    Just got a call from the garage..engine mount is creaking but the biggest fault is that two of the tyres that have 6mm tread on and look perfect have the inner side walls split showing the metal thread of the inside of the tyres. The guy at the garage said after he saw it he would refuse to drive the car back to me with the tyres that were on the car (I,ll post pics later) I have just seen them How the hell do you miss that when Vauxhall were meant to MOT and service the car and I,ve done 15 miles since it was done?
    Do you think I should take the tyres to VX and the service/MOT mileage and then show them and ask them how they missed it?

    May as well. You can always try to get a free service out of them as GOGW. Could have been a sticky situation...

    Where did you get the tyres from? Did Vauxhall supply and fit for you? If so then I would ask about them fitted another set free of charge as they have supplied faulty tyres to you and possibly put your life at risk...

    No the tyres were second hand with the wheels, its not so much the tyres its the fact that VX serviced and MOT,d the car and did not pick it up. Last time I use VX after the service light the engine light kept coming on took it back and they had forgotten to do something.

    I would definately go back and complain as that is a serious safety issue. If they passed an mot then that is a serious problem.

    Unusual to have two tyres with exactly same defect on them in exactly same location (inner wall) neither of which was spotted on the MOT.

    First question I would ask is how trustworthy is the garage? Is it the same place that spotted the tyre faults that MOT'd the car? next thing I would be looking for is how old the tyre are and trying to get some money back from the tyre manufacturer if it is a genuine defect and not the result of kerbing/damage etc.

    If you get no joy from VX, report the MOT station to VOSA. The testing station number is on the certificate, along with who signed it off.
