Tyre Check at Swansway Volkswagen Van Centre

You are risking invalidating your car insurance policy, getting fined and penalty points and endangering around when driving on damaged or worn tyres.

Few points to remember:

The legal minimum tread depth for vans is a minimum of 1.6mm. This 1.6mm should be in a continuous band throughout the central three-quarters of the tread width, throughout the whole of the circumference.

  • A cut in excess of 25mm or 10% of the section width of the tyre , whichever is greater, measured in any direction on the outside of the tyre and deep enough to reach the ply or cord would deem the tyre illegal.
  • All tyres marked "Temporary Use Only" are restricted to 50mph
  • If there is any cut in the tyre no matter how small which exposes cords, then the tyre is illegal.

There is now a more convenient place for tyres. We stock a range of tyres and can fit them quickly and easily.

All with the expert advice and support you'd expect from trained technicians, so you can spend more time on the road.
