Tyres in Glasgow
Tyres should be your only point of contact with the road surface. If you neglect their condition, you are endangering yourself and passengers and other road users.
The fines for having worn tyres on your car are much higher than most people think. A tyre needs to have at least 1.6mm of tread across the central 75% of the tread. If your tyres fail to meet this standard, you can be fined up to £2500 per tyre and receive 3 penalty points on your licence!!!
Did you know?
- An under-inflated tyre could cost £300 a year in increased fuel consumption and reduced tyre life, as well as significantly increasing the risk of having a serious accident.
- Your braking distance with 2mm of tread is around 1.5 times longer than with a new tyre.
- There are on average ten deaths per day on UK roads that could be attributable to the sudden failure of a tyre.
For all these reasons we recommend that you allow us to check the condition of your tyres at least once a year.
