Towable horsebox dangers

Why do towable horseboxes have no regulations or recommendations covering their tyres? In the case of the caravan club, they recommend changing caravan tyres every 5 to 7 years, due to deteriation from standing around and sun damage. Yet there does not seem to be a equestrian body of people who give recommendations as to tyre wear on horseboxes.

 

The Frost has arrived - Think about winter tyres.

Winter tyres are not just for use in snow – they are designed to cope with and improve handling in all types of poor weather conditions such as slush, ice, frost and even wet roads. In fact, anytime that the temperature dips below +7 degrees Celsius, you are better off with winter tyres. Traction, cornering stability and shorter braking distance are all key benefits experienced with the use of these products.

Tyre convictions are on the rise.

It has just been reported that the number of drivers (over 4300) successfully convicted by the courts in England & Wales has risen by 14%. The law states that you must have at least 1.6mm of tread depth over the central 3/4 of the tyre, around its entire circumference. Drivers who flout the law if convicted, can be fined upto £2500 and have 3 penalty points added to their licence per tyre. Drivers are asked to check their tyres for tread depth, pressure and general condition every month, especially as we are entering our wettest months in the UK. Not only will these checks keep you on the right side of the law, but they can also save lives.

Blow out on the M4

One of my customers had a blow out on his caravan while driving on the M4 yesterday (Hit a brick in the carriageway). Luckily I had fitted tyron bands to his wheels a few months ago, and he was able to pull the caravan safely over to the side of the road and put his spare wheel on. He has called me back out to fit a new tyre tomotrrow.

 

From Vroooooom to brummm

Talk about varience in work, last week put two tyres on a Lamborghini, then followed it up with two tyres on a Hyundai i30

 

Winter is coming

Not too many weeks until the cold wet weather returns, have you checked your tyres for the correct depth of tread. Stopping distances are greatly influenced by wet roads and tread depth, tests have proved that at 50mph, stopping distances can be increase by up to 3 car lengths. That can be the difference in you stopping in time and having an accident. If in doubt give us a call at hometyre and we will advise you on what you can do to keep safe this winter.
