The motorist in question was also driving with no tax, no insurance and expired CVRT.
They were apprehended by the Cork Road Policing Unit.
Yesterday, Gardaí took to social media to emphasise that they take a zero-tolerance approach to unsafe tyres, stating that they are 'tyred' of all the excuses.
The Cork City Road Policing Unit and the RSA conducted two checkpoints yesterday with multiple offences detected.
In a statement issued by Gardaí on social media, they warned motorists:
"Driving on bald tyres is extremely dangerous."
They also took the opportunity for a bit of wordplay, stating:
"We're tyred of hearing the same old excuses and you're tyred of my dad jokes."
A checkpoint in Cork city on Tuesday also caught motorists driving on worn tyres, with no tax and with tachograph infringements.
