At Discount Tyres we offer a comprehensive range of car tyre brands to suit every pocket, backed up by the best trained technicians and the most up to date equipment.
The function of the tread on your tyres is to divert water from beneath the tyre to improve traction and avoid aquaplaning on wet roads. Once they are worn and the tread is down to less than 2mm it becomes unsafe to drive at speed.
It’s a legal requirement that your vehicle is fitted with the correct type and size of tyres for the vehicle type you are driving.
It’s therefore essential you fit the right type of tyres and ensure they are inflated to manufacturer’s recommended pressure.
The legal limit for minimum depth is 1.6 millimetres across the central 3/4 of the tread around the complete circumference of the tyre.
For safety reasons we recommend that you replace your tyres before the legal limit.
Many vehicle manufacturers actually recommend changing them at 3 millimetres? The reason for this is because at 1.6 millimetres in wet weather it takes an extra 2 car lengths (8 metres) to stop at 50 mph.
If you have any doubts about your tread or think that your tyres are approaching the legal limit, we offer a free tyre check service and our highly skilled technicians will carry out a full tyre inspection. They will check the general condition and ensure that the tread meets the minimum legal requirement; they will also check the pressure to ensure that it meets the manufacturer’s recommendation
We also supply Winter & All-Weather Tyres.

I used this garage for tyres before and was impressed with the professional looking workshop. The staff were friendly and the customer service was good. My girlfriend’s car needed a service and Hyundai wanted a lot. Rang these guys, they said MOT’s are £25! A full service was £155 and also the brake fluid may need changing but they’d check first. It was due to be changed so total bill was £219. Overall I’m impressed. Everything was completed to manufacturers standards and cheaper than Hyundai. Will definitely use these guys again and will recommend them to family and friends. Thanks guys. Craig Thrussell (2 weeks ago)
Boo Fie ☆☆☆☆☆ Used them for an MOT today. Very large and professional looking workshop with some very high tech wheel alignment kit in use. I was there for just over an hour so I could hear a lot of conversations and customer reactions from the waiting room (which was also clean, large and nice) Staff appeared very friendly and professional and they seem to really focus on keeping the customer happy. As an engineer myself, I am usually very critical of technical advice that I hear but these guys were spot on with everything they said. Overall very impressed.
