You should dispose of your old car tires when ...

... the tread is worn too far (<1.6 mm tread depth), the tires are damaged or too old. Your car workshop will tell you whether you can still drive your tires.

However, you can use the following indicators to see for yourself the condition of your tires. We also give you tips on how to extend the life of your tires.

>>> Profile measurement

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


  1. The wear indicator

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!

  1. The coin technology

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.

  1. The tread depth gauge

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 too old. Because usually afford car tire after about six years no longer what they are supposed to do: driving safety in different weather conditions and ground conditions.

Why: The rubber compound hardens, becomes brittle and cracks. The road grip, the drainage of water on the roadway is no longer given. The tires should be disposed of urgently.

>>> 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.

Other punctures can be: Cracks, blisters, Chafe marks, Dents, places where the rubber bulges outwards, nails or shards that have drilled into the tire. Mechanical defects on the vehicle, such as incorrect axle adjustment or a defect in the braking system, can also lead to one-sided wear and / or tire damage.


Unless you notice it yourself, your car mechanic will point out this damage to you during the next inspection. And if you yourself notice "strange" driving and lane behavior in your vehicle: make an appointment at the workshop!

TireKing also likes to look at your tires!
