Did you know that nearly 10% of MOT test fails are related to tyres?* Avoid failing your next MOT test by checking that your tyres are legal, safe and roadworthy with our helpful guide!
It is easy to pick up bad habits when it comes to driving and sometimes we might not even realise that we are guilty of some of them! As careful driving improves your safety on the road and can help to prolong the life of your vehicle, why not make your New Year resolution to improve your driving skills?
Cold winter weather can put strain on car batteries, especially older batteries, so it is not surprising that they are the top cause of roadside breakdowns in winter. When temperatures drop, batteries can struggle to accept charge and this means that charging the battery takes a longer time – sometimes longer than we actually use the car for!
When temperatures drop driving conditions change and the road can become more difficult to contend with. Surfaces freeze and thaw making roads slippery and potentially dangerous – but how can winter tyres help to keep us safe on the road?
Tyres are susceptible to damage on the road and it is important that you are prepared! It is not a legal requirement to carry a spare tyre and many modern cars do not come with one as standard, but you should choose a spare tyre or alternative to keep with you in case you run in to difficulties on the road.
It is an accepted fact that your car drops in value as soon as you drive it away from the dealership, however, you can prevent how much it decreases in value by following our easy tips.
Keeping your tyres in good condition keeps you safe on the road. Here at Merityre Specialists we are dedicated to tyre safety and ensuring that our customers are aware of how to keep their tyres correctly inflated, check tread depth and look for damage. October is Tyre Safety Month and we will be offering free tyre checks at all our centres to ensure that your tyres meet legal and safety requirements.
