MOT Inspection

We have dedicated specialists who can pre-MOT test your car using the latest MAHA technology in accordance with current DVLA standards and regulations.
We offer two different types of service:

    This involves running your car over the rolling road to find any potential faults, with headlight alignment, shocks and brakes. The slip test is also carried out, determining the vehicles general wheel alignment.

    This includes the MAHA test lane plus a mechanic will visually inspect your vehicle to find any potential faults.

Please note MOT inspection is only available in our Mallusk depot.

Wheel Alignment

When wheel alignment is professionally conducted on your vehicle it helps it from pulling to one side or the other. Tyre life is also extended and braking performance is enhanced. You will also save money on fuel by making your car more efficient.

Our highly qualified staff ensure that your vehicle handles and performs exactly as the manufacturer intended. We also offer a bespoke adjustment service. If you have specific requirements then we can set the system to adjust your car accordingly.

Air Con Recharge

An efficient air conditioning system is important all year round. It will keep your car cool in the summer, and your windows de-misted in the winter. Car manufacturers recommend your Air-Con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. Air conditioning is not part of routine vehicle servicing.

We can check your air conditioning system's components and top up the vital liquids which are gradually lost over time. Our air conditioning anti-bacterial deep clean removes harmful bacteria for a safe, pleasant and odour-free environment. 

Please note we only offer this service in our Carrickfergus depot.

TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)

At Magowan Tyres we replace faulty, damaged or aged TPMS sensors. When the sensor is required our systems allow for cost-effective cloning and reprogramming of premium quality schrader sensors with either a solid or rubber stem.

We also service TPMS in both depots. The fitment of a new service kit includes replacing the valve stem sleeve and nut, valve cap, valve core and rubber grommet, all which help to ensure an air-tight seal. In doing this it will help extend your sensor valve life considerably.

To ensure the sensor remains in good condition, many manufacturers recommend replacement of the valve cap and core components every time a tyre is changed.

Blue Light Corghi Wheel Balancing

When a tyre is fitted to a wheel, the completed & inflated assembly will require 'balancing'. This ensures that any imbalances of mass are checked and weights applied to even this out. Failure to balance will often result in a steering wheel vibration at speed and can, over a longer period of time, cause premature wearing of not only the tyre, but other components too! Our state of the art Corghi Blue Light Balancer in Mallusk uses a video camera and advanced artificial vision technologies, to identify the balancing planes.
