Etyres urges customers to check motorhome and caravan tyres
Etyres wants to ensure customers donít set off on their summer holidays without checking their tyres first.
With the recent UK heatwave, plenty of lucky motorhome owners are sure to be heading off on their summer getaways soon. However, mobile tyre fitting franchise Etyres is urging holidaymakers to check the tyres of their motorhomes or caravans before setting off on their long journeys, to make sure they are still road legal.
Unlike car tyres, which need to be replaced every 10 years regardless of how worn down they are, motorhome or caravan tyres should be replaced every five. Etyres advises regular tyre changes because motorhomes often stay parked in one position for most of the year, which can lead to bald spots and deterioration from constant sunlight or chemicals on drives and in your garages.
If tyres are more worn or damaged beyond than the legal limit, the owner could be risking a fine of up to £2,500 per tyre, so the mobile tyre fitting franchiseís advice should be taken by holidaymakers looking to hold on to their cash. Tyres that are excessively worn are also at greater risk of causing an accident. Though even if tyres are nowhere near the minimum tread of 1.6mm, itís a good idea to replace them often.
However, the time before a holiday can be stressful and it can feel like there arenít enough hours in the day to get everything done. So Etyresí mobile tyre fitting service is a great solution for busy holidaymakers, meaning they donít have to take time out of their day to drive to a tyre replacement garage. And, if disaster strikes while theyíre away, Etyresí 22 years of service and hundreds of locations across the UK means vehicles can get back on the road quickly.
Etyres also fits Tyron Safety Bands, which can greatly reduce the impact of a punctured or burst tyre allowing drivers to steer their vehicle to safety instead of causing an accident.
