A cars tyre will have to be replaced when it does not conform with the law – A bulge in the sidewall, separation of tread and a deformed carcass are three conditions that would result in having to replace a tyre. A distorted or out of shape car tyre can give a driver the same effect as an out of balance wheel. The only way to cure this particular steering vibration fault would be to change the tyre.
The same rules apply to reinforced commercial van tyres. Impact damage can also cause tears or splits in the sidewall. A tear that does not expose the cords and is less than 25 mm is acceptable. Any exposed cords will deem a tyre illegal, be it in the tyres sidewall or tread. A tyre is legally only deemed bald if it is over 25% of the treads width.
We at Pentagon Motorist Centre in Medway have established a superb reputation for high quality vehicle repair services, refer to our testimonials from our customers from Chatham, Gillingham and Rochester on our testimonial page.
Over or under inflation is a common problem that causes a tyre to become prematurely worn out, this will also effect fuel economy. Tyres require a minimum of 1.6 mm tyre tread depth across the central 75 % of the tread around the whole circumference of the tyre.
