Safety Events - Tyre Safety
Locals get to grips with tyre safety.
A community tyre safety day organised by Falken Tyre UK Performance Partner, Hi-Performance Auto Centre hosted a free tyre checking service and advice stand at Tesco Sunderland this July.
The consumer safety event over a day saw Hi-Performance check over 55 cars, advising on tread depth, age and overall tyre condition to shoppers who took advantage of the free tyre checking service.
'Correct tyre care and maintenance are critical for your safety, no matter what type of vehicle you are driving. Keeping local residents safer on the roads is at the forefront of our business, and we wanted to get out into the community to highlight how easy it is to check tyres, what to look out for and how to maintain tyres - safely. We’re delighted with the positive response we’ve had from Tesco shoppers. Explains Graham at Hi-Performance.
From the tyres checked, we saw a number that required immediate attention, with some vehicles having tyres that were running close to, or even over the legal limit of 1.6mm. This shows how important it is to regularly check tyres to ensure they are safe and legal, especially considering how unreliable the British weather can be!
