Our tyre safety checks

A tyre safety check comprehensively evaluates your vehicle’s tyres to ensure they meet legal and safety standards.

Technicians examine the overall condition of the tyres for any signs of damage, such as cuts, bulges, or punctures, which could lead to dangerous blowouts.

Safety checks are critical if you’re concerned about tyre wear or recent damage to your vehicle.

After the tyre check, your trained technician will inform you whether you need a replacement or not.

What’s involved in a Tyre safety check

We thoroughly inspect the entire tyre – the whole tread and the inner and outer walls. That involves lifting the car off the ground and rotating the wheels to look for uneven wear or damage.

A visual check simply isn’t sufficient.

Our tyre safety check includes:

  • Inspecting tyre tread depth for legal compliance
  • Examining overall tyre condition for cuts, bulges, or punctures
  • Measuring and adjusting tyre pressure to the manufacturer’s specifications
  • Checking for uneven wear patterns on tyres
  • Ensuring tyres are correctly mounted and aligned
  • Verifying the age of the tyres for potential degradation
  • Looking for any embedded objects or surface damage
  • Confirming the presence and condition of a spare tyre (if applicable)

Frequently asked questions.

Our most frequently asked questions.

How do you check your tyres are safe?2023-12-20T15:28:17+00:00

To check if your tyres are safe, use a 20p coin. If the inner rim is hidden, your tyre is likely safe with at least 3mm of tread. If you can see the outer rim, it might be less than 3mm and unsafe. You can also speak to one of our technicians for a safety check.

How long does 2mm tread last?2023-12-20T15:28:40+00:00

The longevity of 2mm of tread on your tyres can vary depending on various factors, with usage being a key consideration. In general, with only 2mm of tread depth remaining, you can expect to drive for approximately 1,000 miles before the tyres reach a point where they need to be replaced.

Can someone come out to change a tyre?2023-12-20T15:27:21+00:00

Absolutely, you can always give us a call to learn more about our mobile tyre-fitting services and our availability.

The Importance Of tyre safety checks

If you’ve recently sustained damage to your tyre or are concerned about uneven wear, always book a tyre safety check.

Regular safety checks help identify potential issues early, such as worn tread or damage, which could, if left untreated, lead to dangerous situations like blowouts or loss of control.

What’s more is that adequate tread depth is critical for effective braking and grip, particularly in wet conditions and properly inflated tyres improve fuel efficiency and reduce wear, saving money and extending tyre life.

Overall, these checks avoid any legal penalties, keep your vehicle road-worthy, and reduce the risk of potentially disastrous accidents.
