Tread depth on heavy vehicles must not be less than 1mm at any point across a continuous band covering at least 75% of the width of the tread around the circumference of the tyre. (The minimum depth for lighter vehicles is 1.6mm). The tread pattern must also be visible across the remainder of the tread.
