How to check a tyres tread depth
Almost all tyres have tread wear indicators, usually six or more small ribs across the bottom of the main tread grooves. When the tread surface is level with these ribs, the tyre needs to be replaced.
Did you know
1.6mm is the legal tread depth.
In an emergency braking situation at 112 kph. A tyre with 1.6mm of tread depth, will take approx. 40 metres further to stop than a tyre with 3mm.
And the car can still be doing 80 kph at the point at which the 3mm tyre had stopped.
