Farnborough Garage Owner Urges Motorists Check Tyres Before Holiday

FARNBOROUGH motorists are being urged to check their tyres to ensure their cars are roadworthy before leaving to go on holiday.

Alan Kinge who owns Ropers Tyres Farnborough on Hawley Road Blackwater, says he is so concerned about the rising number of vehicles with dangerously worn and illegal tyres, that he is offering free, no obligation safety checks.

He says many people are unaware that they are either at, or below, the legal tread depth limit and drivers are severely compromising their safety, as well as risking a fine of up to £2,500 fine plus penalty points on their licence for each offending tyre.

He said: “Now is the time to be checking your tyres especially if you are planning a long journey over the summer. Cars get packed out with people and luggage and the only point of contact between you and the road are your tyres, hence why so its important that you check your tyres to ensure they are not below the 1.6mm limit.

Extremely Dangerous To Drive On Worn Tyres
It’s extremely dangerous to drive on illegal tyres because they significantly diminish the performance of a car, effecting braking, steering and acceleration. In wet conditions, a car with worn tyres needs an additional three car lengths to stop from 50 mph than the same vehicle with brand new tyres.

We are very happy to check tyres for free and without any obligation. Call into our Farnborough Tyre Workshop and just ask for a Free Tyre Check”.
