Driving on dangerous tyres can be lethal
September 29, 2014

Illegal, defective or under-inflated tyres were responsible for more than 40% of vehicle defect-related deaths in 2013, which highlights why it is so important to make sure your tyres are in good condition.

By spending just a few minutes at least once a month, you could dramatically reduce your risk of being involved in a dangerous accident, so why not start getting into the habit today.

TyreSafe, the UK’s leading tyre safety organisation, has a simple acronym to motivate drivers to check their tyres and it is ACT:

Air pressures – should be checked when the tyres are cold, i.e. travelled less than two miles, against the vehicle manufacturers recommended settings to enhance performance and avoid reduced handling and grip or even a rapid deflation.

Condition – should be carefully inspected, looking out for any cuts, lumps or bulges in the tyre which can lead to slow punctures and blowouts at high speeds.

Tread – should also be inspected for any signs of uneven wear with any embedded objects removed. Tread depth is the final area of the tyre to be checked with owners advised to ensure their tyres comply with the UK’s minimum tread depth requirements of 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the breadth of the tread. If you are not sure how to check your tyre tread depth, click here and watch Vicki Butler Henderson demonstrate how easy it is in our short video.

So remember to spare some time to check the condition of your tyres – it only takes a few minutes and could end up saving your life.

Puncture repair guidelines
March 24, 2014

Here at etyres Stockport we are experiencing high levels of puncture repair enquiries coming through as a result of the current condition of our roads. There are many misconceptions surrounding when it is acceptable to carry out a puncture repair so below we have created a brief outline of the key issues factors you should look out for.

Puncture repair guidelines:

  1. Any damage to the tyre sidewall should not be repaired
  2. Any tyre that has been driven on whilst flat should be inspected internally to check for damage before being repaired. Ideally tyres should not be driven on when flat
  3. Any bulges / eggs on the tyre mean that it must be replaced. This type of damage is usually caused by impact i.e. potholes or kerbing
  4. Tears and splits should never be repaired
  5. If points 1-4 are all false the tyre may be repairable as long as the puncture falls within the repairable area gauge.

You can download a handy repairable area gauge here that will allow you to quickly see whether the puncture falls inside the legal and safe parameters.
