Ford Tyre Safety Month

In partnership with UK-based charity TyreSafe, Ford Service is helping raise awareness of Tyre Safety Month throughout October, with a FREE Tyre Safety Check.

In 2018, 169 people were killed or seriously injured in UK Motoring incidents where tyre-related defects were a contributory factor. The DVSA estimate that approximately 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects each year, accounting for 27.8% of all MoT failures.

TyreSafe is the UK’s charity dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of correct tyre maintenance and the dangers of defective and illegal tyres.

Ensure you book a FREE Tyre Safety Check with us this October, or alternatively you will receive this alongside any service and repair work as part of a free Ford Video Check.

Check your tyres at home

Routine tyre maintenance is quick and easy, and consists of three areas: Air Pressure, Condition and Tread Depth (ACT). You should check your tyres at least once a month and before long journeys.

Air Pressure

  • Check your tyre pressures at least once a month or before any long journeys, when the tyres are cold (before you have driven more than a couple of miles).

  • Check the pressure in ALL tyres – including the spare.

  • Remember to use an accurate and reliable pressure gauge, and replace the valve caps securely after checking the tyre pressures.

  • Tyre pressures should be increased If you are planning a journey with a full load in line with the recommendations in your owner’s manual. These can also be found inside the fuel filler cap or on the driver’s door pillar.

  • Pressures can vary depending on load, speed and types of tyres, so if you’re not sure, just ask us.

Condition

  • Give each tyre a visual inspection to ensure it is in good condition.

  • Look out for any bulges, lumps or cuts and remove any stones from the tread.

  • If something doesn’t look right, have it inspected immediately by John Grose Ford.

Tread Depth

  • The UK legal limit of tyre tread depth is 1.6mm.

  • If you are found to be driving with tyres below this limit, you could be penalised with three penalty points on your driving licence and a £2,500 fine.

  • Get a FREE tyre safety check at your local John Grose, as part of our free Ford Video Check with any service and repair work.
