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:
LIMITED CHOICE. You’re stuck with what they have in stock, which may not be the ‘best’ tyre for your car.
EXPENSIVE. You don’t have the opportunity to shop around for the best price.
YES. But all this could have been avoided with a two minute tyre check.
Most garages offer FREE tyre and brake checks.
The legal minimum tread depth is 1.6mm. Please consider that safe driving in adverse weather conditions is affected by the tread depth, the pattern design and the rubber compound of the tread of your tyres. Therefore, check your tyres regularly to help your car pass its MOT.
With a 20 pence piece have a visual check of each tyre looking out for any damage and if the tread is lower than the edge of your 20 pence it’s time to change your tyres.
