    Tyres

    Due to the tracking on my astra being way off the tyre wear is very one-sided, i've only just noticed this as it's the inside of the tyre that's wearing. Along the inside the tyre is way below 1.6mm, if i get the tracking done will the tyres be illegal or are they ok, as the rest of the tyre has quite a bit of tread left.

    No, I don't think your tyre will be legal, but ask when you get your tracking done

    You might be lucky.... I think the 3/4 of the tyre must be above the limit. Although this may well have changed.

    As Andrew said it's best to ask when you have it tracked!
