Winter is soon but arriving, we need to check those tyres on the car for safe winter motoring.
Tyres are the only thing that keep the vehicle in contact with the road surface, so you need to make sure they are in good working order
Tyre tread depth is very important. The minimum legal limit is 1.6mm 75% of the tread pattern and there is 3 points on your licence for every illegal tyre found on your vehicle.
When checking your tyres look out for any damage on the side walls including the road wheel itself, especially where the tyre meets the rim.
Make sure you have even tyre wear across the tread pattern if not, this could mean the wheel alignment may be out, or even a mis-shaped tyre.
Correct tyre pressures are also critical to the wear and life of your tyres, check for them in your vehicle handbook.
If you have any doubt pop along to L G Perfect where we will be more than happy to help you check your tyres for the winter months ahead.
Happy and safe motoring !
