The most important safety check you can make.

Providing the only contact between you and the road, tyres are a vital element for road safety. From tyre tread to pressure, we have provided some information below to ensure you are getting the most out of your car while keeping safe.

Are your tyres legal?

The minimum legal limit is 1.6mm across the middle 75% of your tyre at any point. You’ll find tyre wear indicators in the base of the tyre tread groove. Once the tread has worn to these indicators, your tyres are at 1.6mm and illegal.

If you prefer, contact one of our retailers and book in for a complimentary tyre safety check.

Tyre pressures?

It is vitally important that you not only check the condition of your tyres but that you check your tyre pressures are set to the correct level. We recommend you check your tyres at least twice a month as incorrect pressure could cause irregular wear patterns: over-inflated could cause excessive wear to the centre of the tyres whereas under-inflation can cause wear on the shoulders more. Depending on make and model of your car, you may need to reset the tyre pressure warning system. Please check your car manual for more information or contact one of our retailers for more information.

Uneven wear?

If you experience premature tyre wear, you should have your vehicles wheel alignment checked. Tiny changes to the wheel alignment that you can’t feel through steering can cause uneven tyre wear and affect your cars performance.

Customer Feedback

My husband and I have just bought 2 cars from here and we were so impressed with the professional service and very friendly staff. Jamie Turnbull made us feel so at ease and we didn't feel pressurised at all. We felt we were dealing with a friend. We will definitely be using Lloyd Used Car Centre again in the future.
