Chris Mullins Tyres Supports ‘Lifesaver in Your Pocket’ Campaign
Gloucester tyre retailer Chris Mullins Tyres has thrown its weight behind TyreSafe’s ‘lifesaver in your pocket’ tread depth awareness campaign this October. “Anything that helps drivers become more conscious of their tyres has to be a good thing and this campaign is ideally timed to get that message across in the run-up to winter“ said Chris Mullins, who runs a busy independent business on Gloucester’s Bristol Road. “We’ve used the TyreSafe posters and leaflets in the centre and they’ve definitely created a talking point with customers,” he added.
Mullins and his team carried out their own tread depth study earlier this summer, which showed that almost 77 per cent of the tyres removed for replacement were already worn below the 1.6 mm legal limit.
“We’re getting behind the campaign because we want Gloucester drivers to be among the safest in the country,” says Chris Mullins. “The message we’re getting over to customers is that spending five minutes now to make sure your tyres are in good shape for the winter months has to make really good sense,” he adds.
