Sufficient tread depth is critical to safe motoring. The tread grooves are designed to remove water from the road surface and keep the tyre in contact with the road.
If the grooves are not deep enough, water cannot be moved resulting in a loss of grip.

HULL: The County Road North flyover will re-open to traffic ahead of the estimated date.
The road will open on Monday after Hull City Council originally expected the work to be completed by November 11.
The council said it has completed a significant aspect of the work to make sure it is safe and can now re-open the bridge sooner while carrying out the rest of the work.
The flyover will re-open in the afternoon with controlled temporary lights to allow two-way traffic to ensure the safety of the workforce who will be completing the necessary works under the bridge.
Graham Hall, assistant head of transport and asset management, said: "Hull City Council apologises for the inconvenience and disruption this has caused to drivers."
HULL: Drivers faced disruption after the Humber Bridge was partially closed after police became concerned for the safety of a man.
The northbound carriageway was closed for three hours after members of the public contacted police at 3.23pm.
The man was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary.
