What better way to get ready for winter than by fitting a brand new set of tyres to your car? With plenty of tread depth, you can benefit from maximum safety and control in the wet with a reduced risk of aquaplaning. And after last year’s record wet winter, who knows what’s in store for us this year.
So to celebrate October’s Tyre Safety Month, we’re offering you the chance to win a brand new set of tyres, including fitting (up to the value of £300) simply by sending us a TyreSelfie – a picture of you taking the 20p test on your car.
To take the 20p test, simply place a 20p coin into the main tread grooves of your car’s tyres. If the outer band of the coin is obscured when inserted, then your tyres are above the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm. However, if the outer band of the coin is visible when inserted then they may be unsafe or illegal and should be inspected immediately by a tyre professional.
To enter the competition, simply upload your picture of you taking the 20p test to the Photo Contest App on our Facebook page before 5pm on Friday 31st October.
Winners will be picked at random and notified by Friday 7th November.
And remember, even if you don’t win, by taking the 20p test you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your tyres will be able to cope with any winter downpours.
