As the weather changes and the cold and wet conditions set in, be sure that your vehicle will be safe.
Bring your car in for your free tyre safety and winter health check.
Tyre tread depth is really important for safe driving and braking in wet weather. If the tyre is not dispersing excess water correctly, your vehicle could 'aquaplane' - that is, lose traction and be difficult to steer thus skidding across the watery road surface.
If you are worried that your tyres may be reaching the legal minimum, take this simple test.
Place a 20p coin in the main grooves of your tyre. If you can see the outer band of the 20p coin when it's placed in the tyre, then the tyres may be dangerous and illegal. Let us take a look at them for you.
Whilst your car is in the workshop on the ramp, we'll also carry out a free visual health check for you. We'll check not only the tyres, but the brake wear, antifreeze and oil levels and lights, topping up where necessary.
The difference in stopping distance between a new tyre with an 8mm tread, and a worn tyre on the 1.6mm legal limit is 11.9 metres! That's nearly 3 car lengths difference!
