Debunking winter tyre myths
November 14, 2014

If you are thinking about fitting winter tyres to your vehicle, it is important you know all the facts, because there are a lot of myths and misconceptions surrounding them.

For example, you might think you don’t need to fit winter tyres unless it’s snowing. This is not true. Winter tyres offer much better performance than regular tyres from the moment temperatures drop below 7C and as one tyre company commented: “A snowplough can’t clear the cold.” This is because winter tyres are manufactured with a higher silica content than other tyres, which means they remain soft and provide better traction, braking and handling, even in freezing conditions.

You might also have been persuaded that if you have a four-wheel drive vehicle you don’t need winter tyres, but again this is not correct. Four-wheel drive gets you going by making the most of tyre traction, but it doesn’t improve stopping or cornering, that comes down to tyre grip.

To find out more about the benefits of fitting winter tyres to your vehicle, click on our winter tyre section at the top of the page and read through the facts and information we have compiled.

Alternatively you can call us on 0800 028 9000 or 0333 323 9000 for a low rate from a mobile for expert and impartial advice about whether winter tyres are right for you.

If you order your winter tyres now you can take advantage of our Discount Promise which means you get £25 off when you order a set of four tyres.

Make sure your tyres don’t cause an MOT fail
October 25, 2014

Did you know that 2.2 million cars failed their MOT because of the state of their tyres last year? We hope yours wasn’t one of them and if it was we recommend you follow our advice to make sure it never happens again!

Your safety on the road is totally dependent upon the condition of your tyres so it’s vital that you check them at least once a month and not just before you take your MOT.

Tyres are so simple to check, there are three basic areas to cover:

1. Tread – tyre tread depths should also be examined to ensure they are well above the legal minimum of 1.6mm across the central three quarters of the tyres around its entire circumference

2. Pressure – tyre pressures should be checked to ensure they are in line with the vehicle manufacturers recommended settings

3. Condition – inspect your tyres for signs of damage, such as bulges, cuts or cracks. Also objects embedded in the rubber, including nails and stones, which can lead to slow punctures or blow outs at high speed.

If you discover that you need new tyres remember that etyres Consett supply and fit a wide range to suit all budgets, including economy, mid-range and all the premium brands, such as Bridgestone and Pirelli. Our free mobile tyre fitting service means we come to you and fit your new tyres or carry out a puncture repair so you don’t have to find the time to go to a garage or tyre depot. Also, our Discount Promise means our prices are always low and you receive an extra £25 off if you buy four new tyres or £10 if you order two or three tyres.
