As the only part of a vehicle in contact with the road surface, tyres play a critical role in road safety. Acceleration, braking, steering and cornering all rely on the tyres’ relatively small contact area with the road surface so their correct selection, care and maintenance is essential. However, each year in the UK, more than 1200 road casualties are caused by an accident where illegal defective or under-inflated tyres are a contributory factor. – See more at:

    Like other components, a tire can lose its efficiency and serviceability after a certain point. When the tire becomes bald, it will never allow the driver to experience a smooth ride. It reduces the overall safety. In fact, driving with a worn tire can be fatal during the Jack Frost. Thus, tire maintenance and replacement are highly indispensable for safe driving. Because proper tire maintenance expands the longevity and timely replacement saves the motorist from the risk of tire breakdown and other inconveniences. Taking the safety of the operative into consideration, some safety laws have been introduced a little while back. A driver must follow these laws to remain safe at the time of uncertain road hazards.
