Arnold Clark service centres across the UK are running an exciting new competition called Buy a Hankook Tyre, Win £1,000 . Customers will be entered into a draw to win £1,000 when they buy a Hankook tyre during the months of September, October and November.
There will be six winners over the course of the promotion, amounting to a total of £6,000 that is up for grabs.
Need more than one tyre? Don’t worry – Arnold Clark will give you an entry for every single tyre you purchase.
Winners will be announced on the following dates:
The promotion follows an alarming discovery made by TyreSafe, which recently found that more than a quarter of all drivers had an illegal tyre on their vehicle at the time they were replaced. This means that tyres were below the legal tread limit of 1.6mm, therefore were unsafe to use and potentially putting driver and passenger lives at risk.
‘As vehicles have become increasingly reliable, owners have become less used to performing what were once considered basic precautionary checks before setting off on a journey,’ explains Stuart Jackson, Chairman at TyreSafe. ‘Tyres too are much more technologically advanced but they do wear and can get damaged so it is down to the driver to regularly check they’re safe.’
Arnold Clark is encouraging customers to examine their tyres to assess whether they need to be replaced in order to meet the legal safety limit.
Stewart MacAulay, Arnold Clark Aftersales Director said:
‘The advantages of changing your tyres in accordance with safety regulations and the changes in weather are added safety, value for money, improved fuel economy, reduced emissions, compatibility and performance. As well as popping into your local branch, view our tyre advice page for tips on how to maintain your tyres.’
Arnold Clark service centres will be offering all customers a FREE tyre safety check in a bid to reduce the number of road accidents caused by poor tyre maintenance.
The current condition of tyres should be carefully inspected, looking out for any cuts, lumps or bulges in the tyre, which may lead to their condition being unsafe. The tread area should also be inspected for any signs of uneven wear with any embedded objects removed. Tyres deemed to be unsafe could cost you up to £2,500 per tyre, and three points on your licence if stopped by the Police.
