I would agree that if I found a sidewall cut it’s change tyre time.Thanks. That is the Guidance which is as good as the extract from the actual MOT Manual that I posted in post #36. However strangely both seem to indicate a pass under the following conditions when in my opinion it should be a fail;
Before failing a cut, you must make sure it’s the cords that you can feel not a foreign object. If you’re not sure, then you should pass and advise.
When assessing lumps or bulges in a radial ply tyre, care should be taken to distinguish between normal undulations in the carcass, resulting from manufacturing, and lumps or bulges caused by structural deterioration.
