As part of your specialist Ford service, Sandicliffe's Ford-trained technicians can complete thorough tyre checks free of charge. As an approved Ford dealer, we have the correct diagnostics equipment and experience to make sure that your tyre's tread depth is completely safe for the road.
Driving with worn or damaged tyres affects handling of your Ford vehicle, putting yours and others safety at risk. Your tyres should meet certain legal requirements and if they don't, you could face a fine of £2,500 and three penalty points to your license. Not only that, it is also illegal to use unsuitable tyres, over-worn tyres and mix tyres of different types that are not suitable for your vehicle.
That is why it is vital to have your tyres checked on a regular basis. Our professional team will check your tyres for tread depth, pressure, condition of your tyres and ultimately will make sure that they are safe.
Tyres should be inflated correctly, this may differ dependant on manufacturer and type of vehicle. If a tyre is over or under inflated this could cause wear or increase the consumption of your fuel. Ensure that your tyres are inflated to Ford's recommended pressure for your vehicle.
The legal minimum tread depth for cars in the UK is 1.6mm across the central three quarters of the tyre around its entire circumference.
You can also check your tyres tread depth with a 20p, by placing it in the main grooves of your tyre. If you can see the outer band of the 20p when it's placed in the tyre then they should be inspected by a Ford servicing professional. We recommend that you replace your tyres before the legal limit is reached at around 78% worn as tread depth significantly affects braking distance.
