How do I Know if my Tyres are Legal?
In the UK the minimum LEGAL tread depth is 1.6mm, however most manufacturers recommend that you change your tyres at 3mm. If you can see your tread indicators then you need to get your tyres changed ASAP
The 20p test is a quick and easy way to check the tyre tread of your vehicle's wheels. Simply take a 20p coin and insert it into the grooves on the tread of the tyre. If you can't see the outer band on the coin, your tyres are above the legal limit.
If you can see the band then your tyres could be unsafe and require professional inspection by a mechanic. It is suggested that drivers should conduct the 20p test when they check their tyre pressures which should be around every two weeks and before long journeys.
