The Tread Buddy

The Tread Buddy

If you have a Tread BuddyTM thats great, it’s the easiest way to check if your treads are within legal limits.

Staying legal though is not just about the tread depth, good tyre health is vitally important for your own and other road users.

This handy little gadget is the easy read tread depth indicator which lets you see when you have reached the recommended change level and whether your tyres are still legal (if the fall below 1.6mm for cars & 4×4’s). Keep your fob with your vehicle keys and check your treads weekly.

Some versions of the Tread Buddy have a reverse side and offer a guide for tread depth on motorbikes and HGV’s (the minimum tread depth for these vehicles is 1mm).

The Tread BuddyTM is endorsed by by many organisations and used by police, fire and road safety specialists to help promote safer tread depth.
