Responsible motorists have already mounted winter tyres on their cars. Nevertheless, before taking on longer journeys, you should check your winter tyres: do they still have enough tread depths and sufficient inflation pressure or are there even any damages visible? “A closer look to the clean tyres serves your own safety. If you detect any cracks or bulges you should immediately replace your winter tyres. This also applies if the tread depths arrives to 4 mm”, says tyre expert Philip von Grolman of ReifenDirekt.de.
