Anyone know what the punishment for having illegal tyre tread is?

That is below 1.6mm tread

I don't know how a fine can help a person buy new tyres...the $180 could have been spent on new tyres.

phong =P~

Proper tread will make your car roll better (more friction) and thus save fuel - right?

I'm not sure how much difference it would make to be noticable.

Has anyone actually tested this?

if your speeding your obviously are being a knob! your lucky it was just a bald tyre fine not points off your licence or a loss of your licence. YA KNOB.


If your speeding with less then good tyres a simple mistake can make that into a complete f**k up. Can't stop if you got nothing to stop with.

in QLD $100 defect vehicle fine and a defect notice to fix the problem........ replace tyre by cirtan date, car canot be drivin on the roads untill fixed when it has been defected, so you have to fix the problem and then report back to police so it puts you out in more ways then one.................keep good tread on your car................................ no matter how good your engine, suspention, etc, etc is its only the rubber that touches the ground........ so no matter how good your car is if you have s**t tyres it means nothing
