Tips to prepare your car for winter from etyres Leicester
September 17, 2014

Autumn has arrived and etyres Leicester have compiled a list of things you can do to prepare your vehicle for the winter months:

• Consider investing in a collapsible shovel and a blanket, just in case you get stranded
• Give locks and hinges a quick spray of WD40
• Have a phone charger in the car, it could be a life saver
• Check your screen wash and wipers
• Get car serviced, as the more internal gunk build up, the more work the car battery does to turn the engine over
• Make sure the car battery is in good order
• Change to winter tyres, if not check tread depth (experts recommend at least 3mm for winter driving)
• Clear leaves and gunk from the drain holes by the windscreen
• Lubricate doors to prevent sticking in the cold
• If vehicle has a tow bar, considering buying a tow rope
• Make sure you have enough fuel, especially if snow is forecasted

Check your tyre tread depths to stay safe on the roads this autumn
September 15, 2014

Temperatures are dropping, leaves are falling and autumn is starting to settle in, so now is a good time to make sure your tyres are up to the job of handling the changing weather and road conditions this will lead to.

Wet leaves on rain drench roads can be a real hazard for motorists, because they make the surface extremely slippery, which is why it is important to ensure your tyres have got plenty of tread depth so they can offer better grip.

The legal minimum tread depth limit is 1.6mm, however many motoring and safety groups recommend you consider replacing your tyres once they wear below 3mm, especially during the winter months, because all the evidence supports the fact that in the wet, the deeper the tread you have, the more grip you have.
