The winter weather is really starting to dig in, the Beast from the East and the Bomb are just the tip of the iceberg, no pun intended. So if you haven’t done it already, now is the time to ask yourself how your tyres are looking?
If they are worn or damaged in any way, the chances are they will not hold up well when you venture out on the roads in hazardous driving conditions, such as heavy rain.
The minimum legal tread depth limit is 1.6mm and you can find out if yours are within the limit with a quick inspection. Just watch this short video to see exactly what to look for. However, it is worth pointing out that motoring and safety groups, including the AA, recommend you seriously consider replacing them when they wear below 3mm, because after this their performance starts to deteriorate and they offer less grip.
Also be sure to check tyres for any bulges, cuts or tears because these can lead to slow punctures and blowouts, which could leave you stranded, frustrated and out of pocket if you have to pay for breakdown recovery.
Plus if your tyres don’t have the required 1.6mm tread depth – and if you are involved in an accident, you can fined up to £2,500 and three points for every illegal tyre on your vehicle, according to the Highways Agency.
So don’t get caught out in the cold this winter because your tyres aren’t safe and legal – check them out now and contact etyres Consett if you need replacements or a puncture repair. etyres Consett supply and fit a wide range of tyres to suit all vehicles and budgets are our highly competitive prices are always low thanks to our Discount Promise, which means you get £25 off if you buy four new tyres or £10 if you order two or three tyres.
If you need new tyres in the next few weeks and want to keep the cost down, etyres Consett strongly urge you not to opt for part-worn tyres because you think they will save you money.
The fact is, they might be a few pounds cheaper than brand new tyres, but you could be exposing yourself to frightening levels of risk if you fit secondhand tyres, especially at the start of the winter months, because many of them fail to meet minimum safety standards. This is not scare-mongering, it is the finding of a nationwide investigation carried out by TyreSafe, the UKs leading tyre safety group.
It found that more than a third (34 per cent) of the 817 part worn tyres bought in its mystery shopper exercises across the country during the last year, contained faults or damage which meant that they should not have been offered for sale.
The faults found by the independent inspectors assessing the tyres included dangerous puncture repairs, exposed cords, damaged beads, penetration damage and evidence of being run under-inflated, all items which could pose a potential safety hazard to the user and other motorists.
And if you still think it’s worth the risk because you can save a lot of money, consider this: a previous TyreSafe study found that not only were new tyres safer, they also offered better value as the cost per useable mm of tread for part worn tyres was £6.33 whereas the equivalent cost for a new tyre was 16 per cent less, at just £5.32 per mm.
etyres Consett supply and fit a wide range of tyres to suit all budgets, and our economy range are very popular with customers who are looking for value for money, but still want a tyre that is safe and offers sound levels of performance in wet braking and handling.
Our Discount Promise also means our highly competitive prices are always low because you get an extra £25 off when you order four tyres or £10 if you buy two or three new tyres.
