Keeping an eye on your tyre treads is another of those little fixes that helps look after your car, keep you safe and give you confidence on the road:
Carry out a basic check with a 20p coin, which is over 2mm deep
Place the coin in different sections of the tyre tread
It should be comfortably over minimum legal depth of 1.6mm
You can also use a tread depth gauge
If you're close to 1.6mm, it's time for new tyres!
Look out for cuts or splits too, while carrying out your checks
If you see anything unusual, call a professional
