Your tyres are the only contact between your car and the road, so it’s essential you keep them in good condition. Good tyres give you better road-holding and more effective braking, especially when it’s cold and wet.
A FREE PEUGEOT Tyre Check won’t only save you a lot of trouble further down the road but could also save you a lot of money too, with EACH bald or defective tyre carrying a potential fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points.
A recent study by Confused.com*, the driver savings site, found that more than one in five motorists are driving on dangerous tyres.
The study involved spot checks on more than 1,000 vehicles in 10 cities across the UK. A fifth of vehicles checked (21%) had at least one tyre with tread below the recommended level of 3mm, whilst some 3% were found to have tread below the minimum legal limit of 1.6mm.
Further research showed that three fifths (61%) of motorists don’t know what the minimum legal tread depth is, and more than half (55%) don’t know how to check their tyres.
This can have serious consequences. As the study found, almost one in 20 UK drivers (4%) has had an accident due to defective tyres.
You should check the tyre pressure in your tyres every two weeks, before you drive on them.
Your tyres experience wear and tear like few other parts of your PEUGEOT and require regular checks.
