Prestige and Performance Tyre Centre St Helens
Tyre offences such as a tyre being less than 1.6mm across the central 75% of the tread are punishable by a fine of up to £2500 per tyre and 3 penalty points.
Tyres are your only point of contact with the road surface. If you neglect the condition of your tyres you are endangering yourself and passengers and other road users. We recommend that you allow us to check the condition of your tyres at least once a month.
An under-inflated tyre could cost the average motorist £300 a year in increased fuel consumption and reduced tyre life, as well as significantly increasing the risk of having a serious accident.
Braking distance with 2mm of tread is around 1.5 times more than with a new tyre.
There are on average ten deaths per day on UK roads that could be attributable to the sudden failure of a tyre.

Specialist Wheel Alignment Services
Has your car got uneven tyre wear? If so invest in our full four wheel alignment check on state of the art alignment equipment. Again this is as per manufacturer requirements guaranteeing accuracy.
To maintain proper control of your car, you must keep your wheels in proper alignment. Otherwise, steering will become difficult, your tyres will wear unevenly and your fuel consumption will increase.
We offer a free tracking check with every tyre fitted as recommended by tyre manufacturers using our laser tracking equipment.
Misalignment can cause huge increases in tyre wear and increase fuel consumption. Two degrees of misalignment on both front wheels could increase fuel consumption by around 10%. 11% of all premature tyre removals were due to uneven wear caused by wheel misalignment. Wheel alignment should be checked at least once a year and always after hard impact with kerbs, speed bumps or similar obstructions.
