It's really important to make sure that you have the correct tyres on your vehicle and making sure that you're choosing tyres that are made to a high quality is of high importance. To ensure your tyres are suitable for your vehicle, it's important to make sure that they are maintained at a safe tyre pressure and that the tread depth is suitable. If these are incorrect then you are not sticking to the law and you can actually receive a fine for this. Also, it's dangerous to not have your tyres at the correct pressure and tread depth as this will put your safety at risk. You should check your tyre pressure every two weeks when your tyres are cold and you should take a look at your manufacturers guide to see what your recommended tyre pressure is.
You need to replace your tyres if your tyres are worn down, punctured, damaging, abnormally worn or show signs of ageing. If you are having your tyres repaired, it's important to make sure that the work being done on them is carried out by professionals. Driving your vehicle when your tyres are damaged isn't just dangerous to your vehicle; it can also put your safety in jeopardy.
