Your tyres are probably one of the most important features when it comes to road safety. As the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road, you need to make sure that you have the correct tyres fitted and that they adhere to the legal requirements necessary. After all, the grip and performance of your tyres are integral to your safety when out on the road, so insufficient tyre tread could well compromise the performance of your vehicle.
The legal limit for minimum depth of the tread on your tyres is 1.6 millimetres, across the central ¾ of the tread around the complete circumference of the tyre.
It is important to replace your tyres before the legal limit is reached, many vehicle manufactures will advice you to replace your tyres when they are 3 millimetres, as the more your tyre treads drops the more your braking distance increases.
At Snows Fiat in Portsmouth, Sarisbury Green, Southampton and on the Isle of Wight, we aim to help you find replacement tyres that are fully compatible with your vehicle and represent fantastic value for money. You can also choose from used Fiat tyres, which are available at a more affordable price than brand new tyres.
