Tyres

In 2003, the British Rubber Manufacturers Association (BRMA) commissioned MIRA to study the effects of tread depth on stopping distances. The study was carried out on 5 different tread depths - 6.7mm, 4.1mm, 2.6mm, 1.6mm (the legal minimum) and 0.9mm.

Result: At the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm, the stopping distance is increased by 36.8% on hot rolled asphalt and 44.6% on smooth concrete.

Recommendations From the independent research, RoSPA recommends that tyres are changed once the tread reaches 3mm in depth.

It's against the law to have:

  • Car tyres with tread worn to below 1.6mm;
  • A mix of radial and cross ply tyres;
  • Over or under-inflated tyres;
  • Tyres with cuts, lumps, bulges or tears;
  • The wrong sort of tyre fitted to a vehicle or trailer.
