Useful car and tyre information
Some vehicles as standard require different size front tyres to the rear. When buying tyres online, make sure you check each of the tyres you wish to replace individually to ensure compatibility.
By law, a tyre must meet a number of legal requirements to be classed as roadworthy. Minimum tyre tread is the one most people are aware of - but it is important to understand there are other factors that may result in the tyre being classed as illegal. Tyre damage, incompatible tyres, fitting irregularity or lumps may also affect this.
Failure to meet any of these legal requirements may result in the tyre being deemed illegal, and carry 3 penalty points and a £2,500 fine for each tyre.
Looking after your tyres
Check your tyres on a regular basis. Check the tread and inspect all areas of the tyre for any damage you may not have been aware of. Monitoring your tyre pressure and wheel alignment can also help increase the life of your tyre.
Tyres subjected to hard acceleration and breaking and excessive load will naturally wear faster and need to be checked more regularly.
