FREE Tyre Health Check

Book a Service Make an Enquiry

Fact : the only thing that stands between you and the road is the tyre that you choose.  Furthermore the choice of tyre and the fitting of the right tyres is only part of the story – tyres need to be regularly checked and maintained to make sure they’re performing to their maximum capacity.  If they aren’t poor performance can affect braking, steering, economy and driving performance.

How can we help you. 

Here at Farmer & Carlisle we love looking after your Toyota, but we’re even more passionate about your safety. We have a Toyota manufacturer trained team that are ready to offer you advice on what is best for your vehicle. Our team can advise on wear and tear, different brands and prices of tyre, correct fitting and maintenance. 

We have access to 1000’s of tyres.  If we don’t have the one you want in stock we can order it in for you within 24 hours.

 

What to check when it comes to tyres? 

“The legal tyre tread depth for cars in the UK and Europe is 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre, according to law. The tread must meet this minimum requirement across its complete circumference. ”  (https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/tyres/checking-tyre-tread/)

“Tyre and safety experts believe the 1.6mm legal minimum is insufficient to guarantee safety – most recommend a minimum tread depth of 3mm for tyre replacement.

Tests by UK technical organisation MIRA found that, once tyres are below 3mm, stopping distances increase dramatically. The difference in wet braking distance between a tyre worn to 3mm and one worn to 1.6mm can be as much as 44%.” (https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/tyres/checking-tyre-tread/)

If the safety risks aren’t enough then what you also need to know is that there is the risk of a £2,500 fine and three penalty points per tyre.  If all 4 are worn you could lose your license and face paying £10,000 in fines – we don’t think its worth it!
