Drivers should check their tyres and carry out basic routine maintenance on their cars before hitting the road for the May bank holiday weekend.
Last year around 11 million Britons made car journeys over the same weekend, so it’s got to be worth spending a few minutes giving your tyres the once over to avoid breakdown misery on the packed roads.
Tyres which are improperly inflated or have cracks or signs of other damage are more prone to blow outs and punctures and of course bald tyres are not just a safety hazard, but can also lead to fines, points on your license and increased insurance premiums.
But if you spot any potential problems early, you can avoid problems down the road.
Hopefully, a bit of air might be all you need, but if you do need a new tyre, remember etyres operate a free mobile fitting service and our prices are up to 40% cheaper than the leading high street depots.
And if you’ve got a puncture and you’re an existing etyres customer, it won’t cost you a penny for us to come out and repair it!
