Are You Stopping For Winter ?. October 2nd, 2012 According to the British Tyre Manufacturers Association, During testing they found that a car braking at 60mph in wet conditions has a reduced stopping distance of 5 metres shorter with winter tyres fitted. This is due to the rubber compound being more durable under colder temperatures. As with standard tyres, the rubber hardens below 7 degrees, causing reduced grip. Your time spent in a queue A survey done by the Daily Telegraph has calculated that the average person will spend 5 or more hours waiting in a queue every month. There is even an online calculator to calculate how much it is costing you in lost time. Remember, If your on £8.50 per hour that’s £42.50 you’ve just spent in a queue trying to save a pound.

Simply insert into the main tread grooves of their car’s tyres. If the outer rim of the coin is covered by the tread, this indicates sufficient tread depth to be safe and legal.
If the outer rim of the coin is visible, it is likely you need new replacements. Why You Should Torque All Wheel Nuts Every vehicle has factory recommended torque settings, these vary from around 75nm up to 200nm for larger vehicles. If the nuts are over tightened (and many are) this will stretch and weaken the thread and bolt shaft. More often though is If you have a locking key for your alloy wheels, these are much more likely to break when attempting to undo over tightened wheel nuts, due to their design. That’s why here at CompareTyres, we show you the torque setting for your vehicle and you watch us set them correctly. Why not call us to arrange a tyre replacement and experience our best class customer care. Caravan Tyres Supplied and Fitted Do you know that caravan tyres will deteriorate with age, this happens to all tyres, it’s just that car tyres tend to use up the tread before the rubber starts to age, unlike a caravan tyre which the caravan association advise replacing them every 5 to 7 years or when you can see dry cracks forming around the tyre.
if your not sure call us for a free advice.
