Made (or already broken) any New Year’s Resolutions yet? etyres would like to suggest an easy one that all motorists should pledge to stick too, it doesn’t involve giving up things you love or cost you a small fortune either.
Make tyre maintenance a priority for 2017!
We are urging all drivers to make tyre safety checks a monthly routine, all you have to do is check the tread depths to ensure they are within the legal minimum limit of 1.6mm across the central three quarters and around the entire circumference; check they are properly inflated to the level recommended by your vehicle manufacturer and finally that there are no visible signs of damage, such as cuts, cracks or bulges.
That’s all there is to it. Yet, not only will following this routine help to keep you, your passengers and other road users safe on the roads, it will also help you save money too!
Tyres which are in good condition will last longer, because they are less likely to wear unevenly, which means you won’t have to replace them prematurely and are less susceptible to damage from potholes, etc. They will also help ensure your vehicle runs more efficiently, saving you money on fuel.
If you are not sure how to check your tyres, click here and watch our short video which shows you how to do it and why it is so important.
Also, if you regularly check your tyres you will stay on top of any problems, which again could save you money! For example, if you notice a tyre is regularly loosing air you could have a slow puncture which we can repair for just £25, saving you the expense of buying a brand new replacement!
So if you spot a problem with your tyres or want to enquire about the price of buying a new tyre, contact etyres as soon as possible. Our mobile tyre fitting service means we will come to you, saving you the time and hassle of having to go to a garage or fast fit depot.
And in the meantime, until you next need our service, we would like to take the opportunity to wish all our etyres customers a very happy New Year!
