  • You must have the correct type and size of tyre for the type of vehicle you are driving

  • Tyres must be inflated to the correct pressure

  • The minimum depth of tread to be withing the law is 1.6 mm across 3/4 of the tread - many manufacturers recommend no less than 3mm as your breaking efficiency will be reduced
