How To Check Tyre Tread Depth From Home

If you’re concerned that your tread depth is no longer suitable, especially coming into winter, here is a quick and easy way for you to check if they are still within the legal limit at home using only a 20p coin.

Simply start by grabbing a 20p coin, then insert into the tread grooves of the tyre. If the outer band of the coin is not visible, then your tyres are within the legal limit. This simple, easy trick only takes 2 minutes and allows you to know if you are safe on the roads.

If you are still unsure whether your tread depth is suitable, contact Hockey Group Automotive and book in for a service to make sure your tyres are safe this winter. Call us on – 01873 840170 or email –
