ATMA-Honda Joins Hand For Tyre Safety

Automotive Tyre Manufacturer Association (ATMA), the representative body of Indian tyre makers, and Honda Cars India have come together to spread awareness on the hazards of worn-out tyres and the need to check Tread Wear Indicators (TWI).

“Usage of worn-out tyres on Indian highways has emerged as a safety hazard. TWI is easy to understand feature designed to help motorists replace tyres well within time and pre-empt accidents”, said V K Misra, Chairman ITTAC.

New tyres have a tread depth of 8mm. Treadwear indicators bar moulded into the tread grooves at a regular interval around the tyre to indicate when a tyre is worn to its limit of safety. The minimum legal tread depth is 1.6 mm across the width of the tread. While that is the legal requirement some car manufacturers recommend you replace your tyres before they wear to that extent.

“In collaboration with the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH), ATMA and ITTAC are raising awareness about TWIs so that mishaps due to worn-out tyres could be minimized. With Honda joining hands in the initiative, the drive will gather further momentum, said Rajiv Budhraja, Director General ATMA.

Taking the first step forward, Honda has placed large posters creating awareness on TWI at their corporate office and manufacturing unit at Greater Noida for the benefit of all the employee.
