Tyre trouble – don’t cut corners!

tyre trouble

At Bushey Hall Garage we always put safety first. Our aim is to keep your motoring service and repair costs down, but still to use a quality product, fit for its purpose, every time.

Tyres are a very important part of any vehicle – they connect you to the road surface. Poor tyre quality, wrongly sized tyres, low tread and part worn varieties, could cost lives. The big question when purchasing any second hand tyre is, do you know the history of that tyre? Has it come from a vehicle involved in an accident or one which has been disposed of? Is it legal? Is it safe?

One tyre outlet which sold new and part worn tyres, was recently subject to a test purchase operation by Trading Standards after complaints were received from customers. It resulted in a nine month suspended sentence for the trader, 150 hours community service and £26,000 in fees for being found guilty of possessing and supplying dangerous products, one count of supplying an incorrectly sized spare tyre and another of providing false information.

Tyres should be checked regularly for wear, punctures need addressing without delay and reputable garages or tyre outlets used. Don’t cut corners. Your safety and that of others on the roads, depends on you making the right decisions on tyres. You have a responsibility to do so.

At Bushey Hall Garage, we will never fit a part worn tyre to your vehicle. We can repair punctures, whenever possible. We are trained to do so and have the necessary equipment. If you need a replacement tyre, we will get you a new tyre at a very good price – no hand-me-downs – and we will fit it for you in our tyre bay. Your safety is our prime concern. Call our service department on 01923 237135 for further details.
