With several easily accessible locations in North Yorkshire, there’s bound to be a Vasstech garage nearby.
There is a minimum legal requirement when it comes to tyre tread depth, with the lawful requirement of at least 1.6mm over the mid-three-quarters of the tyre width and around the full perimeter. If your tyres fall below this minimum, you could face a hefty fine alongside points on your license, if you are pulled over by the police.
A collision with a kerb, pothole or a fixed object in the road or pavement can significantly affect your tyre condition, causing bursts or scuffs.

If you notice any of these tell-tale signs or have had to perform an emergency stop, get in touch with your nearest Vasstech garage and one of our qualified technicians will inspect your tyres for any damage.
