1.       Check those tread depths

“When your tyres lose grip, you lose everything. Check yours regularly”, The Road Safety Authority Ireland reminds us often to take care of our tyres. Your tyres are the only part of your car in contact with the road so its imperative that your tyres are in good condition. By having good tyres means that your is less likely to contribute to a crash with your car.

How to check the tread depths?

Use a €1 coin. Simply place the coin into the tyre grooves. If you can see the gold rim it means your tread depth is less than 3mm. That’s when you should consider replacing your tyres.

If you need help, contact our qualified car mechanics regardless of your location. We have over 16 years of experience fitting tyres and servicing cars.
