The effects of low tyre tread
The lower your tread depth, the lower your tyre's grip on the road, which can increase braking distances and affect the handling and performance of your vehicle.
TyresOnTheDrive recommends changing your tyres once your tread depth reaches 3mm, despite the legal minimum being 1.6mm. Why? Because that extra 1.4mm could reduce your stopping distance by the length of 2 cars*.
The results speak for themselves…
*When travelling on a wet surface at 50mph.
