My ancient Espace failed its MOT last month, but only due to worn out tyres, of which I was aware.
I am loath to spend €600 euros (which I don't have in any case) because new tyres coupled to my very low mileage would outlast the vehicle - and me, probably.
A chap in the village thought he had 4 second hand tyres which he is prepared to part with for a small consideration, but says that they are not exactly the same size and although he assured me they would be safe and would fit onto the rims, he wasn't sure that they would be acceptable for the MOT. I sallied forth and asked the very nice man at the MOT centre who assured me that - so far as the MOT is concerned, I could fit bicycle wheels provided they had an adequate tread.
Now I am worried that the fitting of non-standard tyres might effect any future insurance claim.
Anybody any views? I am strictly non-technical, but am aware that insurance companies throughout the world will weasle given the chance!!
