Part Worn Tyres

Should You Buy Part Worn Tyres?

In the UK it is not illegal to sell a part worn tyre. Legislation has been put in place to permit the sale, subject to the tyres meeting a number of strict criteria. However, the number of part worn tyres sold illegally is worrying and poses a serious safety risk to motorists.

A campaign carried out by TyreSafe discovered that 98% of part worn tyres they checked were sold illegally - with 34% of the tyre containing dangerous forms of damage.
