Will My Car Fail Its MOT For Damaged Tyres?

Posted on by admin

The MOT test checks the state and condition of all four tyres of a car. The tyres have to be within 1.6 mm (the permissible limit in the UK), besides being in good condition. Even the valves and wheels have to be in good condition.

Checks During MOT Test

During the MOT test, the tyres are checked for bulges, cracks on the sidewall, tears and other damage. If the tyres are found to be unsafe for driving or do not conform to the aforementioned conditions, they will fail the MOT test.

During the test, even tread depth is checked. A gauge is used to check the depth and ensure they comply with the rules. While the state of the spare tyre does not have a bearing on the MOT test, the condition of the wheel does. The wheel should be in good condition, without cracks or any type of distortion. The wheel should be attached in a safe and secure manner to the vehicle, and no nuts or studs should be missing. If the spare tyre is fixed outside the vehicle, it should be fixed safely, so as not to fall off while driving.
