Here is a really simple video on how to check your car tyres
The tyres on your vehicle are the only part of your vehicle in contact with the road.
Therefore, they play a key role in vehicle safety.
Between the years 2007 – 2012, An Garda Síochána reported tyre defects as a factor in 172 collisions.
Some of these collisions were fatal, others resulted in serious and minor injuries.
Dangers of using sub-standard or incorrect tyres include:
- Reduced road handling – you have less control of your vehicle
- Increased braking distances – it could take up to twice the normal braking distance to stop
- Aquaplaning – where your tyres lose grip on the road in wet conditions
- Blow-outs – resulting in loss of control of the vehicle
