Tyre changes, other tyre work and tyre storage for vehicles owned and managed by LeasePlan should be handled with our partners:
Guidelines for replacing tyres:
Vehicles owned and managed by LeasePlan are primarily mounted with Michelin, Bridgestone, Goodyear and Nokian tyres. LeasePlan’s tyre replacement guidelines are based on research and studies about the effect of tyre tread on driving safety. When tyres need replacing, contact the above-mentioned tyre fitters. The tyre fitter will inspect the condition of the tyres and ask LeasePlan for permission to invoice.
|Tread depth at which tyres should be replaced:
|Summer and winter tyres (stud)
|All-season (friction) tyres
The replacement of tyres due to external damage can also be invoiced through LeasePlan.
Please pay attention to the following matters:
Check tyre pressures regularly
Low tyre pressure adversely affects vehicle’s drivability and considerably increases rolling resistance. Check your vehicle’s tyre pressures when the tyres are cold at least once a month and before setting off on a long journey. You will find the recommended tyre pressures for different vehicle loads in the vehicle’s manual or on the fuel tank door. Remember to also regularly check the pressure in your spare tyre.
Keep an eye on tread depths
Inspect the wear on your tyres regularly, at least once a month, when checking your tyre pressures. You can check the tread depth visually or with a suitable tool. The tread wear indicator on a summer tyre is set to appear when the tread has worn down to the statutory 1.6 mm.
You can check that your tyres have a tread depth of 4 mm, which is the safety recommendation, using a 2 euro coin. Place the coin vertically in the main groove in the tread. If the coin’s 4 mm wide silver edge remains visible, it is recommended that you replace your tyres
