Goodgrip.co.uk launches consumer videos
Goodgrip.co.uk have released a series of tyre comparison and consumer advice videos to help UK motorists better understand the performance characteristics and differences between different types of tyres available to them.
The videos are presented by Rebecca Jackson, a professional racing driver and motoring expert who also presents review videos for carbuyer.co.uk. Rebecca tested the performance of the tyres at the winter testing facility of a major tyre manufacturer in Älvsbyn in Northern Sweden in March 2012.
The series of videos include comparisons between Winter Tyres and Summer Tyres and Premium and Budget Tyres as well as a video which aims to demonstrate the dangers of fitting Winter Tyres to only two wheels of a car.
The tests, conducted on both a frozen lake and on a winter test track, include cornering, handling and braking and are carried out using identical Volkswagen Golf cars.
“Deciding what tyres you put on your car is a very important decision which affects the safety of you and your passengers. The right tyres can help keep you safe on the road” said Rebecca Jackson.
“It is a misconception that there is not much difference between tyres of different brands or seasons; these videos will show consumers that there is a notable difference between, for example, summer and winter tyres as well as budget and premium tyres. Being able to see this with a video demonstration in real tests shows it much better than results which are presented in text or tables.”
