Renault Tyre Maintenance
Tyre maintenance is an important part of keeping your car functioning and road worthy. It is a legal requirement to have at least 1.6mm tread across the central 3/4 of the tyre - your vehicle will not pass its MOT with below this amount.
Check your tyre pressures regularly. Tyres should have the correct pressure for the load of the vehicle, expected road conditions and the distance you plan to travel at a minimum. Your car manual will state the necessary tyre pressure or location on the vehicle to find the correct pressure.
Look for tyre wear and tread: the location of excessive wear and tear on a tyre often tells you whether your tyres are under/over inflated, if the alignment of the wheels are correct or if the tyre has been damaged/reached the end of its life.
A regular check of your tyres can help you to avoid 3 penalty points and £2,500 in fines (per tyre) for having tyres worn beyond the legal minimum limit on your vehicle.
For safety reasons it is recommended that you replace your tyres before the legal limit is reached. Many vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing at 3 millimetres.
When you think that your tyres are the only point of contact your vehicle has with the road you can appreciate why it is vitally important that you select the right tyre type for the vehicle you are driving and for the purpose it is being used.
