The Dangers Of Part Worn Tyres

Part worn tyres may often be cheaper than your standard car tyres that you can purchase from websites such as Tyre Shopper or other tyre retailers. However, is that little bit of cost saving worth it in the long run? We don't think so- read below to find out why.

Reduced Safety Levels

Tyres are primarily the most important safety feature of your vehicle. If your tyres are not up to the job, you can cause yourself and others serious injury. Why would you take that risk? According to Tyre Safe, over 1200 road casualties are caused each year through "detective or under-inflated tyres". View the YouTube video below which highlights the dangers of buying tyres part worn. For other videos on part worn tyres please click here.

Cheaper Cost But Higher Risk

Part worn tyres will significantly reduce braking distances, due to the inferior grip levels compared to new tyres. If you are looking to buy part worn tyres we advise you to head over to our budget tyres webpage beforehand. Here you can find cheap tyres which are new, road legal and will be more safe than part worn tyres. Buying part warn tyres is a false economy- yes, they may be cheaper but they will not last as long or be as safe as a new tyre from Tyre Shopper.
