TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners
  • Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users
  • Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre

Facts & figures

TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016.

  • Where casualties arise from an accident caused by a vehicle defect, tyres are the single largest contributory factor over the last five reported years*, accounting for 36% of the total
  • The estimated cost of tyre-related incidents to the economy over the last five reported years* is £416 million, averaging £83.2 million annually
  • Annually, 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects**

What our customers think

Turned up short notice to get 2 225/45/R17 Falken 510s fitted to my SAAB 93, prior to its MOT the next day. The car was on the ramp, tyres changed and back out again within 15 minutes. Incredibly quick and very friendly service. Even got an free Easter Egg for my custom! Prices were incredibly reasonable in comparison to the competition. I can't recommend Sandhurst Tyres highly enough. They'll definitely be my first port of call for my next tyre change!

Mr King - March 2018

Sandhurst Motors have been looking after my succession of VW Golfs for 20 years or so now and I have to say that, without exception, I have been impressed and grateful for the excellent service I have received. Apart from the usual MOTs and services, several times I have been in a situation when my car has seemed to be in a dire state. Each time, a mechanic has diagnosed the problem immediately, without making me wait for an appointment. On the last two such occasions, the problem was fixed straight after the diagnosis and without payment. What I really like is that, although I am entirely ignorant about anything mechanical, including cars, whoever I talk to at this place explains everything to me clearly and patiently without making me feel stupid; Trevor and all the members of staff are unfailingly kind, good humoured and helpful. I think that's brilliant!
