Part Worn Tyres

Thinking of buying part worn tyres?Part _worn _tyre

If you are thinking of buying part worn tyres, here are some things you might like to consider first.

  1. Many part worn tyres are actually dangerous.  A survey by Birmingham City council of cars with part worn tyres found that every single one had faults and was not fit for use.
  2. Many insurance companies may not cover your vehicle in the event of an accident if you have part worn tyres fitted.
  3. Many part worn tyres are sold illegally as they do not conform to the relevant testing, marking and safety legislation.
  4. Part worn tyres often have as little as 4 mm of tread left, having used over 60% of the tread.  Thus there can be less than 40% of the life of the tyre left.

We get many customers come to us after they have had part worn tyres fail on them, sometimes within a few days of fitting.  Some have even blown out at speed.  Inspection of the tyres often shows splits, punctures and other damage - someone took them off their car in the first place for a reason!

For these reasons we do not sell part worn tyres.  We believe they are often dangerous and by fitting them you could be endangering your life, and the lives of your family and friends.

However if you are looking for very competitive pricing on tyres, then our budget tyres do offer a fantastic and safe alternative to part worn ones, contact us to discuss your requirements and get a quote.
