Being entirely cynical, there's nothing to stop a lease company introducing a policy that says "In the interests of road safety, tyres can be replaced when the tread depth is under 3mm". However, what their policy actually says is...

"In the interests of keeping operating costs to a minimum wherever possible, tyres should be replaced only when the tread depth is approaching the legal minimum and is below 2mm, regardless of any argument that a 3mm limit would actually be safer."
