Tyres in the UK are legally required to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre, all the way round. Arval - and our tyre partners ATS Euromaster - recommend replacing them at 2mm.
If you have Arval Total Care, or you opted to include the Maintenance package in your lease, premium replacement tyres are included in your contract, subject to our Fair Play policy on cars. This means that damaged or worn tyres are replaced inside the maintenance budget, but customers will be charged for damage caused by abuse, neglect, theft or vandalism. Replacement tyres for Light Commercial Vehicles will be charged based on the remaining tread.
Your tread depth must be 2mm or below to book a tyre fitting. To book a fitting, you’ll need:
You may be asked if the vehicle has run-flat tyres. If you’re unsure, please check with your dealer or refer to the manufacturer handbook.
You can take the car to an ATS centre, or book a mobile technician to come to you. Mobile fitting can take place at your home or work address, as long as there’s sufficient access and parking for the ATS vehicle. Mobile appointments are, of course, subject to availability, but ATS aims to provide 98% of fitting appointments within two working days.
There should be a combination of numbers and letters on the sides of each tyre. The diagram below shows what each of these means.
Tyres legally need a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm, so do keep an eye on them. We advise replacing at 2mm. ATS has more than 260 branches that are all open from 8:30am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, and from 8am to 5pm on Saturdays. And almost all centres open on bank holidays.
If it’s an emergency and you discover your tyres are not legal and ATS is closed, you can get replacements fitted free of charge at Kwik Fit or National Tyres, providing you’re an Arval Total Care or Maintenance package customer - please note that you must state you are an Arval driver. Non-urgent follow-up work (e.g. alignment) must then be booked at ATS at a time to suit.
