Illegal tyres will make your insurance invalid. Tyres are one of the most important components of a vehicle. The tyre tread area making contact with the road is relatively small - only about the size of the palm of your hand - so if your tyres are worn or damaged it can seriously affect your car's safety and handling. Not only that, if your tyres don't meet legal requirements, you could face a fine of £2,500 per tyre and 3 penalty points on your licence.




Check Your Tyres Regularly

 

Tread Wear - Often tyres have to be replaced long before their specified life has been reached principally because of rapid or uneven tread wear. The most common causes of avoidable tread wear are:

Under Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the edges of the tread.

Over Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the centre of the tread.

Faulty Brakes or Shock Absorbers - Can cause flat bald spots around the tread of the tyre.

Incorrect Wheel Alignment - Will cause rapid wear along the inside or outside edges of the FRONT tyres. If you strike a kerb or hit a pot-hole, the delicate settings of the steering gear geometry are invariably misaligned which will result in this sort of wear. Wear and tear in the steering components can also knock the wheel alignment out of true – so it’s vital that you have the front wheels realigned every 3 months or 3000 miles.

Damage Limitation - Cuts, breaks and abrasions to the tyre casing can penetrate deep into the inner fabric of the tyre and can be extremely dangerous – capable of causing high speed blow-outs. However, penetration of the tread by a nail or shard of glass or metal can often be safely repaired.
