Checking the tread on your car tyres is really important and you can do this at home using a coin for depth. In order for a car to be used on the UK roads, all your tyres, including the spare tyre, should comply with a number of requirements including relevant sidewall markings – which the manufacturer is responsible for, and selecting the correct fitment and maintaining the tyre condition, which is what the motorist is responsible for.
Official guidelines recommend that tyres should be checked on a weekly basis for:
- tread depth
- tread condition
- inflation pressure
- tread/sidewall damage
- signs of irregular wear
If in doubt, please pop along to our service centre in Dogmersfield or Fleet, and we will inspect the tyres free of charge and advise on whether you are at risk of invalidating your car insurance policy. If you are under the legal limit of 1.6mm of tread you could incur a hefty fine and penalty points on your licence, as well as endangering those around you by driving on illegal tyres.
The noise your exhaust makes can give an indication as to what is causing the problem:
- A loud roar could signify a hole in your exhaust pipe
- A persistent rattle may mean part of the exhaust is loose
- A tinkling sound could be a problem with your silencer
Sometimes it may just need a minor adjustment or the mounts replacing, which we can do at minimal cost. If you would like us to check your exhaust and provide an accurate diagnosis, please pop into our service centre in Dogmersfield or Fleet and we will be happy to take a quick look, free of charge and if further investigation is required, we can undertake a comprehensive inspection for you.
