Tyres Blandford Forum

You must maintain your vehicle’s tyres since they establish a secure bond between your car and the road. Your tyres keep you and other road users safe!

There is no room for neglect when it comes to your tyres. If you have inadequate tread depth, you will have a longer stopping distance and are more likely to be involved in an accident. It could also land you in trouble with the police, resulting in hefty fines.

Keeping you safe is one of our top priorities at DCM Autocentres. With our expert technicians, you can expect excellent quality and outstanding value. Using our expertise, skills, and technical knowledge, we can assess the safety of your tyres. In the event they need to be replaced, we will do so.

What size tyres do I need?

Checking the sidewall of your current tyres is one of the easiest ways to determine tyre size. However, some vehicles, like BMWs or Mercedes, may use different-size tyres on the front and rear.

Still not sure? Let our experts take a look at it.

What are the minimum tread requirements? And how do I measure this?

There is a minimum legal requirement for tyre tread depth in the UK of 1.6mm. You can use a gauge to measure this, but 20p coins are the easiest way to measure the depth.

In the tyre with the least tread, place the 20p coin. Check your tyres immediately if the outer rim of the coin is visible.

In addition to being extremely dangerous, driving with less than this is illegal. Don’t put yourself at risk of fines or accidents.

My wheel has been damaged. Would you be able to fix it?

How to check your tyre pressure?

Usually, inside the driver’s door or on your vehicle’s fuel cap is where you can find the recommended tyre pressure for your vehicle.

First, ensure all dust caps are removed from your vehicle. You can then find the current pressure by putting a pressure gauge on a tyre valve.

You should compare your actual reading with the recommended pressure levels. Ensure that the air machine is set to the correct pressure and start inflating your tyres.

Would you still like some help? Give our team a call today; we’re always happy to help.

wheel alignment blandford forum

Is wheel alignment necessary?

Aligning your wheels ensures that your tyres are touching the road at the correct angle, pointing straight and centred.

Wheels can become misaligned due to bumps in the road, potholes, speed bumps, and kerbs. In turn, this may lead to uneven tyre wear and reduced handling, which puts your safety and other road users at risk.

Signs that my alignment is incorrect

When you drive, you may notice that your vehicle pulls in one direction if your alignment is off. You may also experience reduced handling.

Make sure you don’t endanger yourself or others. Book your Blandford Forum wheel alignment checkup with DCM Autocentres today.

    These guys were our saviours on Friday when we had a flat tyre. They mounted the spare, checked the pressures and then gave advice on where to find a replacement as they didn't stick our size. When I went to settle up they refused to take payment. Friendly, helpful staff who made our problem disappear.

    I come to these guys whenever I need to have my tyres checked or changed. They are always very busy but still manage to be cheerful. Sometimes I have had to wait so I always make sure that I have something to read/do. They work so hard that at times they forget to eat or drink.

    It can be daunting as a woman on her own going to sort out new tyres, I need not to have worried.The guys were so friendly and helpful, and fully explained what was needed at a fair price, I was soon safely on my way and will certainly use them again. It was the first time I had been there as I am new to the area.

    I love DCM tyres. Prices aren't that bad. The guys here previously have gone out of their way to find me a tyre that would be delivered before my holiday when I had a screw go through my tyre right before I was due to leave! Exceptional service, I go here for my tyres every time.

    Got to the end of a long day and then informed by a neighbour my tyre had been going flat in the carpark all day. I rang DCM and they said they could see me immediately.

They changed both tyres there and then, communicating with me the whole time so I felt a lot less stressed and... Read More
