As good corporate citizens, tyre fitment centres and tyre sales dealers have a responsibility to ensure that
any second-hand tyre being sold complies with the South African National Standard (SANS 10408:2018) to
ensure the safety of their customers and all road users.
Being able to recognise a safe-for-use second-hand tyre is essential. The sale of a worn tyre that is deemed
below the safe-for-use standards and that should have been scrapped, will not only endanger the life of the
road-user but may also constitute breaking the law, with the dealer liable for conviction for a period not
exceeding 15 years, or a fine or both.
It's important to understand what makes tyre safe to re-use, and when a tyre should be scrapped. To find out
