After a puncture, the punctured tyre was replaced but it is not the same model as the other tyre on the axle. It is the same brand but not the same name. Does the Highway Code allow this?



The Highway Code does not require you to have the same tyre on the same axle. However, tyres on the same axle must comply with the following rules: They must be the same brand, have the same dimensions, same category of use (e.g. road, snow, all terrain), same structure: Radial or diagonal, the same speed rating and the same load index. If your tyres comply with all of the above, then you comply with the Highway Code, even if they do not have the same tread pattern. All the same, make sure that the difference in wear between tyres on a same axle is no more than 5mm maximum.
