Do you need Tyron Bands in Southampton?
July 17, 2014

etyres are approved Tyron safety band fitters. Tyron bands are a potentially life saving safety device which are used on tyres to prevent a puncture or blowout.

etyres are recommended by the Caravan Club and the Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly magazine. The Caravan Club recommends Tyron bands be fitted to all caravans to prevent potential danger in the event of a tyre blowout – caravans have been known to flip over causing damage both to the caravan and the towing vehicle

Did you know Tyron bands have been used by first response vehicles and the military for years, and have now been made available to the general public?

Tyron bands can be fitted to any vehicle, however they are especially beneficial to caravans, trailers and motorhomes. As it is harder for the driver to detect a puncture early on in these vehicles, they have the potential to be more dangerous.

Tyron safety bands are a simple safety upgrade to your existing tyre and only need to be purchased once per wheel.

etyres Southampton can supply and fit Tyron bands in Southampton and surrounding areas at a time and place convenient to you, so no need to navigate your caravan to the garage.

Make sure your tyres are properly inflated
July 8, 2014

etyres Southampton recommend that tyre pressures are checked at least once every week. The reasons for this are to save on fuel, enhance road handling and steering and maximise safety.

Making sure you have the correct tyre pressure helps to save fuel by making sure the rolling resistance is set at the correct rotation of the wheel. The road handling will be compromised, and would make the car feel rather sluggish, if under-inflated and light if over-inflated and the steering will either pull to the left or right depending on which tyre was under or over-inflated. Over-inflation of tyres causes the centre part of the tread to wear out quicker than the outside edge, while under-inflation has the reverse effect whereby the outside edge of the tyre would wear out quicker than the centre.

If your tyres are not safe and legal, the safety of the occupants within the vehicle whilst moving will be compromised.

If you are in any doubt about the correct pressure required for your tyres please don’t hesitate to call etyres Southampton for expert and impartial advice.
