Are Tyres Checked During MOT?
During a MOT check, the chosen tester will examine the tread on the tyre to ensure it reaches at least 1.6mm deep along the central three quarters of the tread width going around the entire circumference of the tyre.
They then check the tyres are fitted to each axle, that they are of the same size, type and structure and that there aren’t any significant cuts or bulges on the tyres. Some tyre defects could cause a vehicle to fail the MOT test.
