What would fail the MOT although the car is 100% street legal ? Having a space saver tyre fitted
Space Savers aren't 100% street legal at all, they're for emergency use only with specific limitations imposed.
The term "space saver" was removed last year and what it would fail on now, is tyres on the same axle being different sizes (which seems fair enough to me - I certainly wouldn't present a car in that condition?)
Agreed Jim , but as long as you are using a car with a emergency spare fitted and within its limitations it is legal to use on the road but it will fail on a mot .
