Depending on your Citroën and your vehicle’s purpose, our manufacturer trained technicians can ensure you have the appropriate tyres for your driving needs. We can also explain how to check the tread of your tyre to ensure it falls within the legal limit of 1.6 millimetres. At Thames Citroën it is important to check the tread of your tyre as the more it wears down, the less able it is to grip the road safely. It is also important that your Citroën tyres are not over or under inflated as this can cause them to wear down more quickly.
