Drivers - don't forget your tyres. Book a FREE Tyre Check at Autotest to check the condition of your tyres.
Our expert technicians will carry out a pressure check and inspect for tread depth, wear and damage to ensure your tyres are safe and legal.
If the tyre inspection shows up any problems, we will offer advice on what can be done to correct the issue.
TYRE TREAD RECOMMENDATIONS -
The Institute of Advanced Motorists recently revealed that 1 in 10 new and used cars have at least one tyre which is worn below the legal requirement - apart from the safety aspects, this could get you a hefty fine (up to £2,500) and three points on your licence. The legal minimum tread depth for your tyres is 1.6mm, however, most motoring organisations recommend replacing them when the tread depth is down to 2.5mm for driving in winter – you’ll notice the difference in grip!
In the colder months we can offer a Winter Tyre option.
Winter tyres have a high silica content and specifically designed pattern, which operate best at temperatures under 7 Degrees or below. These are designed to improve stopping distances and give better traction in wet / icy conditions.
