Tire checks should include:
- Checking the tread depth meets vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
- Checking the tire pressure meets the legal minimum depth.
- Checking the overall condition
At the same time as checking your tire pressure and tread depth, examine the tires for any cuts or bulges, which must be assessed by a professional if found. A bulge in a tire indicates internal structural damage and must be replaced.
The tire must also be replaced if you find any cuts deep enough to reveal the internal structure of the tire.
