Tyres are the main point of contact between the road and the bike. Just like a pencil tip wears when used, so do tyres. Worn tyres can reduce grip, fuel efficiency, and can cause accidents. So this is how you can check if your tyres are worn out:
- Every tyre has a Tread Wear Indicator, which looks like an upward-pointing arrow.
- If the outer wall of a tyre touches the tip of the indicator, it must be replaced.
- Tyres must have a minimum of 2mm tread depth left, to be effective.
