Making sure your tyres are safe and legal is not only imperative for road safety, it can also help to keep your insurance premiums lower and avoid losing no-claims bonuses.
Bald or improperly inflated tyres can lead to accidents and if your tyres were illegal this could allow your insurance company to refuse to pay out on a claim.
If you injure someone or end up being prosecuted, fined or receiving penalty points on your licence, this may well send your insurance premium rocketing, because you will be viewed as a high risk customer.
It is therefore imperative that you regularly check your tyres are inflated to the correct level – recommended by the vehicle manufacturer – and you have the legal minimum tread of 1.6mm.
If, after giving your tyres the once over, you discover you need a replacement, it needn’t cost a fortune.
Buying online with etyres, the UKs leading online tyres company, can save you up to 40% on the prices charged by the traditional high street tyre depots.
This is because we offer a mobile tyre fitting service where we come to a location of your choice – at home or work – to fit your tyres, so our overheads are low, because we don’t have expensive depots to run.
