Part worn tyres?

When it comes to replacing your tyres you have a number of options available to you. Depending on the car and your driving style / conditions you drive in may impact on the type of tyres you chose. Part worn tyres are a cheap way of getting your vehicle legal but are they always the most cost effective solution?

When recently enquiring about replacing my tyres I was quite shocked to find that although I could get part worn tyres for approximately twenty pounds each or new tyres for £30-£40 each.

Part worn tyres only have to have a minimum of 3mm of tread left which is often the tread level garages advise you to change them. Also you are not always guaranteed to get the same make or of the quality of the brand of the tyres. By paying an extra £15 per tyre I could have two new tyres, both of the same high quality make.

It is definitely worth considering going for new tyres over part worns when you look at value for money.
