It’s feeling pretty chilly here in Glasgow, but it’s nowhere near as bad as it was back in the last week of December 1995 when the temperatures plummeted to -20C at the city airport.
It’s fair to say though that the cold weather will already be causing potential problems for our cars, especially in relation to the performance of the batteries and regular tyres.
It’s no secret that batteries don’t like the cold weather, it drains their power and all the extra demands we put on them to work our heaters, windscreen de-misters, seat warmers, etc all sap their energy.
The last thing you want is to end up with a flat battery on a freezing cold morning or after a hard day at work, so look out for signs that yours could be on its last legs, such as the dimming headlights when you try to start the engine, and think about replacing it before it dies completely.
Also remember that regular tyres start to harden when the temperature drops below 7C and so they do not grip the roads as well as you are used to. However, winter tyres are made using extra silica which keeps them softer and allows them to deliver much better performance when the mercury drops below 7C.
etyres Glasgow supply and fit a wide range of winter tyres to suit all budgets and our Discount Promise means you get an extra £25 off when you order a full set of four. We also supply and fit a wide range of batteries to suit all vehicles and each one comes with a three year guarantee.
However, the best thing about etyres Glasgow is that we operate a free mobile fitting service, which means we come to you and fit your tyres or battery so you don’t have to go out in the cold to find a garage!
There appear to be a lot of yellow weather warnings splashed over our area at the moment – and we’re not talking about bright sunshine!
The warnings are typically for widespread icy patches, which are likely to form on untreated surfaces following overnight rain and freezing conditions. Snow is also being predicted by the Met Office, but the immediate danger comes from icy stretches and strong winds, which lead to reduced visibilities and poor driving conditions and ultimately accidents and major travel disruption.
etyres Glasgow urge our customers to ACT now and carry out these simple checks to help their tyres cope with the hazardous driving conditions:
A is for Air. Check that your car tyres have the correct air pressure, because under-inflated tyres can affect handling and grip, potentially altering the cars behaviour on the road. Also be aware that if you are using your car to transport additional loads, such as presents or passengers, you must take that into account and ensure that your tyres are correctly adjusted for the fully laden vehicle state. Details of the correct pressures can be found in the vehicle manufacturer’s handbook, inside the fuel filler cap or on the driver’s door sill.
C is for Condition. A visual inspection of your car tyres is also needed to check their overall condition. Any objects which have become embedded in the tread should be removed. If any cuts, lumps or bulges are found it is likely the tyre made need a puncture repair or to be replaced with a brand new tyre.
T is for Tread. Probably the most important aspect of tyre safety. You must be certain that your tyres have adequate tread depth, especially before venturing out in adverse conditions such as ice, snow and heavy rain. Car tyres without enough tread face an increased risk of aquaplaning, less grip and longer stopping distances as their ability to grip the road surface is reduced. The legal minimum limit is 1.6mm and you can watch our short tyre tread depth video to see how easy it is to check.
