Whether you’re a day tripper or holiday-maker, you should be aware more tyre-related incidents happen on Britain’s roads during the summer months than at any other time of year. To keep your risks to a minimum, ensure you’ve checked your tyres before you set off.
You’re likely to be carrying more luggage and more passengers, and travelling further too. This makes it essential your car tyres are in tip-top condition.
- REMEMBER: Never change your tyre on the hard shoulder of a motorway or dual carriageway.
- Check your air pressure
- Check your tyres for no cracks, lumps or bulges
- Check your tread depth
- Check you’ve got a spare and make yourself aware of the equipment you have available
