According to the rules and regulations in the UAE, the minimum tread is 1.6mm in motor cars and they are advised to change the tyre when tread reach 3mm.

Check the pressure – on monthly basis

Near the door latch, recommended the pressure of inflation is stated on the driver's side, or you can read it in the manual. Check it when the tyres are cold, that means you have not driven your car for at least 2 hours. But if you check it when your car is warm add 0.3 bars to the level.

Check the balance – on vibration

Check out if the tyres are balanced properly. If the vibration is felt through the steering wheel, you tyres are most probably not balanced.

Check the alignment –when vehicle drifts

Make sure that all the wheels are aligned properly without any imbalance. As you drive your car daily, the suspensions worn out and springs get stretched. Upon driving over a large object or hitting the pavement, your suspension can easily disrupt making improper angles for wheels.
