Part worn tyres are Dangerous tyres
This article. Hence, in the Cumnock Chronicle . Is of no surprise to all of us genuine tyre dealers. As a result, we are very concerned .About all these back street part worn tyre shops that have sprung up.
Especially, in the past couple of years, making some areas look like the back streets of Cairo, (this is what i saw on a recent visit to Egypt),there was a tyre shop on every corner and were inflating tyres with old foot pumps.
Since I did this article their has been a rise in the number of prosecutions for Dangerous tyres against part worn tyre dealers who sell Dangerous tyres that do not come under the law, some dealers do act within the law and i have nothing against this but it is the unscrupulous dealers that should be targeted.

I am amazed that people in a civilised country like ours would think that they could buy a decent good tyre for only £20 ?. Local authorities throughout the UK and the USA are starting to clamp down on the illegal sale of these dangerous tyres, drivers are not aware that they may be driving their cars with the time bomb of part worn tyres fitted to their vehicles.
