Information

  • A tyre with 5mm or more tread is at its optimal performance level and therefore performs as originally intended.
  • It is important to be aware that when driving in wet weather, the tread pattern of a tyre helps to disperse water from the contact patch with the road.
  • As the tread wears down, the tyre gradually loses its ability to remove all of the water from the road surface, resulting in longer stopping distances and an increased risk of aquaplaning.
  • A new tyre has at least 8mm of tread and will stop 10 metres shorter than a tyre with only 1.6mm of tread (with an average water depth of only 0.8mm)
  • *All testing carried out with a medium sized, 2.0 TDi, front wheel drive hatchback running 195/65 R15 tyres at 2.2 bar (cold). Testing was carried out on a Hot Rolled Asphalt surface with an average of 0.8mm water depth.
