A part-worn tyre is one that has been used before but this does not mean it is worn out. Tyres with enough remaining thread can still go for thousands of miles. Often people change tyres long before their lifespan is over because of changing seasons or style. A new tyre has an 8mm thread and part-worn tyres can have up 75% of this remaining. The legal limit you can drive on is 1.6mm so there’s a lot of life left in tyres yet.

Get to know your tyres: Tyre Grades
Part-worn Tyres are divided into grades. Each tyre has a thread that is cut into the tyre to give it grip on the road. Part-worn tyres still have thread but to varying levels. You can decide which one suits you best.
If you do a lot of driving and have a high annual mileage count then you’ll like Grade A tyres. These have at least 85% of the thread remaining and are almost new.
For the city or town driver with just average mileage the Grade B might be for you. These have at least 60% of the thread remaining and are an affordable option for the average driver.
If your tyres are not balanced correctly they can cause vibrations when you drive and your drive will not be smooth and comfortable. In fact, it can affect all the components in your car like the suspension and wheel bearing.
So get your tyres balanced for:
- A smoother drive
- Increased comfort
- Reduced tyre wear
- Enhanced drive train components (everything functions well together)
