Recommended Posts

Good day, I am in need of a spare tyre for my MOT which is coming up soon... My PO must of removed the spare before I picked the car up last month. Did not notice it until I started my MOT checks. So, if anyone in the Uxbridge any have one for sale please contact me. Thanks Felix

Agree with bibs there.

the MOT rules about spare wheels are stupid.

If you have one, it has to be legal, if you don't it's not an issue. If you are carrying some cargo which happens to be a wheel (but obviously not in where you would carry the spare) you should be OK.

So, if you drive around with a bald spare tyre with threads showing etc, you could simply take it out of the normal place, stand it by the side of the MOT testing station building and they can't do anything about it. Or you could put it inside the car (that's what a passenger seat is for isn't it?) and then it's not your spare wheel any longer.

Interesting.... Not a problem, I had my MOT done this morning and the only thing that they could find wrong was a small leak in the muffler. I check the PO's last MOT from last year and it looks like he had a hole patched, so that hole must be starting to open up again. I had plans on replacing my exhaust system this summer anyway... It was funny they had my car in the shop for 1.5 hours.... I don
