We want to raise awareness of the importance of regular tyre checks and what to look out for when it comes to tyre wear and damage.
We regularly hold Road Safety and Tyre Awareness workshops in conjunction with the Met Police to educate our customer’s fleets on tyre safety.
We designed a tread depth checker to act as a guide for drivers and operators when checking their tyres. You can scan the QR code on the back of the tread depth checker which will take you to our Daily Tyre Inspection Sheet. This sheets acts as a guide with what to do when you come across wear and damage on tyres.
Did you know you can purchase a tread depth gauge from our sister company Grumac.Tec?
