The other day. We were honoured by the visit of a Great Looking Triumph Spitfire Car. Of course, for a set of new car tyres.

This car reminded me of a friend of mine called Peter. When we were in our early twenties.Hence, we both worked at the same tyre company in a town called Dewsbury . Thus, in the North of England. We both had different types of cars on and off.For this reason, my favourite was my Triumph Spitfire. As expected, was a white colour. But Pete bought a splendid blue Triumph Stag.

Unfortunately, after about three weeks. Peter blew up the Stags engine. “Peter was in tears”.However, after a few phone calls (non-internet in those days).Of course, he found a garage in Leeds who could repair the engine at a reasonable price. In those days, we received a bonus for each car tyre that we fitted. So the new engine took some saving up for.

Pete had to get the car to Leeds, so we borrowed a trailer from a friend that owned Plant hire business and buy all of his car tyres from us. We loaded the car onto the flat trailer and headed for Leeds. The A62 was very quiet that Saturday morning but unbeknown to Peter the pin connecting the trailer to the tyre van came out and the Stag and trailer went crashing into a nearby field and was duly written off, what a horror story, one I will never forget, certainly Pete won’t.

Peter is now the owner of a successful car tyre outlet in Huddersfield but we still have a laugh about the incident.

Bald Tyres Can KILL !

Tyre offences-Courts convict 10,500 motorists for “CAR TYRES” Offences

Tyre offences;Convictions at a four year high for “defective”car tyres

Defective car tyre convictions in England and Wales are up year on year to a four year high in 2011. Of course compared with figures from 2010. These figures were obtained by the UK tyre safety.

Tyre offences,tyre checks

Tyre offences;West Midlands Police are regularly stopping motorists at road side checks to test the cars tyres for legality.

So, organisation known as “Tyre Safe”, retrieve the information from the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice.

Incredibly, this figure is up by more than a thousand motorists. Reflecting, the determination by motorists. Of course, to keep their cars on the road. Staggeringly, even if their cars are not road worthy! Including many vehicles with defective and illegal tyres.

Drivers with defective tyres will take all kinds of risks to avoid having to buy new tyre. But if they get caught it is a warning that the courts will lay down the law.Importantly, with “heavy hands”, if they are stopped. Especially by the Thames Valley Police with defective car committing Tyre offences. Or if the illegal tyres are spotted at the scene of an accident.

We as a tyre company are very aware that drivers are under much financial restrain. Especially, in these days of recession. However, it will cost more in the long run if you are stopped and have your tyres checked at a road side police block. Importantly,it is not in your interest to hold off buying your car tyres for too long. So, the law is clamping down and fining people. Armed with a greater use of “road side checks”.Stopping and prosecuting motorists with Tyre offences for bald or faulty car tyres.

Have your car tyres checked for free

The law states that your tyres must have 1.6 mm of tread depth across ¾ of the tread width from the centre outwards. This must cover the full circumference of the car tyre. If you are not sure about what you are looking for you! Of course, you can call into your friendly tyre dealer for a free tyre check. This is important because you could face a fine of up to £2500 and have 3 penalty points deducted for each defective and Tyre offences car tyres.

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Great tyres advice

This is a great piece of advice. Hence, from the popular web site popular mechanics blog. Old ones should be replaced even though they may not be worn out. many tyres. Especially on

How Old Are Your Tyres

How Old Are Your Tyres;This caravans tyres were well out of date before they exploded

caravans have good tread but suffer cracking on the bead area . Hence, this is due to aging. Of course, the age is located on the side wall of every tyre. Hence, you should know just how Old Are Your Tyres are . Of course, by a tyre date indicator,the one in the picture says 3011.

This tyre in the picture was made on the 30th week and 11 means the year of manufacture 2011 so it was made in the 30th week of 2011 and so was 2 years old at the end of February 2013, well in date. The bead cracking on Touring Caravans tyres is due to the rays of the sun, which break down the carbon black that is part of the tyre  compound mix.

This is more of  a problem when the caravan or motor-home has been stood on a site for a long time. When i was younger my wife and i lived on a mobile home whilst our house was being built. The part worn tyres were the small trailer type  400×8 was the size. Everything was fine until we started to move the caravan, when we sold it on. Then both of them shredded into pieces. On close examination we found that the tyres had deep cracking round the bead area, due to the effects of the sun.

How Old Are Your Tyres

There is also another problem that is starting to raise its ugly head and that is that the second hand tyre dealers are not interested in How Old Are Your Tyres are that they sell to you, this is just another part of their scam.

They want you to believe that the old worthless tyres that they  are selling you are every bit as good as a brand new tyre, but please do not believe them politely move on to a reputable tyre dealer and buy a safe new tyre, you will be surprised how little difference that there is in the price, and you and your family will be safe, driving on a brand new tyre. The Michelin tyre in the image was 19 years old and had just been bought before the MOT test. The guy changed it with us for a new tyre and we damaged the tyre before scrapping it, just to make sure that it did not make its way onto the chain again.

Cheap Car Tyres online;Better quality mid-range tyres such as Kumho are now getting more popular due to the new tyre rating labels.

Cheap car tyres online

In the  online market right now. Hence, there are hundreds of brands that most people have never heard of. So names with Chinese sounding names. Thus, such as Ling Long and Jinyu  are now part of the Global tyre market.

Most of these are of course classed as cheap budget car  tyres. Consequently, most probably are at the lower end of the quality line. But there are “horses for courses” and the cheap economy ones have a role to play. As a result, in the massive tyre markets of Europe and the USA. It is however time to point out that. Because of the economic turn-down. Then the larger companies are pruning their prices. Hence, and competing with these lesser known brands.

At the moment you can buy good mid-range brands. As a result, that will probably give you better mileage for just a few pounds or dollars above the economy brand. I am thinking of names like General Tyres , an excellent tyre made here in the EU, another one is from the Japanese tyre company, and Apollo Tyres have some good online offers at the moment. So just shop around online a find some great products for just a small percentage price higher…Eric Roberts. Pellon Tyres Halifax UK.
