Question from visitor, 18/06/2014 :I’m going on holiday and am going to be driving a lot, what should I check my tyres for?
Answer by rezulteo, 18/06/2014 :

To be safe your tyres should have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm. Run your hands around the tyre to make sure there are no irregularities. Check the pressure when the tyres are cold. If you inflate the tyres when they are warm, add 0.3 bars to the manufacturer's recommended pressure.
