What are the benefits of replacing car tyres?

It's crucial to replace car tyres for your own safety when they're worn or getting old. This is because, once the tyre tread depth gets below the minimum requirement, your tyre's grip on the road worsens.

This can result in increased braking and stopping distances, which can be dangerous for the driver and passengers. That's why it's important to get new tyres as soon as the tread depth starts to get low.

If your car tyres don’t meet the minimum legal standards for tread depth, your car will fail its MOT and you could risk a fine of up to £2,500 and up to 3 points on your driving license for each tyre below the limit.

The minimum legal tread depth for tyres in the UK is 1.6 mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre. In simple terms, that means if the tyre stands less than 1.6 mm above the central trenches that run across the tyre, it is not considered roadworthy.

A simple test to check your tyre tread is to use a 20p coin. If the outer band of the coin is visible when placed in the trench, then the treads of your tyres are worn below the legal limit and as such need to be replaced to be considered road-legal.


Vauxhall Winter Tyres: Better Traction in Bad Conditions

Summer tyres are designed for use in warmer, less harsh weather. Even though the UK's average temperature from December to February is under 7°C, most people still use summer tyres all year round. With the colder weather setting in, it's the perfect time to make the change.

Genuine Vauxhall Winter Tyres are made for handling harsher conditions, like icy, wet and snowy roads. The grip is greatly increased whilst stopping time is drastically reduced on dangerous surfaces.

So whether you are in the market for budget, mid-range or premium tyres, you will find that Accrington Garages stock a wide variety - from the world’s most renowned tyre manufacturers.
