By using part worn tyres in St Helens you’ll be doing your bit for the environment. Now I know, you’re probably thinking what are we talking about, let me explain. With using part worn tyres they are being recycled therefore there is less waste being created from the tyres, this is definitely one of the great benefits of part worn tyres.

We’ve seen the benefits of part worn tyres now what are the laws?

When it comes to part worn tyres there are some laws that are in place for them to be sold correctly. It isn’t illegal to sell part worn tyres but if they don’t meet the certain standards that have been set then they can’t be sold as they aren’t fit for purpose.

The laws of part worn tyres in St Helens & the whole UK are as followed:

  • They must have an EC approved mark
  • They must be clearly marked and advertised as part worn
  • The speed and capacity index must be clearly marked
  • There must be no cuts over 25mm
  • There must be no lumps, bulges and tears in the tyre
  • There can’t be any penetration damage
  • The original tyre tread pattern must be at least 2mm deep

If a part worn tyre fails to meet any of these standards then it strictly can’t be sold but luckily for you all of our part worn tyres in St Helens are within the law boundaries and ready to sell and be fitted to your vehicle.
