Checking your tyre tread levels

The legal tyre tread depth for cars in the UK is 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre.

You can check yours with a gauge device or by placing a 20p coin into the lowest tread.

If you can’t see the outer rim of the coin, it meets minimum standards.

If you can see the rim,  your tyre should be checked by Roade Main Garage immediately.

Tyres Northampton

Recommended tyre tread levels

The tyre and safety experts at MIRA & RAC believe the 1.6mm legal minimum is insufficient to guarantee safety – they recommend a minimum tread depth of 3mm for tyre replacement.

Why? Deeper tread means your tyres work better, improving grip and stopping your vehicle more quickly in dry and wet conditions. Don’t put you, your passengers or other road users at risk.

Roade Main Garage can help with tyres in Northampton.

Can you fit tyres while I wait?

Yes, please call us to arrange an appointment for tyre fitting in Northampton.

How to check your tyre pressure?

To check your tyre pressure, remove the screw caps from the tyre valve and press a tyre pressure gauge onto the end of it.

If it shows poor pressure, add some air until it is at the recommended level for your vehicle. If it’s too high, let the air out of your tyre until it falls within the recommended level. 

Unsure about your tyre pressure? Give us a call.

Wheel alignment

Few people think of it when considering their vehicle, however, wheel alignment is critical to the safety of your vehicle. 

Steering accuracy, tyre wear and fuel consumption are all affected by your wheel alignment. So, it’s essential that it’s kept in optimal shape. 

If you’re having issues with your wheel alignment, come and see us today.

    Used road main garage to diagnose an oil leak on my land rover Freelander. Everybody I spoke to was very informative and helpful. They took the time to explain the fault and give me options that were in my best interest rather than most garages trying to just get your money! They have alot of knowledge when it comes to Landrovers and are very honest. Will be using again in the future
