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 that we check the treads for you, please contact your local Lloyd retailer to book your complimentary tyre safety check.
Incorrect tyre pressures?It is vitally important that you not only check the condition of your tyres but that you check that 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 tyres could cause excessive wear to the centre of the tyres whereas under-inflation can cause greater wear on the shoulders. Depending on the make and model of your car, you may need to reset the tyre pressure warning system.
Please check your car manual or contact one of our retailers for more information.
Uneven wear?If you experience premature tyre wear, you should have your vehicle’s wheel alignment checked. Tiny changes to the wheel alignment that you can’t feel through steering can cause uneven tyre wear and affect your car’s performance.
We price-match tyresIf you think quality comes at a high price, you could be in for a pleasant surprise. Contact your local Lloyd Service Department for a quotation next time you need replacement tyres. We offer a like-for-like price-match service so you’ll find we are more than competitive with no hidden extras.
Everything went perfectly: form leaving my car and being offered a lift to work (and a coffee to take with me), to the update phone mid-morning, to the car being all ready and clean on pickup.
