When is a puncture not a puncture?

I went to a customer over the weekend who said he had a puncture and had driven about 10 miles because he thought he had run flats on his Mini.. How wrong could he of been.. all that was left were two beads.. the tyres were not Run flats.. The moral please check your tyres and make sure you know what's on your car and their condition.

Aston Martin

Off to do an Aston Martin Vanquish... but not for a Mr Bond.

 

Wet Weather braking

Did you know that it takes at least 30% longer to stop in wet weather than it does in the dry? This distance can be further increased if your tyres are worn (although) they may still be legal.

Why not let us check and inspect your tyres and will give an unbiased report on their condition

 

Easter traffic

A busy weekend on the roads with all the caravans around the Shrewsbury bypass. I wonder how many had checked their tyres before departing? The caravan club recommend changing caravan tyres every 5 years as a maximum irrespective of wear. Also I wondered whether any of those caravans had Tyron bands fitted?

 

Happy Easter Holidays

Wishing all our Telford and Shrewsbury customers both old and new, a happy Easter. Please check your tyres condition and pressures if you are going on a long journey to see friend and family over the holiday weekend.

Fuel prices on the rise

With fuel prices reaching record levels in Shrewsbury, Hometyre is reminding motorists that correctly inflated tyres have the extra benefit of increasing a car’s fuel efficiency as well as providing maximum safety and prolonging tyre life. With UK motorists are now paying on average a staggering 144.67p per litre for diesel, higher than the previous record during last year’s ‘Arab Spring’, and according to industry analysts a new high of 137.44p per litre for unleaded petrol, it needn’t be all doom and gloom. TyreSafe, the UK’s leading tyre safety organisation, pointed out that apart from improved safety and the reduced risk of experiencing a dangerous blowout, correctly inflated tyres provide lower running costs. This is because the rolling resistance of an under-inflated tyre increases meaning that a bigger force or more energy is needed to make it turn. Indeed, calculations suggest that when tyres are under-inflated by just 20 per cent (around 6psi), 3 per cent more fuel is used. That, it is estimated in the UK could be as much as £337 million of fuel in wasted each year as a result of driving on under-inflated tyres
