All this rain we’ve been having is creating another potential hazard for motorists – massive puddles that are disguisting potholes.
Last winter there were endless reports of car tyres bursting and suspension systems being damaged as motorists drove over massive craters in the roads.
When your’re driving on familiar roads you get to know where the potholes are and can drive around them – but if you don’t know where they are it’s hard to avoid these craters.
The important thing to remember if you do drive over one is that you should check your tyres as soon as possible for any visible signs of damage – cracks, bulges, etc.
Also be aware that the damage can cause a slow puncture, which can lead to problems down the road, because under-inflated tyres can result in a car losing its grip on the roads – especially in wet weather.
If you have suffered a punture, existing etyres customers should remember they are entitle to free puncture repairs.
And if the tyre is damaged beyond repair, etyres operates a free mobile tyre service, which means we come and fit your new tyres at your home or work and our prices are up to 40% cheaper than the leading high street depots.
