Tyre damage – be on the look out

This time of year, you need to be even more careful than normal when driving. There is often ice on the roads, especially in the early morning and later on in the evening. This can make for quite dangerous driving conditions so you need to ensure that you have done everything possible to try and make sure you are as safe as you can be. 

Tyre damage can happen at any time and can make your vehicle very unsafe, which is why it is vital to check them over carefully as often as you can. Ideally have a quick look around your tyres before setting of on any journey but every couple of weeks give them a better inspection to try and spot any damage you may of previously missed. You may have noticed that your tyres have not been gripping the road as well or that you have had the tyres on the car for some time now and they appear to have worn down or even perished. If this is the case then you need to get them changed as soon as possible.

The cost of tyres varies greatly depending on the size, make and also whether you have new or part worns so a bit of shopping around is needed if you want to secure the best price.
