Many countries stipulate the minimum tread depth allowed by law: while the minimum in Europe is 1.6 mm, experts recommend an ideal summer tyre tread depth of up to 3 mm. It is important to check the tread depth at the edges of the tyre too, and not just in the middle. If the tread depth is too shallow, or if the tyres are showing uneven wear, you should change them.
Tyres have to be able to withstand a lot. For this reason you should always check your tyres for cracks, bulges, and porous patches before fitting them to your car. If you see any damage on the tyres, they don’t belong on a car. The age of the tyre is also important: tyres last for a maximum of eight years before their grip decreases significantly, even if they have low mileage.
If you think about the fact that each tyre has to carry a quarter of your car’s weight, it becomes clear how important the correct air pressure is. If the tyre’s air pressure is too low, this will affect driving stability. Not only does this increase fuel consumption, it is also an extreme safety risk. You can find the right tyre pressures for your car in the operating instructions, and in many vehicles they are also often displayed on the fuel tank cover or on the door frame.
