1.1 Do the tyres meet conditions below?
The legal tyre tread depth is 1.6 mm across the central three-quarters of the tread width & around the circumference.
Some tyres have tread wear indicators moulded into the base of the main groves. When the tread surface is worn to the same level as the indicators, the tyre is at the legal limit & should be replaced.
The driver must ensure that tyre levels are checked on a weekly basis in line with all other conditions checks. The YES response to this question assumes this is happening.
If in any doubt please contact fleet or the lease company
