Buying part worn tyres – what operators need to know

A tyre that has previously been fitted and worn on another vehicle is known as a “part worn tyre”.

This also applies if you purchase a second-hand vehicle and do not replace the tyres.

Buying and fitting part-worn tyres is not illegal.

But, there could be serious road safety risks if there is an underlying issue with a part worn tyre fitted.

Christopher Lowe, a Market Surveillance Unit investigations manager shares his findings from recent investigative work and explains how you can make sure you are buying and fitting compliant part-worn tyres.
