This dry weather cannot continue for ever and unfortunately rain and dark evenings will soon be upon us. It’s time to check your tyres. It's a sobering fact to learn that on a wet road stopping distance is increased by over 44% when tyres are worn down to 1.6mm (The legal limit).
RoSPA recommend that tyres are changed at 3mm as after this depth the stopping distance increases dramatically. Visit www.rospa.com - Tyre tread depth to learn more. To compound the problem after a long dry period, wet roads are even more dangerous because of the build-up of oil and diesel deposits on the surface.
Our recommendation - Get your tyres checked today!
