Tune into TyreSafety…literally!

Tune into TyreSafety…literally!

11 Oct

By Clarissa Hearn

On Friday 12th Protyre will take to the airwaves to promote tyre safety with renowned charity TyreSafe and Who’s the Mummy blogger Sally Whittle @swhittle.

Sally took part in our 2017 Tyre Test Day at Rockingham to test part worn vs budget vs new tyres. To hear about the day, you can read her blog post.

“It was like the difference between scary, terrifying and absolutely terrifying! When you’re in the car with worn tyres, the amount that you travel is much bigger, and the skid much bigger. Trying the new tyres back to back with the budget brand made me realise how poor the budget tyres performed too.”

Tyre Safety Month is promoted by national tyre safety charity Tyre Safe. A study it ran in conjunction with Highways England in 2016 found that 27% of cars, some 10 million vehicles, are driving with at least one tyre at or below the legal tread depth of 1.6mm.
