When should I change my car tyres

When should I change my car tyres

Last Monday when I got Autumn and I home from swimming, I walked around my car to check my tyres before I got my things out. “Hmm, the front nearside tyre’s tread is getting a bit worn” I thought to myself.

When I was little, I remember my Dad regularly checking the tyres on his car and showing me how to check them using a 20p coin. However, I realise that a lot of people out there probably have several questions buzzing around their minds when it comes to tyres: “How often should I check my tyres?”, “How do I check that my tyres aren’t too worn?”, “Can I prevent my tyres from getting worn so quickly?” and “What are the dangers of driving with worn tyres?”
