What do we mean by “Part Worn”?
Cheap and branded tyres, basically.
Why should you buy Part Worn tyres?
The big advantage of part worn tyres is that they cost less than brand new tyres. What’s more, by buying a set of used rubber you might be able to afford a higher quality tyre from a big name brand, rather than a budget tyre from a manufacturer you’ve never heard of.
What can you expect from a Part Worn tyre?
Vendors are bound by law to adhere to a number of strict regulations under the Motor Vehicle Tyres Safety Regulations 1994 (reg.7.) which are part of the Consumer Protection Act. This means it is an offence for anyone to sell part worn tyres that do not meet the following principal requirements. First and foremost, second-hand tyres should be in good condition, which means no bulges in the sidewall and no large cuts in the tread, while none of the structural carcass or cords should be visible. Additionally, they should have at least 1.6mm (legal minimum tread in the UK) of tread across their width.
Some part-worn tyres are shipped over from overseas, where the minimum legal tread depth can reach 3mm. In the UK it’s 1.6mm, so an imported part-worn tyre will still have plenty of tread left and perhaps several thousand miles still to run.
All tyres will be pressure-tested as well as having safety checks performed (individually inspected).
Important information for your tyres are displayed on the sidewall, as seen below.
