since your tyres will wear faster if they have less tread depth
