M & B Vehicle Services offers a huge range of tyre makes and sizes for all budgets backed up with highly competitive prices, honest advice, and excellent customer service.

We are suppliers of a wide range of tyres such as cars, vans, 4×4, run-flat and performance tyres.

In current UK law, car, van, and LCV drivers are required to have at least 1.6mm of tread across the central three-quarters of the tyre, around its entire circumference. 

What should I look for when checking my tyres?

Your tyre pressures should be checked in line with the vehicle manufacturers’ recommended settings. However, if your vehicle is heavily loaded you will need to consider this as you may need to increase the pressure in the tyres.

How often do I need to change my tyres?

Tyres ideally should be checked regularly at least once a month and always before starting a journey. The tyre inspection should include:

  • Correct air pressure
  • Visual inspection of the overall condition
  • Tread depth
  • Don’t forget to check your spare!

Drivers who fail to comply with the regulations face a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre.


1. What types of tyres does M & B Vehicle Services offer?

M & B Vehicle Services provides a wide range of tyres suitable for various vehicles, including cars, vans, 4x4s, run-flat tyres, and performance tyres. We offer multiple brands and sizes to fit different budgets and needs, ensuring you get the right tyres for your vehicle.

2. What is the current UK legal minimum tread depth for tyres?

The current UK law mandates that drivers of cars, vans, and Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) must have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre, around its entire circumference. Ensuring your tyres meet this requirement is crucial for safety and legal compliance.

3. How can I check if my tyres are in good condition?

To check your tyres, you should:

  • Ensure tyre pressures align with the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended settings, adjusting for any heavy loads.
  • Perform a visual inspection of the tyre’s overall condition, looking for any damage or wear.
  • Measure the tread depth to ensure it meets the legal requirement.
  • Don’t forget to inspect your spare tyre to ensure it is also in good condition.

4. How frequently should I check and change my tyres?

You should inspect your tyres at least once a month and always before embarking on a long journey. Regular checks should include:

  • Verifying correct air pressure.
  • Conducting a visual inspection for any damage or excessive wear.
  • Measuring the tread depth to ensure it meets the legal minimum. Regular inspections help maintain safety and prolong the lifespan of your tyres.

5. What are the penalties for driving with tyres below the legal tread depth?

Driving with tyres that have tread depth below the legal minimum of 1.6mm can result in severe penalties. You could face a fine of up to £2,500 and receive three penalty points for each tyre that does not comply with the regulations. Ensuring your tyres are within legal limits is essential to avoid these penalties and ensure safe driving conditions.
