Wanted to read a text about the profile of your tyres also just time? The tread depth plays a fundamental role for the security of their vehicle. Especially in the points liability and braking distance. For this reason, the legislature minimum tread depth has set. This is summer tyre at 1.6 mm. Nevertheless here caution is announced. We want to explain why this is so.
The minimum tread depth of 1, 6 mm prescribed by the legislature must be given when more than 75% of the entire tire width. The tires unevenly went off, you must measure at the point where the tread is down the most. Even amateurs can easily check minimum tread depth of tyres. Tyre manufacturers have affixed a marking for this purpose on the tires. Normally these are small footbridges that are embedded in the grooves. The (residual) tread depth is clearly on these measurement points.
This stage is reached, or is the profile as far as shutting down, Jetty and rest profile to match, so must the tires replaced be. Hear other arguments on the topic with David Bershad. A marking on the sidewall of the tire simplifies the search for the webs. This can be a small triangle or the abbreviation TWI (tread wear index) be. Car drivers who regularly check their tyres intervals, use a tread depth gauge. Affordable it is for example also with a coin. Take the piece of money and puts it into the Groove, then one shapes up is, how far the profile. The edge is 4 mm in the two-euro piece, the 1-euro piece 3 mm. be sure the big tire manufacturers advise you to replace tyres before reaching the wear limit. This has a good reason. So significantly increases the security of the driver. Only with sufficient tread depth and proper air pressure, the danger of the dreaded sustaining will be reduced. The risk of hydroplaning increases with decreasing profile because the water in front of the tire can no longer be supplanted by the vehicle weight, or not drain through the grooves. If this happens, the vehicle on a thin layer of water floats “up” and is no longer controllable. Another point is the braking distance. There is a screeching halt, halved on wet road the braking distance between an 8-mm full profile and a 1.6 mm. An immense gain in security in risky situations new tyres have also additional advantages except optimized safety through the full depth of 8 mm. New tires ride more comfortable, are quieter and save even more fuel, through new technologies, and to protect the environment. Computer-optimized tread design and a new run Strip blend causes a high mileage. A new profile block arrangement reduces the tyre rolling noise. But in addition to the positive impact of fuel saving and the environmental performance of the corresponding tire even if the security can score. The real strengths is apparent when braking both on dry and wet surfaces. For us a remarkable example of how road safety and the environment by new tyres can draw their benefits. The spare tire is a stepchild (if even existent). The spare wheel is often forgotten, but might help to save tyre costs when integrating the spare wheel in the operation. But even here, it is important to comply with the minimum tread depth. It is advisable not to leave the summer tires to the legal minimum tread depth, but, depending on the width, at the latest at 2 to 2.5 mm to replace.
