- Overall condition – Give all tyres a thorough visual inspection. Remove visible stones and other objects from the tread. Cracks in the sidewall may mean the tyres are beginning to deteriorate and should be checked by a professional along with any cuts, cracks or bulges which could signify internal damage.
- Air pressures – specific vehicle pressures can be found in the owner’s manual or use TyreSafe’s unique car and caravan tyre pressure calculators.
- Tread depth – this should be above the legal minimum of 1.6mm across the central ¾ of each tyre’s width and its entire circumference. Use the outer rim of a 20p as a guide to how close a vehicle’s tyres are to this limit.
