The Importance of Checking Your Tyres Before You Leave
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.
