The law requires car tyres to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm in a continuous band around the central three quarters of the tyre. To help you judge how much tread you have on your car tyres, manufacturers often mould tread bars at roughly 1.6mm.

We deal with tyres for all types of vehicles including cars, 4 x 4’s and vans, in Crewkerne, Chard and the surrounding area.
With brand new, state of the art equipment, we can help you with all tyre related services including:
