When To Change Your Tyres:
The legal tyre tread limit in Great Britain is 1.6mm. To make it easy to check the tyre tread available, tyre manufacturers mould a raised bar called a tyre wear indicator at 1.6mm so, when the surrounding treads are level, you are on the legal limit and the tyres need changing. Also, if there is excessive cracking, this may also indicate the tyres needing to be changed (see tyre age section). If you are in any doubt, please call in for a tyre safety check.
It is always important to maintain the correct tyre pressures as under-inflated tyres will wear on the shoulders and over-inflated tyres will wear out the center part of the tread. There are other reasons why tyres wear unevenly. One of these reasons could be misaligned (tracking) wheels which result in uneven tyre wear.
4-Wheel Laser Alignment
It is important to have your wheel alignment (tracking) checked regularly, as this can prevent tyre wear. One of the most noticeable effects of misalignment is an increase in fuel consumption.
To help identify their age, all tyres display a coded date of manufacture, usually located on the sidewall of the tyre. It is a four-digit number; the first two digits are the week of manufacture and the second two digits are the year of manufacture. All tyres contain anti-oxidising chemicals that actually slow down the ageing rate when the tyre is being used. Tyre ageing appears as small cracks normally in the sidewalls. This is most common on low mileage cars where the tread may still be legal but the sidewalls have cracks.
