Take charge of your battery this winter
October 25, 2014

The cold and wet weather has really arrived now and if you are feeling it, spare a thought for your poor old car battery, especially if it is more than five years old.

Low temperatures are tough on car batteries, especially when you add up all the additional demands placed on them during the winter months it is no wonder so many just die and leave vehicle owners stranded. Imagine how much power the lights, heater, even the heated windscreens and seat warmers, drain from the battery, not to mention the satnav’s and smart phones.

The shelf-life for a car battery is around five years and after that it cannot be relied upon to get vehicles started on cold mornings. There are tell-tale signs to look out for that indicate a car battery is on its last legs, for example, sluggish starting and dimmer lights when the engine turns over, both of which should prompt motorists to order a replacement.

etyres South Shields also recommend you follow these steps to give your battery a boost during the cold winter months:

* If your engine does not start first time, operate the starter in ten second bursts and then turn the ignition off for 30 seconds, before trying again

* If your car won’t start or feels lethargic when you turn the key, then you could well have a flat battery. The way to check is by switching on your headlights. If they’re weak or they don’t work, then your car battery is flat

* Turn off any electrical accessories as soon as they are no longer required. Heated rear windscreens tend to work in conjunction with heated mirrors and consume a lot of electrical energy

etyres South Shields supply and fit a wide range of batteries to suit every vehicle and our highly competitive prices include fitting, disposal of the old battery and VAT – plus every car battery we supply and fit comes with a three year guarantee.

Our customers also benefit from our mobile service which means you can have your new car battery fitted at your home or work – which is even more convenient if the vehicle will not start due to a flat battery!

Devastating effects of illegal tyres brought close to home
October 8, 2014

The consequences of driving with illegal and under-inflated tyres were really brought home with the news that they were a ‘major factor’ in a tragic accident on the A59 between Silsden and South Shields.

At least three of the tyres on the Volkswagon Bora involved in the fatal crash were under the recommended level of pressure and it was likely that the fourth was too, but that had deflated on impact. The front two tyres were also illegal in terms of tread and were “highly dangerous”, a Skipton inquest heard recently.

Added to this was the fact that the road was wet at the time, which always makes driving conditions potentially more dangerous.

Making sure your tyres are properly inflated and have plenty of tread really is vitally important, especially as we head into winter when the weather can lead to hazardous driving conditions. It only takes a few minutes to check your tyres and if you are putting off replacing them because of the expense it is worth asking yourself if you can really afford not to have have safe tyres.

etyres Newcastle supply and fit a wide range of new tyres to suit all budgets, including economy and mid-range, as well as all the premium brands all at highly competitive prices. A new tyre gives you 8mm of tread and helps you stay in control of your vehicle, especially on wet roads.

Also, if you maintain your tyres, make sure they are always correctly inflated, are wearing evenly and don’t have any objects like stones or nails embedded in the rubber, they can last for years, which gives you peace of mind on the roads.

Of course, it is important to get the choose the right tyres for your vehicle, driving style and budget and etyres South Shieds are happy to offer you as much expert and impartial advice as you need to help you make the right decision.
