Protyre Supporting Tyre Safety Month With Free Tyre Inspections
As recent statistics released by TyreSafe testify, many motorists are ignoring their own safety and that of other road users by not checking the condition of the tyres on their vehicle. To help reverse this dangerous situation, in support of Tyre Safety Month all 31 Protyre outlets in the UK will be offering motorists a free five-point tyre safety check. This free offer can be taken advantage of during the entire campaign, which runs until October 31.
Almost three quarters of customers visiting a Protyre location in September had at least one badly worn or defective tyre, the company reports. The free tyre safety check will not only cover tread depth, signs of misalignment, sidewall damage and general condition, but also the vitally important area of tyre pressure. Research has shown, related Protyre, that a tyre 20 per cent under inflated will reduce tyre life by 25 per cent as well as pumping out more CO2 emissions and increasing fuel consumption. Visitors to TyreSafe website tyresafe.org can log on to obtain the correct tyre pressures for the tyres on their car.
Commenting on Tyre Safety Month, retail director at Protyre, Simon Hiorns said, ”tyres are the ultimate forgettable product and yet they are the only contact that the vehicle has with the road surface. It is, therefore, vital that they are in good condition if you want to stay safe on the road. Our five-point safety check will only take a few minutes and drivers do not have to book, just turn up at anyone of our 31 outlets and a Protyre technician will carry out the check as well as providing any safety advice required.” Locations of Protyre outlets can be found on the company’s protyre.co.uk website.
