It’s October – Check Your Tyres

October’s Tyre Safety MonthA record number of UK garages and tyre retailers have signed up to support October’s Tyre Safety Month by offering free tyre safety checks to motorists.

Safety inspections are just one part of this year’s campaign which is trying to help drivers stay safe on the roads, especially as we approach the wettest and most dangerous times of the year.

Stuart Jackson, chairman, TyreSafe.

“It’s often said that the best things in life are free, and these important safety checks really are a great example of this. We’ve devised a number of ways to help people to check their own tyres, but there really is no substitute for having a qualified professional offer their expertise and make a significant contribution to helping make our roads a safer place.”

As part of the checks, tyres will be inspected to ensure they have adequate tread depth to make them safe and legal. TyreSafe garages will also ensure tyres are inflated to the correct pressure, and free from any cuts, lumps or bulges. If you would prefer to check your own tyres, TyreSafe has developed a range of online resources including a short animation showing how to take its 20p test.

To find your nearest TyreSafe garage offering free tyre safety checks throughout October call the campaign hotline on 0845 301 6852.
