Tyres are the vehicle's only point of contact with the road with the actual area of contact between the car and the road being very small. Bald tyres - 'slicks' - may be fine for a race car on a dry track, but no good at all for road vehicles on a wet road surface.
Tyres' treads are designed to pump water from the road surface and provide maximum grip. By the time the tread is worn down to the legal limit they will be unable to perform this task efficiently and MUST be replaced immediately.
Tyres are measured by taking three readings across the width of the tyre. There can be a variation in the readings which could signify different things. For example, a reading of 6, 4, 2 could point to the a need for a wheel alignment check.
Maximum Tyre Tread = 8mm
Minimum Legal Limit = 1.6mm
RECOMMENDED MINIMUM TREAD = 3mm
