SEAT On Board For Tyre Safety Month
SEAT is backing October's National Tyre Safety Month with free tyre safety checks at participating dealers nationwide. The Spanish brand is backing the month-long push to improve road safety being run by TyreSafe, which is highlighting the risks posed by driving on tyres which have insufficient tread depth, making them both illegal and dangerous. SEAT is supporting the safety campaign by offering free tyre tread depth and pressure checks on all makes and models. SEAT's vehicle technicians will also offer free 32-point full vehicle health checks for those drivers who want to ensure their car is fit for the potentially gruelling winter ahead.
Nigel Griggs, Head of Aftersales at SEAT UK, said of the brand’s participation in National Tyre Safety Month: ‘The simple fact is cars have just four points of contact with the road – their tyres – and, obviously, these need to be in tip-top condition. ‘Driving on defective, excessively worn, or incorrectly inflated tyres is, potentially, highly dangerous. Here at SEAT we’re keen to do anything we can to help drivers recognise and address the risks of dangerous tyres.’ All of SEAT’s 110-plus dealers nationwide have been given the opportunity to support the campaign.
