What Does a Road Legal Tyre Look Like?

UK law stipulates that all vehicles must be fitted with tyres of the correct size and type, inflated to the correct pressure. As the named owner, it is your responsibility to ensure they meet the minimum tread depth of 1.6mm across the centre three-quarters of the tyre, all the way around. If a tyre doesn’t meet the requirements, your car will instantly fail its MOT.

What are the Consequences of Ignoring a Tyre Replacement in Portsmouth?

Driving with damaged or excessively worn tyres not only risks invalidating your insurance policy earning you a large fine and penalty points on your driving licence. Not only that, but it puts lives in danger too.

New tyres are the best deterrent against hydroplaning. A tread pattern that channels water out from between the tyre and the road is the most effective means of stopping hydroplaning. According to test results, hydroplaning starts at 47 mph when cornering on worn out tyres vs 60 mph for brand new tyres. Proper tread and tyre pressure are vital to the functionality of tyres. When tyres wear out, the tyre’s wet grip and aquaplaning properties are at their highest risk, increasing your chances of an accident.

What’s more, if your tyres aren’t inflated to the correct pressure, you may struggle to control the car under extreme situations. This also allows for the steering to pull more to the side. Insufficient tyre pressure may even cause a blowout. As of 1 November 2012, all passenger tyres sold in the European Union must be labelled with an official EU tyre label. This label contains information about three important criteria that form the basis for evaluating tyre performance: wet grip, fuel efficiency and exterior noise.
