Tyres, in any
weather, are essential in keeping you safe on the roads and bringing your
vehicle to a stop when you need to brake and stop quickly. Worn tyres will have
a negative effect on your stopping distance and general vehicle handling in
corners. Damaged tyres could result in a tyre rapidly deflating or even a blow-out.
Part of our free vehicle safety checks, include an inspection of your tyres overall condition, tread depth and tyre pressure.
Battery failure can happen at any time of year. If the battery power is drained it no longer has the power necessary to make the car start. In addition to this, the increased number of electrical components inside the car such as phone charges as well as using heating and lights in winter puts additional strain on the battery. It's worth noting, batteries naturally lose their charging capability over time so It's best to have them checked before you find your vehicle won't start in the morning.
