Do you recommend fitting winter tyres and if so, should I keep them on all year?

Winter tyres are not just for snow and icy conditions,they also provide higher levels of road safety on cold, damp road surfaces too. 


We will be happy to discuss the pro's and con's of fitting winter tyres, just contact one of our technicians for advice.


However we do not suggest that you keep them on your vehicle all the time, as they will wear too quickly.

What is the minimum legal tread depth on a tyre?

Cars, light vans and light trailers MUST have a tread depth of at least 1.6 mm across the central three-quarters of the breadth of the tread and around the entire circumference.


Tyres MUST be correctly inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s specification for the load being carried.


Always refer to the vehicle’s handbook or data.


Tyres should also be free from certain cuts and other defects.
