Ray – etyres St Helens writes: A lot of motorists make the mistake of assuming that plenty of grip is only really important on their car tyres when the roads are icy – please don’t make this mistake yourself.
Heavy rain and showers can also leave roads dangerously slippery, which is why it is always a good idea to make sure your car tyres have got at least the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6mm – although during the winter months leading motoring and safety groups recommend changing your tyres when they go below 3mm.
Tyres without adequate tread depth may suffer from a loss of grip or traction leading to longer stopping distances, reduced handling and an increased risk of aquaplaning.
The simplest way to check the tread depth on your tyres is to take the 20p test – simply insert the coin into the main tread grooves of the car tyres and if the outer rim of the coin is covered by the tread, this indicates sufficient tread depth to be safe and legal.
If the outer rim of the coin is visible, it is likely the tyres need to be replaced, so give us a call and etyres St Helens will make sure you get the right car tyres to suit your driving style and budget.
Ray – tyres St Helens writes: We have had our fair share of extreme weather so far this year, with torrential rain and heavy snowfalls, and we are not out of the woods yet – so it is well worth remembering that your tyres should be a high priority at the moment.
At the very least you should make sure your tyres are properly inflated to the level required by the vehicle manufacturer and that they have got plenty of tread depth.
UK legislation requires tyres to have a minimum of 1.6mm of tread depth across the central three quarters of the tyre, around its entire circumference. To check this out all you need to do is insert a 20p coin into the main grooves of the tyre. If the outer band of the 20p is visible when inserted, then the tyre may not have sufficient depth and may well need replacing as soon as possible.
At the same time, it is also sensible to carry out a visual inspection of the tyre to check its overall condition. Any objects which have become embedded in the tread should be removed. Cuts, lumps or bulges are all signs that the tyre could be damaged and may need replacing or repairing.
Finally, if you want to give yourself even more peace of mind when you set out on the roads, you might want to consider fitting winter tyres. We are winter tyre experts and our etyres fitters are experiencing heavy demand to supply and fit winter tyres. If you are considering making the switch we are advising our customers to contact our National Sales Team on 0800 028 9000 for the latest stock availability and best prices.
