Making sure your tyres are in good condition is a vital part of driving safely – they are the sole point of contact between you and the road. Your tyre tread should be at least 1.6mm in order to be within the legal limit, and the tyre should be free from damage such as bulges and uneven wear. Depending on your driving style and the condition of the roads you have driven on, 1mm of tyre tread usually lasts between 1,000 and 4,000 miles.
If you are concerned about the condition of your tyres and would like to have them checked by one of our Volvo-trained technicians, please get in touch. This is done by taking three readings across the width of the tyre and does not take long. It is quick and easy to arrange an appointment at our workshop in Chelmsford – simply complete the online booking form or phone us directly.
It is also essential to fit the right tyres for your vehicle and this will depend on the specification and your motoring requirements. At our dealership in Chelmsford we have a team of specialist advisers who can help you find the ideal tyres for your budget.

To help you drive safely in cold weather you can equip your Volvo with winter tyres. They are made from softer rubber which stays flexible when the temperature drops, helping your car to grip the road more effectively and giving you increased confidence. Winter tyres also dramatically reduce stopping distances on ice and snow.
You can find out more about the benefits of winter tyres by getting in touch with our team. To order winter tyres and book an appointment to have them fitted, please enquire at Waterhouse Cars in Chelmsford in Essex.
