With rain, sleet and snow continuing to fall, etyres Durham is urging its customers to be even more aware of the state of their tyres so they can stay safe on our roads.
Unfortunately, the weather is causing hazardous road conditions which can easily lead to accidents, whether they are caused by skidding, aquaplaning or your tyres not having enough grip which means it takes you longer to brake. However, a few simple checks to your tyres can help to reduce the chances of you being involved in an incident.
The first thing to do is make sure your tyres have plenty of tread. The minumum legal limit is 1.6mm, but safety and motoring groups recommend you seriously consider replacing your tyres when they wear below 3mm, especially during the winter months.
On vehicles equipped with tyres that have insufficient or low levels of tread depth, water between the tyres and the road surface may not be removed quickly enough. This layer of water builds up in front of the tyres until the tyre loses contact with the road surface. This loss of traction, known as aquaplaning, causes the wheels to slip and prevents the vehicle from responding to steering, braking or acceleration. As a result, the vehicle can lose control, starting to skid or spin dangerously.
Also check your tyre pressures, because incorrectly inflated tyres can affect the handling of your vehicle, including braking and cornering, and also lead to blow outs at high speed.
Finally, inspect your tyres for signs of damage such as cuts, bulges or objects embedded in the rubber. It is often the case that etyres Durham can repair a damaged tyre, but the more you drive on it the less chance we have of being able to fix it. Damaged tyres can lead to punctures and blow outs which could cause the tyre to fail catastrophically, leaving you unable to control your vehicle.
If after carrying out these checks you discover you need new tyres it does not have to cost a fortune. etyres Durham supply a wide range of new tyres to suit all budgets, including economy, mid-range and premium and our highly competitive prices are currently even lower due to our Big Tyre Sale, which means you get £25 off if you order four or more new tyres and £10 off if you buy two or three new tyres.
All our prices include a new valve, balancing, disposal of the old tyre, VAT and our free mobile fitting service, which means we come to you and fit your new tyres at your home or work at a time that suits you.
And if you suspect you have a puncture, etyres Durham will come to you and repair it as soon as possible, and we always bring along a new tyre incase it cannot be fixed, that way we get you up and running again in a matter of minutes.
