Worn tyres are a sign of danger. Tread grooves are vital for safe driving! Tread wear causes poor tyre performance and can lead to serious problems!
According to JATMA* study Comparison of the stopping distance of new tyres and worn tyres on wet surface. *Japan Automobile Tyre Manufactures Association
Driving fast on a wet road with worn tyres may lead to slipping (hydroplaning phenomenon).
The Tread wear indicator appears when the tread has worn out to 1.6mm.Never use a tyre where even just one tread wear indicator is exposed.
1. Prevention of Uneven Tread Wear
2. Extension of Tyre Service Life
3. Averaging of Tyre Fatigue
Note: The front-wheel tyres of an FF vehicle wear two or three times faster than the rear-wheel tyres because the front-wheel tyres function for both driving and steering.
