If you’re travelling this Easter to see family or friends, take a few moments to check that your tyres are in good enough condition for the trip. Remember these simple checks to ensure that your tyres are safe and legal, and you’ll avoid any dangerous tyre blowouts, flat tyres or breakdowns:
1) Tread depth – is your tyre tread depth more than 1.6mm? Use a 20p coin to check the tread of your tyres – if the inner rim of the coin can be seen above the groove of your tread then it’s time for replacement tyres…
2) Tyre pressure – are your tyres properly inflated? Use a pressure gauge and check the recommended pressure in your vehicle’s user manual, on the inside of the driver door or on the inside of your fuel flap.
3) Tyre condition – look for obvious bulges, cuts or protrusions in each tyre, and check that your tyre valves are fitted securely, too.
If you’re in any doubt about the safety of your tyres this Easter holiday, please give Grippy a call on 0845 686 1100 or visit our website to book a mobile tyre fitting and we’ll have you back on the road in no time!
