Correct tyres are essential for getting the best out of your vehicle. What’s more, they are arguably the most important safety feature.

Over 3.5 million British motorists are driving on illegal tyres and, as the sole point of contact between your car and the road, it is important to check your tyres regularly.

Even though the legal limit for your tread depth is 1.6mm, experts recommend that you change your tyres when the tread reaches 3mm. There is an 8m difference in stopping distance when travelling at 50mph in wet conditions between tyres with a 3mm tread and 1.6mm.
