Safe Tyres Save Lives

You may have noticed some new advice recently from the overhead signs on the motorways reminding motorists of the importance of regular tyre checks.

“Safe Tyres Save Lives” is a new message being seen by drivers on overhead message boards in a bid to help reduce the number of dangerous tyre related incidents occurring on the UK’s road network. Between April 2013 and June 2013 a total of 3,852 tyre related incidents were reported on England’s motorways – That’s 1,284 per month or just over 42 every single day.

Audi Drivers Given The Silent Treatment !

Sometimes the simplest of ideas can prove effective and high end Audi drivers are about to benefit from the latest idea announced by Pirelli and Continental – Noise Reduction Tyre Technology.

The “Conti-Silent” and Pirelli “PNCS” (Pirelli Noise Cancelling System) both contain a foam or sponge layer which the tyre manufacturers claim can reduce interior noise between 2-9 dB on all road surfaces.

Driving performance is not affected and there is no negative influence on mileage and load/speed capability. Fitting on four positions is recommended.

Initial production covers the Audi RS6 and RS7 in the following sizes:

285/30 ZR21 100Y XL (RS6)
275/30 ZR21 98Y XL (RS7)

20 Year Old Tyre Causes Fatal Crash

A fatal coach crash, which caused the deaths of three people returning from the Bestival music festival in 2012, has been blamed on the failure of front tyre which was found to be 20 years old – two years older than the coach itself.

An inquest in to the accident found that the tyre that failed was “abnormally old” but also discovered that another tyre dated back to 2001 whilst the spare was also 14 years old. Tyre expert David Price said the tyre had been “falling apart internally” for months.

Although there are laws that apply to tread depth and visible damage to tyres there are currently no laws regarding age. Manufacturers recommend tyres should not be fitted to cars if they are 6 years old and should be replaced if they are 10 years old.

While this may be an eye opener to many, the caravan community have adopted a cautious approach to tyres for many years due to the relatively low mileage caravans tend to do over a long period of time. When tyres are fitted and stood still for long periods, exposure to the elements can “harden” the rubber causing the rubber to crack which can lead to tyre failure. Caravan users tend to change their tyres every 3-5 years regardless of tread depth – Unfortunately, these tyres can then make their way back in to the second hand tyre market and be fitted to vehicles of unsuspecting motorists.
