WHAT IS CONSIDERED A "LEGAL TYRE"?

Tyre thread is measured on three spots across the width of the tyre to begin with from the sidewall towards inside. Incorrect reading will also indicate different problems if any, on your vehicle's wheels alignment.

The new tyres would have the thread of around 8mm, but the minimum tyre thread is 1.6mm in the centre of the breadth and around the entire circumference. The recommended minimum thread is 3mm, and that is what you should know about it.

Anything bellow those measurements, and you are liable for points and fine on each individual illegal tyre. Such punishment can be severe.

 

  • TYRE SIZES

    They are made up of a number of different numbers and letters. For example tyre size 225/55 R17 82 V is made up of the following information:
