Tyres are the vehicle’s only point of contact with the road. The actual area of contact between the car and the road through the tyres is small, roughly equivalent to four size eight men’s shoes. Bald tyres – ’slicks’ – may be fine for a race car on a dry track, but no good at all for road vehicles on a wet road surface. Tyres treads are designed to pump water from the road surface and provide maximum grip. By the time the tread is worn down to the legal limit they will be unable to perform this task efficiently and MUST be replaced.
RoSPA recommends that worn tyres are replaced with an equivalent new unit well before the legal minimum tread limit of 1.6mm is reached – ideally as soon as they reach 3mm.
There is a fact sheet on the RoSPA website discussing Tread Depth and Wet Weather Stopping Distances.
The Right Tyres for the Vehicle
Motor vehicle manufacturers choose the type, make, size, profile, load carrying capacities and speed ratings to match their vehicles, adjusting the tyre pressures to give the optimum grip, ride and handling characteristics. Only change the type of tyres on your vehicle on expert advice from the vehicle manufacturer, or tyre manufacturer.
Phil – tyres Telford writes: The snow might have melted, but it is still cold out there and it has been taking its toll on vehicle batteries.
Unfortunately, like tyres, car and van batteries are often taken for granted, even though they are only expected to last for around five years. However, with today’s modern vehicles being equipped with so many extra gadgets and functions (satnav, heated seats, etc) built in to our vehicles, it is not surprising that that they can drain down fast.
The best defence against a flat battery is to sure you pick up on the signs that it is on its last legs before it actually dies on you. Dimmed lights and a sluggish start when you turn the ignition on can be good indicators that you might need to think about ordering a replacement.
etyres Telford do not just operate a convenient mobile tyre fitting service, we also come to your home or work to fit your new battery, saving you the time and hassle of attempting to get your vehicle to a garage or auto parts shop.
For more information about ordering a new battery or any other impartial advice about tyres, you can call our National Sales Team on 0800 028 9000.
