During October we are proud to support the TyreSafe Campaign and are offering free tyre checks across all Richard Hardie Centres!
Why is it important to have the correct tyre pressure?
There are a number of reasons and benefits as to why you should have the correct tyre pressure including saving your fuel, better handling and braking of your car which will improve your safety and it will increase the lifespan of your tyres.
A study from TyreSafe in 2016 found Britain’s motorists could be spending up to £600 million on unnecessary fuel costs. The research also suggested that as many as 57% of car and van tyres on UK roads are driven below the recommended inflation pressure, therefore increasing fuel consumption and the increased risk of being involved in road accidents.
How often should I check my tyres?
You should check your tyre pressure at least once a month to ensure you’re prolonging the lifespan of your tyres and keeping them roadworthy. You should always check your tyres before embarking on any long road journey. The simple method to remember what to check is ACT:
• Air Pressure
• Tread Depth
So what are you waiting for, don’t have a bad air day and ACT this October. Book your free tyre check at your local Richard Hardie Centre in Ashington, Durham, Newcastle, Silverlink or Sunderland today!
Free tyre checks valid between 1st October to 31st October 2017.
