Trading standards is investigating after complaints about two Notts garages selling part-worn tyres in poor condition.

Experts inspected six tyres from the premises which were on sale for £25 each and found a host of problems, including an illegal puncture repair, a remould tyre dating from 1988, two tyres below the legal tread limit for tyres on sale, structural damage caused by one being driven whilst previously flat, and failure to stamp tyres as ‘part worn’ as required by UK law.

Part worn tyres can be sold with a minimum 2mm remaining tread, which is only slightly more than the legal minimum of 1.6mm.
