August has only just arrived and yet the excellent motoring expert Quentin Willson is already urging vehicle owners to start ordering their winter tyres to avoid disappointment.
Under the headline “Get to grips with my early winter warning” he spelled out his warning about tyres to readers of his Sunday Mirror motoring column.
This is what he had to say: “This is going to sound ridiculous. Order your winter tyres now. New laws in Germany mean demand for them in Europe is going to skyrocket and, like last year, suppliers will run out.
“Already the big tyre companies are telling me they’re going to be short of stock very soon. Strange, but true.”
The last two UK winters have been harsh and snow has blighted the country and brought roads to a standstill.
Already emergency services chiefs and fleet bosses around the country are organising deliveries of winter tyres in anticipation of similar weather conditions in order to keep their vehicles safe and mobile during the winter.
