What should I do when checking my tires?

Published 13 July 2016 in

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.
