Tyre replacement

Tyre replacement

Why do my tyres need changing?
At the right pressure, the compound rubber and scientifically cut tread patterns add to your car's handling and comfort. Too much wear will affect grip and safety as your car will become harder to handle. Incorrect tyre pressures and/or uneven tyre wear will also increase stopping distances in wet conditions.

What happens if they are not changed?
If your tyre tread is below the legal minimum depth of 1.6mm, your car won't pass an MOT test and you could be fined or get points on your license. But for safety reasons we recommend changing them before the legal limit is reached.

What do we do?
We check your tyres for pressure, tread depth and wear of the pattern. If they need replacing we have a range of different options in stock, depending on your car and type of driving.

How often do they need to be checked?
Every MOT test and service; and regularly by driver.
