More tread means more grip in the wet. It’s as simple as that. Check your tread depth regularly either with a dedicated tread gauge or using the built-in tread wear indicator on your tyres. The legal requirement in European countries for summer passenger tyres is 1.6 mm.

Tyres simply will not work without enough air. Make sure you check your pressure at least once a month and keep your tyres correctly inflated at all times. You’ll find the correct pressure for your vehicle in your operating manual and in most cases either under your fuel cap, call us on 021-4397961 if you need advice.

An E Mark confirms the tyre meets the minimum agreed standard in terms of its load, dimension and speed rating.
In the EU it is a requirement that EU motor vehicles have e-marked tyres both old and new. The mark will consist of an “E” or an “e” followed by a number included a circle or rectangle. The number represents which government granted approval while the number outside the circle or rectangle represents the type of approval certificate issued for the tyre size and type.
As well as tyres, exhaust silencer, catalytic convertors and brake pads must also be e-marked. Tyres which are not e-marked do not meet the required minimum EU or international standard and can cause you to lose your driver’s license.
Checking of e-marked tyres as part of the roadworthiness test is common through the EU. Since 1st April 2010. The NCT now includes a check to ensure that tyres on cars are e-marked. View the new NCT test items here.
