Free Tyre Safety Check at Xpress
Xpress would like to ensure that all tyres in Cornwall are both safe and legal to use. To do this we are reaching out with our completely free safety check on your tyres and wheel alignment.
We check the following:
- External damage. Cuts, lumps and bumps are often caused by an impact between the tyre and a kerb, pothole or object in the road. If your tyre has any of these symptoms then you must have the tyre checked as quickly as possible by a tyre specialist, as this sort of damage can result in sudden tyre failure.
- Pressure. Tyres that are under inflated can overheat; and over inflated tyres can lead to poor vehicle handling on the road. Over or under inflated Cornwall tyres suffer more damage than those with the correct pressure and need to be replaced more regularly. Vehicles with under-inflated tyres have increased rolling resistance that require more fuel to maintain the same speed.
- Tread depths. One of the most important things to check to make sure you are both safe and legal to drive.
- Tyre type. We make sure that you are using the correct tyres for your vehicle, driving style and typical journey.
The findings are detailed in a written report for you convenience. Hopefully you will leave with the piece of mind that you have safe tyres. If any dangers are detected then we can advise on the best tyres for you.
Usually we can do your free tyre safety check in Falmouth as a drive in service, however calling beforehand on 01736 377997 is advised.
