Lets be honest, when we are driving – how much time do we spend thinking about our tyres? Do we ever consider how much of a beating your tyres take every time you hit the M1?
Lets think about it for a second.
Your tyres take all the strain….
They are the ones taking the weight of the car, luggage, humans, and in my case – dog!
So it is important to ensure you have good tyres and keep them in good health!
As a starting point, you can book tyres online with Elite Direct Loughton Branch and avail the amazing prices that they offer. Once you have some decent wheels on your motor, make sure you know how to keep them in tip top conditions.
Don’t drive on bald tyres. The consequences are disastrous, dangerous and expensive! The legal requirement is for your tyre to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm. Under this, and you are looking at a fine of up to £2,500 and 3 points PER TYRE!
Times that by four and you are looking at a lost license and £10,000 out of pocket!
But the law is there to protect you, and others on the road. When you tread depth wears away your ability to stop safely decreases and in wet conditions that can be fatal!

You need to check it!
Over inflating wears down the tread edges and have a high risk of blowouts, and under inflated tyres can cause a quicker wear down.
So you need to make it perfect!
Check your handbook, get to a garage and make sure those tyres are going to get you all the way on your journey!
Put simply, the risk of driving on knackered tyres is too great – so don’t be that person.
It is a 5-minute job to check, and easy to fix!
