Tyre pressure

Checking your tyre pressure regularly helps ensure you have better grip on the road, increased handling and better braking distances.

It only takes a few minutes to check, and it helps to keep your vehicle at peak performance.

You can check your pressure yourself at home, or out at a petrol station. Alternatively, you can do it as part of your free tyre check at Vertu Motors.

Tread depth

Tread depth

The legal tread depth for your tyres is 1.6mm. You should look to replace your tyres before this limit to ensure safety on the road.

Bald tyres not only look bad, but they perform badly too. You'll get less fuel economy and you also run an elevated risk of skidding, particularly in the rain.

Keep your car looking and performing brilliantly with a free tyre check at Vertu Motors.

General wear & damage

General wear & damage

Regular parking, potholes and driving over debris can cause general wear and damage to your tyres which adds up over time.

It is important to regularly check your tyres for bulges, lumps, tears and cuts. They can impact the vehicle's grip on the road and cause other serious issues.

We'll do it for you. Book your free tyre check at Vertu Motors today.

Why are tyre checks so important?

Regular tyre checks are important to keep you and your passengers safe on the road and can also contribute to improved fuel efficiency, leading to lower fuel bills.

Worn, under-inflated tyres, or the wrong type of tyres for your vehicle can all lead to increased fuel consumption.

After tyres reach a certain level of wear, they can let out a squealing noise and become harmful to the environment, polluting the air with rubber particles.

It is a legal requirement for your tyres to be the correct type, size and purpose for your vehicle.

You can risk three penalty points on your license and a fine of up to £2,500 per tyre if your tyres are over or under-inflated enough to be deemed unroadworthy.

What does a free tyre check include

A Vertu Motors free tyre check includes a visual inspection and assessment of general wear and damage, tread depth and tyre pressure.

Each check is carried out by our team of expert technicians, who will be able to advise if your tyres need replacing and complete a full vehicle health check (VHC) too.

During the vehicle health check our technicians will complete a comprehensive inspection of your car, and will also plug your vehicle into self-test equipment to install any software updates.

You will also receive a video of the VHC showing you the overall condition of your car, highlighting any defects found during the checks.

How long does a tyre check take?

Our free assessment takes around 20 minutes to fully inspect all tyres and complete a vehicle health check.

How can I maintain the condition of my tyres?

To keep your tyres in top condition, we recommend that you:

  • Avoid overloading your vehicle
  • Try not to mount kerbs
  • Refrain from excessive speeding or rapid braking
  • Regularly check tyre pressure, tread depth, and look for any signs of wear and damage.

Are tyres covered under warranty?

Typically, vehicle warranties do not include tyre coverage. We would always recommend taking out specialist tyre warranty when you buy a new set of tyres. Contact us today and we can help you arrange this.

Can tyres be repaired?

Tyres can be repaired if the damage is minimal, such as a small puncture. But anything bigger may result in a tyre replacement. Our skilled technicians can recommend the best course of action during your free tyre check.

Can tyres make noise?

While some noise when driving is normal, any unusual sounds or sensations should be looked into. We would recommend booking a tyre check to identify and fix any potential issues.

How are tyres measured?

To understand your tyre size, you'll need to look for a code on the sidewall of your tyres.

The first three digits represent tyre width, followed by two digits indicating height as a percentage of width.

The next letter signifies the tyre construction, usually radial. Subsequent numbers show the tyre diameter.

Meanwhile, the final figures represent load rating and speed rating, respectively.

Which tyres do I need?

You can locate your tyre information in your vehicle handbook, or inside the fuel flap. For easy reference, take a photo of the side of your tyre.

For more information on understanding the code, read the answer to our question on how tyres are measured.

Can tyres fail an MOT?

Tyres with tread depths below 1.6mm are considered illegal and will result in an MOT failure. Driving with illegal tyres may lead to licence points and a fine of up to £2,500 per tyre.

What is the size of my tyres?

Find out your tyre size from your vehicle handbook or the code on the sidewall of your tyre. This information can also be found inside the fuel flap or glove box.

Our question on how tyres are measured will give you a detailed breakdown of how to understand the code.
