Give your car the
MOT it deserves

So, you’re one of the one in five drivers with an MOT due. Will you also be one of the one in two drivers who fail their MOT due to a problem with tyres?

Imagine the scene; your car is at the local garage, you’re clock watching - you’ve got to get to work, pick up the kids, get to that important date - and they say “you need two new tyres to pass the MOT”. Anger, frustration, cold sweat… and you ask:

Do you have any… and can you fit them now?

LIMITED CHOICE. You’re stuck with what they have in stock, which may not be the ‘best’ tyre for your car.

How much?

EXPENSIVE. You don’t have the opportunity to shop around for the best price.

Will I pass the MOT with them?

YES. But all this could have been avoided with a two minute tyre check.
