TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners
  • Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users
  • Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre

Facts & figures

TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016.

  • The total number of casualties resulting from tyre-related incidents over last five reported years* is 5,677 of which 989 people were killed or seriously injured, annually averaging 1135 and 198 respectively
  • Where casualties arise from an accident caused by a vehicle defect, tyres are the single largest contributory factor over the last five reported years*, accounting for 36% of the total
  • The estimated cost of tyre-related incidents to the economy over the last five reported years* is £416 million, averaging £83.2 million annually
  • Annually, 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects**
  • TyreSafe's survey in partnership with Highways England revealed potentially up to 10 million, or more than one-in-four cars and vans on Britain's roads, was driven with an illegal and dangerous tyre in 2016***

What our customers think

Honest, trustworthy company. They had my car all morning and had plugged it in to their computer diagnostic machine looking into a problem. Emma (receptionist) rang me., said they couldn't fix it so recommended me to a specialist, she had already contacted them and told them to expect me and DIDN'T CHARGE ME A PENNY for their own investigations. I use them often and Would use them every time !

J Jenkins - February 2016

Polite efficient trustworthy service.

Albert Nixon - December 2015

I left my house early in the morning to see I had a very flat, rear passenger side tyre. I googled local tyre companies & HiQ popped up. I called them about 9:30am & by 11am they'd sent a guy out to tske my tyre off, go back to their depot with it, repair it & return to my house. Many companies would have charged me for a new tyre, repaired my punctured one & sold it as a part worn tyre at their garage. Very honest company, you get a lot of crap service these days from companies that know you're not clued up on their particular industry but fair play to HiQ, best service I've had anywhere for a long time. Highly recommended.
