How to check the tyre tread depth without the usage of a guage?
Using the "20p Test” is a pretty simple and easy, alternative way to check your tread depth. A 20p coin is used to check the tread depth of your tyre. What you have to do is that set the coin into the grooves of the tyres and check if the outer band of the coin is still visible to you. There are two possibilities: Either the outer band of the coin is not visible or it is visible.
If it isn't visible, this means your tyre is above the limit. On the other hand, if you're able to see the outer band of the coin, it means the tyre is below the limit. For which the solution is to buy a new tyre and replace it with the old one, for the sake of your safety.
