Motorhome Tyres – Mobile Fitting | Legal Tread Depth on Motorhome Tyres

We went out to a customer in Bristol today who was on holiday in the area from Essex. This family had hired a motorhome from a local rental company in their home-town, they hadn't noticed the tyres until they arrived in Bristol.

Upon inspection of the tyres on the campsite, the customer found the below.


Completely bald and illegal tyres! This had been inspected and released from a rental company as a safe and legal vehicle. The recommended tread depth on these tyres is 3mm. Whereas the legal tread depth on these tyres is 1.6mm across the central ¾ in an even band around the tyre.

These don't even come close!

We replaced these with brand new Michelin Agilis Camping Tyres, keeping the customer safe and happy on their travels around the UK.

We don't doubt that this image will be shown to the rental company upon the motorhomes return!
