They don’t check for punctures you do also know that the test only confirms that the car is road legal at the time you have it tested a minute later and something goes and the police pulls you up you can have a defective car. Yours passed it’s MOT but reality is you could have drove it away and killed your self or others if the tyre had blown because you knew it was faulty. Go and get it changed today. :( tyres can can blow at any time but punctures and other weakness make them more liable to go, plus it can cause poor handling etc all dangerous things. from today Sunday a underdeflated tyre is now an MOT failure.
It passed its MoT last month. I was told the tyres were good for at least 3-6 months on my low mileage per week.
What a fool!
And we are lucky you are still alive to post this deal, would have been good if the tyre had burst and you would have killed yourself or someone else. Tyres need to be looked after they are the last thing that keep you on the road, imagine what would have happened if you had had a tyre blow out at 70, and you knew the tyre was defective. Two things on a car you should never scrimp on tyres and brakes.
To be fair, one of my tyres had a slow puncture for months - every time I went to check my air pressure it was 10-15psi instead of 31, so that’s probably shredded the tyre!
