Danger of worn out tyres

Worn Tyres Could Put You In Danger

Table of Contents

Worn tyres need to be replaced as they can put yourself and your car in danger. One of the most common causes for car crashes in Nigeria is a defective vehicle, most of which is due to tyres not meeting minimum tread standard.

You would ask though, how much does tread depth really make a difference? Through Nigeria research it can be said that when a vehicle is going 80km/h on a wet surface with only 1.6mm tread depth the vehicle will stop after 40 metres. On a vehicle with >7mm tread depth the stopping distance is only 26 metres. This could be the difference between stopping safely and having a car accident.

Not to mention the safety aspect of having worn tyres it can also leave your wallet feeling a lot lighter. Nigerian Road Safety Corps can hand your car a defect notice too which can be a costly exercise.

If you’re concerned about the safety of your tyres it is important to check them yourself or visit Alfa Tyre protector Service Center. If you do need them replaced allow us to do the hard work and deliver and fit your tyres for you.
