MOT shocker as potholes and low profile tyres clash

Gov.uk ‘Matters of Testing’ has reported on this photo from Andy Evans revealing damage to the wheel and tyre of a BMW 5 series after impact with a pothole.

“This type of damage is becoming a more common sight particularly as more vehicles are now sporting lower profile tyres,” said Andy.

In this case the damage to the tyre and the edge of the rim gives a clear indication of the impact and prompts a closer investigation.  Less obvious cracks to the rim are easy to miss without the corresponding wheel damage to highlight the impact area.
