Tips for checking your Tyres

Tyre Pressure

Under-inflated tyres affect handling and grip, potentially causing unpredictable vehicle behaviour. They also require a bigger force to make them turn, so your car uses more fuel. Keeping your tyres at their manufacturer-recommended pressure will reduce running costs.​

Check Condition

Take a good look around each of the tyres and make sure that there aren’t any cuts, tears or bulges on any of them. Also check for stones and nails in the tyres, as well as any damage to the sidewall.

Tread Depth Test

The 20p test is a simple, quick and easy way of checking the tyre tread of your car's wheels. Just take a 20p coin and insert it into the tread grooves on the tyre. If you can't see the outer band on the coin, your tyres are above the legal limit.

We suggest doing the 20p test around every two weeks and before long journeys
