WIDNES PRAISE

“Great service!  Your price was the best I found online, but that is not why I ordered my tyres from you.  The real reason is I needed to get from St Helens to Manchester for a meeting by 11am, so even though I ordered yesterday lunchtime, your fitter made me the first job of his day so I was on the road by 9.30am.  Everyone should use etyres!”

Find out how a 20p coin can reveal if your car tyres are safe and legal
March 25, 2013

Ray – etyres Widnes writes: A lot of motorists cannot tell when their car tyres need renewing, some only find out when their vehicle fails an MOT.  But there is a simple little test you can carry out to discover whether your tyres are bald.

By law, car tyres must have a tread depth of at least 1.6mm across three quarters of the tread width, around the full circumference.

So to find out if your car tyres have got plenty of tread depth insert a 20p coin into the main tread grooves of your tyre.  If the outer rim of the coin is covered by the tread, this indicates sufficient tread depth to be safe and legal and you can put car tyre replacement on the back burner.

However, if the outer rim of the coin is visible, it is likely you have worn out tyres and you need think about car tyre replacement.

There is no excuse for driving on worn out tyres, because car tyre replacement can be simple and replacing car tyres does not have to cost a fortune.

etyres supply and fit a wide range of tyres to suit all budgets and if you need new tyres we make  replacement convenient and hassle-free with our mobile fitting service at your home or work.

If you need advice about car tyre replacement you can call our National Sales Team on 0800 028 9000.

Ray – tyres Widnes writes: Did you know that an estimated 1 million motorists will find themselves in need of roadside assistance in the winter months between December and February – and most of them will have suffered from a flat car battery?

If you don’t want to be one of them you can begin by making sure you are aware of the signs that your battery may be on its last legs, for instance, sluggish starting and dimmed lights when you turn the ignition should sound alarm bells.

Most of us take our batteries for granted, but they only have a life span of around five years and these days, heated seats and windscreens, even satnavs, put extra demands on a battery’s life.

If you do need a new battery, remember etyres offer a convenient fitting service at your home or work for batteries as well as tyres.
