Government legislation requires that car tyres must have a minimum tread of 1.6mm in a continuous band throughout the central ¾ of the tread width and over the whole circumference of the tyre.
The recommended Europe-wide tyre tread limit (before they are replaced) is 3mm.
The Impact of Tread Depth on Tyre Safety
The general tyre performance (road handling & braking) deteriorates considerably when used in wet conditions, once the tread depth reduces below 3mm. This is because the main function of the tread pattern of a tyre is to remove excess water. As the tyre decreases in tread depth it therefore reduces its ability to remove excess water from the road surface beneath the tyre and the car will eventually aquaplane.
Low Profile Tyres – Performance Characteristics V Standard Tyres
Low profile tyres (compared to conventional standard passenger vehicle tyres), low profile car have greater width ratio to cope with the demands of higher performance vehicles.
The key performance advantages are:
- Improved road handling and grip
- Greater traction and braking
- Road noise increase
- Rougher ride
- Aquaplaning resistance is minimised due to the amount of rubber on the road
