Fig. 185 Tyre tread: wear indicatorsFirst read and observe the introductory information and safety warningsвЂ‰
Difficult driving situations demand the deepest possible tread depth for the tyres and the same tread depth for the tyres on the front and rear axle. This applies in particular for driving in winter weather and cold temperatures and in wet conditions вЂ‰.
In most countries, the minimum tread depth required by law is 1.6 mm (measured in the tread grooves next to the tread wear indicators). Observe any country-specific legal requirements.
Winter tyres lose their effectiveness when the tread is worn down to a depth of 4 mm.
The tread depth of new tyres can vary according to type and manufacturer due to construction and tread design.
Tread wear indicator in tyres
The original tyres on your vehicle have 1.6 mm high tread wear indicators running across the tread вЂ‰. These wear indicators are positioned at set intervals around the tyre. Markings on the tyre sidewall (for instance the letters TWI or other symbols) indicate the positions of the tread wear indicators.
The tread wear indicators show if a tyre is worn down. The tyre must be replaced at the latest when the tread depth is just before the tread wear indicator.
WARNINGWorn tyres are a safety risk and can lead to a loss of control over the vehicle and cause serious injury.
