UK motorist are legally obligated to replace tyres before their tread depth wears below the 1.6mm mark. Driving on tyres with less depth means you’re liable to being assessed a hefty fine and penalty points on your licence. More importantly, it’s dangerous. Having a healthy amount of tread on your tyres ensures you have enough time to stop in an emergency situation. Most experts recommend motorists replace their tyres before they hit the legal minimum tread, at around the 2mm mark. This is because while well-worn tyres might suffice during dry spells, they might struggle to grip the road in wet weather.

So however much you’re looking to spend, and whatever your personal requirements are, we’ll have the right tyres for you.
