Cracking the tyre code

That's why we've included these handy how2 diagrams.
How to find your tyre size
The best place to find your tyre size is on the sidewall of the tyres currently fitted to your car. Reading the markings on your tyres may look confusing, so we've included a handy diagram to help you out.
Some vehicles have different sized tyres on the front and rear so you will want to check the tyre you are replacing to ensure you get the exact match.
Top Tip: If you have a smartphone then take a quick photograph of the numbers on the side wall of your tyre. This way you’ll always have your tyre size to hand.
How to know if a puncture is repairable?
A tyre can only be repaired if it is a small puncture (less than 6 mm in diameter) in the central three quarters of the tyre marked in red on the diagram, anywhere else is deemed unsafe and marked in yellow, as it is too close to the sidewall.
If your tyre has been punctured in the yellow shaded area MMT can still help. Our experts can quickly replace your punctured tyre with a new one at very competitive prices.
How to know if a wheel needs alignment
A common sign of unbalanced wheels is a vibration in the steering wheel when driving. If your steering wheel shakes when you reach speeds of 50 to 65 miles per hour, and stops shaking at higher speeds, then you have unbalanced wheels.
If a wheel is not correctly aligned, then one side of a wheel will carry more of the vehicles weight leading to uneven wear on the tyre treads as seen in the diagram opposite
