Tyres are the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road, so it's vital they're well maintained. Poor tyres impact performance, increase fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, and can quickly become unsafe.
Tyres - Car Tyres
You should not underestimate the importance of good tyres. They are the only contact between you and the road. So, make sure you keep them in top-notch condition and seek advice if you are not sure.

Tyres - Van Tyres
Tyres on vans and light commercial vehicles (LCVs) lead a hard life, carrying loads and doing multiple drops. As a critical vehicle component, it’s important to carry out regular checks on vans of all ages to make sure your tyres are still safe and legal.
Tyres - Caravan Tyres
Getting your caravan or motorhome ready for a long journey is an important step for your enjoyment and safety. Tyres are the only part of the caravan which are in contact with the road surface. Safety in acceleration, braking, steering and cornering all rely on the tyres’ relatively small contact area with the road surface.
Tyres - Trailer Tyres
Car and trailer tyres must have at least 1.6mm of tread over the central 75% of their width for their entire circumference, although a tyre with under 3mm offers little grip in the wet. Tyres must be free from deep cuts and bulges (which indicate they are breaking up) and it is illegal to use cross-ply and radial tyres on the same axle.
