Many of us have a car in the United Kingdom and we cover a significant amount of miles every single year. It is important to be safe on the road and one of the most important things on your car that you need to take care of, is the tyres. They are what allows us to stop quickly and safely in the event of an accident, and they the car firmly rooted to the road when it’s raining. Many vehicle owners neglect their tyres and forget to top them up with air occasionally and to remove any stones that might be embedded in the tyre itself.
Understandably, many of us don’t have the time or the know-how to do this ourselves and thankfully, there are businesses that can perform a tyre safely check in Hastings. There are a number of things that they can check for.
- Your tyres must have a certain depth of thread in order to be road legal and of your car is over three years old, to pass the MOT test. Your tyre safely centre will check that your tyres are good enough to be on the UK’s roads.
- The thread of your tyre might look really good, but many people fail to check out the wall of the tyre. When we parked the car, we frequently hit the wall of the tyre against the kerb. Your tyre centre will check for wear and tear.
- If when you’re driving, you are experiencing a slight vibration in the steering wheel, then this is usually a sign that your wheels need re-balancing and your local tyre centre can perform this for you.
It is important to keep yourself and your family safe on the road, and so if you haven’t done it this year already, get your free tyre safely check done today.
