Tyres & Exhausts

Bellsburn Motor Services supply and fit good quality tyres at low prices. All leading makes of tyre are available.

We use Super Tracker wheel alignment to check alignment of all four wheels; not just the front two; giving you a safer and more comfortable ride.

Supertracker also centralises the steering wheel, not an easy task as most cars now have a drivers airbag.

We now also provide a complete exhaust replacement and repair service using the highest quality replacement parts.

Getting you safely back on the road is our highest priority, so give us a call if you need any advice or assistance

Tread Depth Law / What Your Tyres Do

Tread Depth Law

The legal minimum tread depth for car and similar tyres in the United Kingdom and throughout the European Community is 1.6mm throughout a continuous band comprising the central three quarters of the breadth of tread and round the entire outer circumference of the tyre.

The 1.6mm Law Applies To:-

Cars and passenger vehicles with up to 8 seated passengers - not including the driver.

Motor Vehicles and Light Trailers (including caravans) up to 3500 kg gross vehicle weight.

What Your Tyres Do

Your tyres, each with a contact patch on the road of about the size of a large footprint, have to provide ALL of the grip for:

Steering
Braking
Acceleration

They also improve comfort whilst carrying the weight of the vehicle. If you look after them they will work more reliably and last longer. Neglecting them could be expensive in the long run and could even cost you your life.
