The effects of a harsh winter continue to wreak havoc on our roads in the form of a pothole epidemic.

Potholes are hard enough to swerve round when you are driving a car or van, but they are almost impossible to avoid if you are behind the wheel of a caravan or motorhome.

Driving over a pothole can cause a puncture or even a blowout. However, fitting Tyron bands to your caravan or motorhome can dramatically reduce the impact of a tyre blowout.

Tyron bands are mechanical devices which fit onto the wheel after the tyres have been fitted. In the event of a deflation or blowout the Tyron bands prevent the tyre from coming off the wheel.

It is therefore no exaggeration that Tyron bands, a British invention originally designed for, and used by, the military, are potential life-savers, providing limited run-flat capability and control in the event of a puncture or blow-out and allowing the driver to steer the vehicle to safety.

Tyron bands also help prevent wheelbox and bodywork damage caused by a flailing tyre and some insurance companies offer significant reductions in premiums for vehicles fitted with the device.

etyres are approved suppliers and fitters of Tyron bands and our convenient mobile service means you can have them fitted to your caravan or motorhome at your home or storage site, so you do not have the hassle of manoeuvring your vehicle into a cramped tyre depot.
