Why do I need to get Tread Depth checked?
It's crucial that your tyres are in good condition as they impact on your steering, acceleration, handling, and braking. They are your only contact point with the road!
Tread depth measures how worn your tyres are. Worn or bald tyres with poor tread depth will greatly affect the overall braking and cornering performance of your vehicle, putting you, your passengers and other road users at risk.
Regularly check your tyres to make sure there is still plenty of tread. While the minimum legal depth is 1.5mm, Beaurepaires recommends that you replace your tyres when the tread depth reaches 3mm. Even from 3mm tread depth, worn tyres can be more dangerous on wet roads. The more tread you have, the safer you will be, thanks to having better grip.
Why do I need to get Tyre Pressure checked?
It's normal for tyres to lose pressure gradually over time, but that means it's essential to check them regularly. Tyres which are under-inflated (or over-inflated) wear out more quickly and don't handle as well when you're driving.
Maintaining the correct tyre pressure will help you use less fuel and be safer on the road – and your tyres will last longer.
But I passed my WOF!
Now that recent model cars only need their warrant of fitness (WOF) renewed once a year, our team report that they're seeing more cars with dangerously worn or bald tyres needing replacement.
Your car can pass its WOF, but then have worn tyres within a matter of weeks.
We recommend that you get a FREE 4 Point Safety Check every three months, to ensure that your tyres are still safe, legal, and in road-worthy condition.
