The Dangers of Worn Out Car Tyres *

You all know by now that I’m a little bit car crazy, and I’m slowly getting used to sharing a car with Mike, but that doesn’t mean I can get lapse on car safety. I may be driving his car but it’s down to the two of use to keep the car road safe and tyres healthy.

Using worn tyres is a huge cause of accidents, they cause over 10,000 every year and some of those even end in fatality so don’t become a statistic. Screw your noggin and make sure they are the safest they can be.

Typically, tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow. When did you last check your tyres?

Worn or bald tyres are not able to gain traction on snow-covered and icy roads, which can be lethal during this cold, wintery weather we are currently experiencing.

Worn tyres are more likely to lose air pressure, which impacts a car’s fuel economy, braking, and steering. Low pressure is also a major cause of blowouts, and blowouts can potentially lead to losing control of a vehicle. How many pieces of wheels have you seen on the road when driving on motorways?!

Don’t let the high cost of brand new rubber prevent you from replacing worn ones – consider high quality used brands from the likes of my tyres instead. When my car went off to scrap (more on that another day!) I had two practically brand new tyres on the rear of the car so they would have plenty of life left in them and be cheaper for you to purchase than completely brand new ones.

Ensure your tyres are road safe for that make sure to visit Point S that has cheap tyres.
