Part Worn = Part SAFE - Mobile Tyre Fitting in Keswick
Have you ever considered putting part worn tyres on your car? The pull might be the reduction in price, that short term saving could land you with a long-term risk.
By buying a part worn tyre, you're investing in something in which you have no idea of its history. The image shown below is a photograph I've taken myself of a tyre that has come off a car which was completely written off. To look at this tyre, there are no punctures and no visible damage. However, if you look at the small part of the car you can see in the background, it has been in an extremely severe accident.
Tread depth on Part Worn Tyres
A brand-new tyre, even a budget, will come with around 8mm of tread on it, which is significantly greater than the legal limit of 1.6mm, a part worn tyre could come with anything as low as this. Tread depth is the crucial factor in what gives the vehicle its grip to the road surface, remember your cars tyres are the ONLY point of contact with the road, meaning they are crucial in maintaining safety, handling and fuel efficiency of your vehicle.
As well as visible tread depth, mileage is another factor, something we cannot visually see a record of. With a part worn tyre, you have no clue into how many miles that tyre has already driven and how much 'time' you have lost from its use.
Once you do some simple maths and calculate the number of miles a part-worn tyre will offer you compared to a brand-new tyre, you'll soon see part-worn tyres are far from cost effective in the long-run!
