Tyre Safety Month at Golds Garages Ford
Are your tyres ready for ACTion?
Golds Garages Ford is supporting the “Tyre Safety Month” campaign from TyreSafe this October.
There are over 37 million vehicles on the UK’s raods – but did you know, potentially one-in-four has illegal or poorly maintained tyres? So ACT now and get your tyres ready for action by carrying out these simple checks:
Correct tyre pressures reduce the risk of experiencing a rapid deflation, also ensure optimal braking and handling. Correctly inflated tyres also last longer and use less fuel. You can find the recommended pressure in your door shut, fuel filler cap or owner’s manual and you can top up with air at most service stations.
Check your tyres for any bulges, lumps or cuts and remove any stones or objects from the tread. If something does not look right, have it inspected immediately by a tyre professional. Make sure you carry out these checks once a month, and before long journeys.
Your tyre’s tread is critical for acceleration, braking, steering, and cornering. The legal minimum limit for a car tyre tread depth in the UK is 1.6mm across the central three quarters of the tread around its entire circumference.
