Thanks DCM for a great service today. Came in with a punctured tyre, repaired and back on the road in 30 minutes.
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 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.

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.

Such a busy day on Monday 19th of Feb at DCM Blandford but I was seen and dealt with professionally and politely by the manager and his staff. The customers were happy to wait in a well organised queue until we were all seen and served as the waiting time was explained and attention given to each and every one of us. A great service and happy to see a local company so well supported. Many... Read More
What a great team , quality service and good prices , tyres and tracking done , that improved the driving experience thanks
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.
Thank you Jamie for sorting out front puncture so efficently and promptly! You are a top gentleman. Will not hesitate to use again if need be.
Fantastic service from the team.
Always helpful. I travel from Dorch to these guys as I know I can trust their work.
I appreciate all the help.
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.
Have used DCM for almost 4 years now.
Can’t fault them at all. Professional and efficient service.
Have and will continue to recommend to anyone.
Had 2 new tyres last Friday after one failed MOT. Plus was advised to get wheel balancing done. Did an excellent job & well pleased. Then drove all the way back to Audi Poole for MOT certificate sign off 👍🏻
Always excellent service, very helpful whoever I see there. Been a few times now, and the last time they were brilliant when I needed 2 new tyres.
Will always go here as I don't feel they take the mick (not to my face anyway 🤣😉). I will see them soon for a tyre check.
Ordered my tires on there website, they were fitted quickly, and re aligned my wheels, great service will definitely be returning
I've been taking my car to DCM Blandford for 14 years. They check my tyres regularly, keeping me safe. Thank you 😊
Really good service, very accommodating for having arrived there with the AA. Diligent, friendly and honest service.
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.
No problem recommending DCM Blandford for speed, reliability, professionalism
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 very quickly identified the problem, plus advised me on a potential issue on another tyre. They changed both tyres there and then, communicating with me the whole time so I felt a lot less stressed and... Read More
Nothing to much trouble for the staff, so thank you
Good service not to expensive professional and we could leave the car all-day.
Pleasant (especially as were short staffed), honest (regarding the waiting time), helpful staff. Great service!
Excellent job fitting tyres to my Toyota..
Ordered on line for 4 Nexen tyres to be fitted at 8.30..All done on time complete with tracking.
Staff courteous and competent.
Recommended DCM & Nexen tyres.
Excellent service. Managed to use there web site to find the right tyres for my car by simply putting in the registration plate then booked in a day and time slot to have them fitted. What else could you ask for. Would highly recommend.
