The Importance of Checking Your Tyres Before You Leave

/ October 7, 2017/ Business Travel, Travel Arrangements

One major problem which can happen if you do not regularly check the tyres on your vehicle is that you might experience a puncture or blowout.  This can be really scary when it happens, especially if you are driving fast on a motorway!

The best way to check your tyres is to inspect the outside of your tyres before you drive each day – check for any obvious wear or perishing such as cracks, bulges or uneven patches.  If you spot any, it is best to change your tyre before doing a long journey!

Tyres should have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm in the UK which can often be indicated by a tread depth indicator on the tyre, a little groove which will line up once the tread reaches a certain level.
