MOT Testing Wheels and Tyres

Part of Pellonautocentre.com/blog   www.pellonautocentre.com/blog/?p=998

Part of a series.Hence, of explanations on how the MOT Rules works.Thus, to keep your car safe and legal.When you prepare your vehicle for the MOT test.The following advice will apply.Naturally, when dealing with wheels and tyres.Therefore, t The first thing to check are the wheels. If you have alloy wheels. Then, you should check for severe damage and cracks.So,you also must have a full set of wheel nuts fitted. If your car has steel wheels and plastic hubcaps.Then the nuts will not be checked by the tester.Because they will only be checked if you remove the hubcaps before the car is tested. If any bolts are missing, then this will result in a failure.


According to the DVLA MOT Rules, the tyre condition is critical. Testers look for any side wall damage and any cuts or damage to the tyre tread. The examiner will also check the tread depth with his official tread depth gauge, 1.6 mm across three-quarters of the tread width is the legal limit. This can be detected by a visual look at the tyres. Consequently, before you present the car for a test.Finally, tyre manufacturers build into the tyre treads a wear indicator bar.Thus, when the tyre wears down to the bar a bald patch is visible. Police officers also use these bars as away of a quick check of tyre condition.Especially, when stopping a motorist for a check over.
