BBC promotes Tyre Safety
Viewers of BBC One’s flagship magazine programme ‘The One Show’ have no excuses when it comes to tyre safety.
That’s because it has clarified the advice it originally gave in a studio presentation following a report highlighting the dangers of driving on illegal tyres, which featured TyreSafe and was aired during October’s tyre safety month.
On Monday night’s show (5th Dec), presenter Simon Boazman explained precisely to viewers what the legal limits of tyre tread depth are in the UK and how TyreSafe’s 20p check should be done.
Stuart Jackson, chairman, TyreSafe: “We applaud The One Show for again promoting tyre safety and, of course, for giving TyreSafe another mention, which can only help our cause.”

Winter van tyres
A Polish customer asked me yesterday if we could supply winter tyres for his Renault traffic van, as he was going home for christmas.. The answer is yes, of course especially if they are Dunlop and Goodyear ones
Finally its cold
Its finally gone cold in Shrewsbury and Telford..All season tyres will now be working better than their summer counterparts!
I did a free Tyre inspection on a Citreon van today ( in fact it used to belong to me!) Tyres were not an issue, there was plenty of wear left in them, The only issue was the biting cold!!
Driving in Winter
We have been advising motorists recently to prepare for winter driving such as inflating your tyres,checking that the spare is usable,locating your jack and locking wheel nut adaptor. This is all very good if you get a puncture in the daylight hours but more motorists will have problems in the dark now the clocks have changed so carry a torch with your vehicle at all times as there is little point in having all the relevant kit if you cannot see to use it. So drivers in Shrewsbury and Telford are you prepared?

I went to a customer the other day who reported he had a puncture. When I got there the tread band was hanging off, so way was that going to be ever repaired..so I fitted a michelin for him. Customers do make me chuckle some times.
