Arnold Clark will be helping to keep you safe on the roads, offering a free tyre clinic at Linwood Asda on 18th and 19th October.

As part of Tyre Awareness Month, and in a bid to promote tyre safety and educate drivers about the importance of tyre maintenance, we will be dishing out free tyre checks, free tyre safety kits (containing a pressure gauge and a tread depth gauge) and useful advice.

You will also be treated to entertainment from the amazing free-running troupe, the Street Monkeys, a face painter and a balloon artist. There will be food and refreshments available, and the chance to win an iPad mini in the free prize draw.

Get directions to Linwood Asda.

Did you know…?

  • Defective tyres were a contributing factor in 28 deaths and over 1000 injuries in road accidents in 2011.
  • If the tread depth of your tyres goes below 1.6mm, you are not only risking your safety by increasing your braking distance, you are also risking three points on your licence and a £2500 fine for each illegal tyre.
  • Regular tyre pressure checks have been linked with reduced numbers of serious injuries in car crashes.
  • The Metro today reported that rubber from Russian dandelions will be tested in tyre construction, and trialled on public roads next year. This could lead to the cost of tyres being significantly reduced.

As the only part of your vehicle in constant contact with the road, your tyres are not a component you can afford to neglect. A few simple checks can ensure that you and your passengers remain safe.
