  • 1 – Where the vehicle’s tyre depth has gone below the RM minimum tread depth, but remains legal to drive, an appointment with the nearest RM Fleet Workshop or external contractor used for tyre services, where appropriate, should be made to have the tyres replaced prior to their reaching the minimum legal tread depth.

  • 2.5 – Alpine Tyres (commonly referred to as Winter Tyres) are available by special request where absolutely necessary.
