According to StVO (Road Traffic Regulations) everyone must tires have a minimum profile depth of 1.6 mm in the middle part of the tread for use on the road. Below this tread depth, the tire is no longer safe and may no longer be used in road traffic.
How to measure the tread depth
On the tire flank, six triangles indicate elevations on the bottom of the main channel across the direction of travel (see illustration). Alternatively: the label TWI (Tread Wear Indicator).
If the running surface of the main profile is at the same height as the webs, the legally prescribed minimum profile depth has been reached. Change your tires and dispose of your old car tires!
Professionals recommend for Summer tires a minimum profile depth of 3 mm so that you are on the roadworthy side. Take a one euro piece and insert it into the main tread groove of a tire. If the golden edge disappears in the gutter: everything is in the green area! If the golden edge remains visible over the main tread groove: change tires, Dispose of used tires (Recommendation).
The golden edge of the one euro coin is exactly 3 mm.
at Winter tires Experts recommend a minimum profile depth of 4 mm. You can check this in the same way with a two euro coin, because here the silver edge is 4 mm.
The car tire tread depth gauge is inexpensive in stores. S.slide the dipstick into the Profile channel, around read the exact value. You can of course also use a ruler, your folding rule or a sliding blank to measure the tread depth of your tires.

>>> You should dispose of your old car tires if ...
... they are obviously damaged. The classic: You "take the curb with you". The rubber or carcass can be damaged, the steel and nylon fabric can tear.
