Thousands of motorists are putting theirs and other road users lives at risk by driving on illegal and dangerous part worn tyres, according to a shocking new investigation.
More than a third (34 per cent) of the 817 part worn tyres bought in nationwide mystery shopper exercise co-ordinated by TyreSafe and the National Tyre Distributors Association, in conjunction with various Trading Standards offices and local councils, contained faults or damage which meant that they should not have been offered for sale.
Among the faults found by the independent inspectors assessing the tyres were 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.
We understand that some drivers are tempted to buy secondhand tyres because they believe they are much, much cheaper than brand new tyres, but this is not always the case.
etyres Durham supply and fit a wide range of tyres to suit all budgets, including economy, mid-range and all the premium brands, and some of our cheaper tyres are only marginally more expensive than part worn tyres, but are far safer and offer much better value for money. A previous study by TyreSafe 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.

Our highly competitive prices are always low and our Discount Promise means you get £25 off if you buy four new tyres or £10 if you order two or three new tyres.
Nearly three quarters of drivers across the UK are potentially unprepared for any heavy rainfall this winter and at an increased risk of being involved in an accident according to a new survey. So the question is: are you one of them or are you one of the 27 percent of drivers who say that they had checked their tyre tread depth in the last month?
If your tyres haven’t got adequate tyre tread depth, your car may be unable to cope properly in wet conditions, causing problems such as longer stopping distances, loss of grip and even an increased risk of aquaplaning.
The fact that last winter was the wettest ever on record should also prompt you to make sure your tyres are ready for whatever the weather has to throw at them during the next six months, which is why it is important to check them at least once a month.
TyreSafe, which carried out the survey, recommend you carry out the 20p test to check your tread depths. All you have to do is place the coin into the main tread grooves of each of your tyres tyre. If the outer band of the 20p coin is visible when inserted, then your tyre tread depth is above the legal minimum limit. However, if the outer band is visible when inserted into the tread, it is highly likely that your tyres need replacing as soon as possible.
If you need new tyres, remember etyres Durham will come to you and fit your new tyres at your home or work at a time that suits you.
