The importance of tyre safety

 

Keeping your eyes on your tyres

Your tyres really do matter when it comes to safety in your car. I think of them as shoes for your feet. If you don’t take care of them you are not going to travel so very far! 

It’s very easy to take our cars for granted and not think about them very much from one MOT to the next but that’s not enough, we need to always be aware of our car and its condition.

There are really good reasons for keeping your eye on the pressure of your tyres so they don’t blow.  You also need to check to be sure your tyres have enough tread so the grip is really good. And absolutely don’t put off getting small wear and tears repaired so they don’t get bigger and your tyres go flat on you at critical moments.

I have personally experienced a tyre blowing out on me at night on a major road in the USA and honestly, I have never ever been so terrified. We could have had a very, very nasty accident.

A flat tyre when you get into your car is also equally annoying.

Regaulr maintenance to check the tread is vital. It is also vital to pay  attention to your tyres  during changes in weather  as this really affects the pressure.  Amd if they are worn then they really do need to be replaced.  A service – which will check all these things on an annual basis is a really good ideas

 

Why new tyres are important?

The minimum legal tread depth is 1.5 mm across the width of the tread. This is is the legal requirement and yet some car manufacturers will recommend you replace your tyres before they wear to that extent. Do get them checked if you have any concerns at all and do take advice from an expert,
