For motorcycle riders is the non-slip contact between the tires and the roadway is vital. But how deep is the profile? And where it is best measured?

Stuttgart (dpa/tmn) - bikers should always ride with more than the legally required 1.6 mm remaining tread. This is especially true for the rear tires, advises Dekra. General statements about how much more than the minimum profile it should be, and that this can be difficult.
