Autumn Tyre Safety Awareness

At Land Tyre Service, we are encouraging and urging our customers, both old and new, to check the tread depth on their tyres to ensure they stay safe on the roads.  Adequate tread depth is essential for grip in wet conditions. Motorists who fail to ensure their tyres have enough tread are not only potentially risking their own life but also that of other road users.

Your tyres are the only point of contact your vehicle has with the road.

That’s why it’s vitally important that you should get in to a habit of checking all four tyres regularly for not only the tread depth, but the correct tyre pressure and their general condition.  UK law currently requires at least 1.6mm of tread across the central ¾’s of the tyre, around its entire circumference. The importance of this measurement Is that this tread grooves help to remove water from the road surface and maintain good levels of grip. Drivers with insufficient tread depth face longer stopping distances, reduced grip and an increased risk of aquaplaning. They also face the possibility of three penalty points and a fine of up to £2,500 for each illegal tyre…

Making sure your tyres are safe and legal only takes a few minutes and is FREE!  Drop in for your FREE tyre health safety check – no appointment necessary.
