Tyres

Correct tyres are essential for getting the best out of your vehicle. What's more, they're arguably the most important safety feature. Over 3.5 million British motorists are driving on illegal tyres. As the sole point of contact between your car and the road, it is important to check your tyres regularly.

Even though the legal limit for your tread depth is 1.6mm, experts recommend that you change your tyres when the tread reaches 3mm. There is an 8m difference in stopping distance when travelling at 50mph in wet conditions between tyres with a 3mm tread and 1.6mm.

At Now Vauxhall MasterFit we have a large range of tyres in stock and no appointment is necessary for tyre changes and replacements. As part of our Tyre Price Promise we won't be beaten on price and will match any like-for-like quote. Our Now Vauxhall MasterFit trained technicians will fit your tyres to the highest standards of quality and safety.

Our Tyre Price Promise is only available on selected leading brands – Continental, Pirelli, Dunlop, Michelin and Firestone - at participating Vauxhall MasterFit Retailers, subject to availability.

What is covered in an MOT test?

Under inflated tyres create more resistance when your car is moving, which means your engine has to work harder, so more fuel is used and more CO2 emissions are produced. Simply check and adjust your tyre pressures regularly and also before long journeys. This will also help to increase the life of your tyres. Under inflated tyres increase CO2 but over inflated tyres can be unsafe so check your car manual for the correct tyre pressures. Remember, a car with a heavier load may need different air pressure in the tyres.
