How Often Should Tyres Be Replaced?

Given that they represent the point of contact between your car and the road, the condition of your tyres is hugely important. If your tyres are in poor condition, you are placing yourself, your passengers, road users and pedestrians at risk. The importance of tyres can be seen with the fact that it is no illegal to drive around in tyres that are in poor condition. Worn tyres or tyres with a poor tread can see you facing a fine or a points penalty, and this means motorists should be aware of the importance of caring for their tyres.
Obviously a number of different factors will impact on your tyres and whether they are deemed safe enough. The initial quality of your tyres will play a part as will how many miles you have driven, the quality of the roads you drive on and the amount of weight being forced on to your tyres. When you take on board the fact that tyres that are worn out are unable to grip the road as effectively, there is no excuse for allowing your tyres to degenerate into a poor condition.
