Car and Van Tyres

Ensuring that your tyres are in good condition and right for your car means better safety, fuel efficiency and all-round driving performance. To keep them that way, we offer a free puncture repair service on all Toyota, Fiat, Nissan and Vauxhall vehicles if we feel it's safe to do so. You don't even need to book an appointment, just pop in anytime.

The law requires that tyres fitted to your vehicle are in good condition and for each and every tyre offence there is a maximum fine of £2,500 and a compulsory driving licence endorsement of 3 penalty points.

Key Points to Bear in Mind

  • The legal minimum tyre tread depth for cars is 1.6mm in a continuous band throughout the central three-quarters of the tread width, throughout the whole of the tyre circumference (see illustration below)
  • The tyre must be suitably inflated for the purpose the vehicle is being used
  • The tyre must not have a cut, in excess of 25mm or 10% of the tyre section width whichever is the greater, which is deep enough to reach the tyre's internal structure
  • The tyre must not have a lump, bulge or tear caused by separation or partial failure of its structure
  • The tyre must not have any ply or cord exposed

It is a good idea to check the condition of your tyres regularly. Check the tread depth, tyre pressure and complete a thorough visual inspection to ensure that you are legally compliant. If you are in any doubt about the condition of your tyres, have them inspected by an expert at any of our SLM Service Outlets.

Our tyres are competitively priced and we stock a wide range  from traditional radial tyres, and a variety of tyre manufacturers to run flat tyres featuring new technology that offers improved safety and additional mobility in the event of air loss. If we don't have the precise tyre you need, we can usually get it delivered on the next day.
