At Ls Motor Repairs we are not just a garage that will only repair your car, we also can supply and fit tyres for as well. We also have the equipment to correctly balance your wheels after a tyre replacement. Cost of tyres vary as there are many brands and sizes to choose from, on many budget tyres we can supply, fit and balance from as little as 29.99.
They may seem like a cheap alternative, especially if your car has seen better days, but part worn tyres are a potential accident in the making.
Tyres are extremely important in keeping you and fellow motorists safe on the road. They are the only part of the car in contact with the road and so a lot relies on their condition
.Did you know: each year in the UK more than 1,200 motorists are injured in an accident where illegal, defective or under-inflated tyres are a contributory factor (source: TyreSafe).
In the UK it is not illegal to sell a part worn tyre. Legislation has been put in place to permit the sale, subject to the tyres meeting a number of strict criteria. However, the number of part worn tyres sold illegally is worrying and poses a serious safety risk to motorists.
A campaign carried out by TyreSafe discovered that 98% of part worn tyres they checked were sold illegally - with 34% of the tyre containing dangerous forms of damage.
At Ls Motor Repairs we feel very strongly on this subject and actively encourage motorists to purchase new tyres.
