The supermarket fuel price war is good news for vehicle owners, because it is a great way we can cap our motoring expenses, but did you know you can also slash your petrol or diesel bill by making sure your tyres are properly inflated?
Not only do correctly inflated tyres improve safety and reduce the risk of having a dangerous blowout, they also help to make your car more fuel efficient so you end up paying less at the pumps.
The biggest problem is under-inflated tyres, because they have lower rolling resistance which means a bigger force or more energy is needed to make them turn. According to research, when tyres are under-inflated by just 20 per cent (around 6psi), 3 per cent more fuel is used because the engine has to work harder and more fuel is used.
Yet this can easily be corrected by checking your tyre pressure, a quick and easy job which should be done at least once a month or before a long journey.
The correct pressures for your vehicle can normally be found in your owner’s manual. The information may also be marked on the driver’s door pillar or on the inside of the petrol flap. In most cases, two different sets of pressures are given:
• For ‘normal’ driving conditions
• For a loaded vehicle (with extra people or heavy items on board)
To check your tyre inflation pressures you will need a tyre pressure gauge or you can use the machine found at most garages and petrol stations.
Tyre pressure must be checked when the tyres are cold, this means that you have driven less than two miles, otherwise you have to wait for about 10 minutes to let the tyres cool down.
October has seen the launch of several high profile campaigns, including Stoptober and Sober October, with calls to stop smoking and drinking alcohol, but we would like to remind everyone about an equally important campaign – Tyre Safety Month.
Of course, tyre safety should be paramount all year round, but we understand that many of our customers are just too pressed for time to carry out monthly checks to make sure their tyres remain safe and legal, but that is why the TyreSafe campaign is so vital.
As we leave the summer months behind and head into winter, driving conditions are expected to get worse. It seems like a long time ago now, but 2013 was actually the wettest winter in the UK on record and although we have just one of the driest and warmest September’s on record, weather forecasters are predicting plenty of wet and windy weather over the coming weeks and so it is essential that your tyres have adequate tread depth to cope with rain-soaked roads.
If your tyres do not have at least the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6mm, your safety will be compromised, because you will probably not be able to brake, accelerate or corner properly.
It is a simple fact that the tread grooves on your tyre help to evacuate the water from the contact patch between your tyre and the road surface, allowing your car to stay rooted to the road properly. Incredibly, tyres with a decent tread depth can typically clear enough water from a wet road to fill a bucket in around 7 seconds. Take away this capability and you will end up aquaplaning, which means you lose temporary control of your vehicle. This can be a terrifying experience and not one you will ever want to repeat.
Yet by spending a few minutes checking your tread depth you can minimise the risk of aquaplaning and help to stay safe on the roads in your car. If you are not sure how to measure your tyre tread depth, click here and watch Vicki Butler Henderson demonstrate how quick and easy a task it really is.
And remember, if you need new tyres, our highly competitive prices are currently even lower thanks to our special discount, which gives you £25 off if you order four new tyres or £10 if you buy two or three new tyres.
