What is Tyre Safety Month?
TyreSafe is a charity that raises awareness of the importance of correct tyre maintenance and the dangers of defective and illegal tyres.
The campaign highlights the three key areas of routine tyre maintenance: air pressure, condition and tread depth, aka ACT.
Air pressure: use an accurate tyre pressure gauge to check tyres’ air pressures are at the recommended settings. Check the vehicle’s owner’s handbook or the inside of the fuel filler cap for the correct pressure data
Condition: lumps or bulges in a tyre may indicate internal damage and increase the risk of a catastrophic failure. If these, or cuts and cracks, are found while checking a tyre, the tyre may need replacing and professional advice should be sought
Tread depth: this should be checked with an accurate gauge to make sure it is above the minimum legal limit of 1.6mm. If you don’t have an accurate tread depth gauge, a 20p coin can be used as a guide to how close your tread is to the limit if you don’t have a tread depth gauge available.
With winter upon us, ensuring your vehicle is safe is our priority. Which is why we are currently offering a Free Tyre Check to all our customers.
