When do you need to replace the tyres? Most tyres will last around 15,000 to 20,000* miles although this will vary significantly depending on your driving style and the road conditions. Tyres on your driving wheels will wear out faster than non driven ones especially on a front wheel drive car. Our advice is to inspect your tyres regularly and replace at least in pairs at a 3mm tread depth. If the car is a 4 wheel drive it is advisable to replace all 4 tyres at the same time. *All mileages listed are a guide only.

Did you Know? By law, tyres on cars and light commercial vehicles (up to 3500kgs GWV) must have a tread depth of at least 1.6mm across the centre three-quarters of the tread and around the full circumference. For each illegal tyre you could be fined up to £2,500 and receive 3 points on your driving licence. However, the tyre's grip, especially in the wet, will deteriorate long before you reach the legal minimum and for your safety we recommend that your tyres are changed at, or before, 3mm.
