TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners
  • Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users
  • Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre

Facts & figures

TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016.

  • The total number of casualties resulting from tyre-related incidents over last five reported years* is 5,677 of which 989 people were killed or seriously injured, annually averaging 1135 and 198 respectively
  • Where casualties arise from an accident caused by a vehicle defect, tyres are the single largest contributory factor over the last five reported years*, accounting for 36% of the total
  • The estimated cost of tyre-related incidents to the economy over the last five reported years* is £416 million, averaging £83.2 million annually
  • Annually, 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects**
  • TyreSafe's survey in partnership with Highways England revealed potentially up to 10 million, or more than one-in-four cars and vans on Britain's roads, was driven with an illegal and dangerous tyre in 2016***

What our customers think

Stranded in the Scottish Highlands during a two week road trip by my Landrover's suspension failure and gearbox issues , we thought our holiday would have to be cut short and get transported back to Lancashire by the AA. Having contacted the main Landrover franchise in Inverness to explain our plight, they informed us that it would be 3 weeks before the repair could be assessed, then some time before it could be repaired. We only had 5 days to go! Cue Mann Auto, and Barry Cruikshank. Our Landrover was collected for us on Sunday 2nd July, taken to Mann Auto (120 mile trip) work started Monday 3rd July and repairs complete on Tuesday 4th. A new suspension compressor, front cross valve and a gearbox flush, in addition to some other minor issues had all been done and our holiday was saved. This is incredible customer service, they are extremely busy and certainly not short of business yet they pulled out all the stops for us,an unknown customer. Many thanks Barry, from myself and the rest of my family.

Phil Cooper - July 2017

After spending lots of money at different garages and my Land rover still not fixed, we were recommended this garage . They found the fault and replaced the part within an hour, Although not local to us its worth the travel and we will be using them in future. They are Honest friendly and professional. And come highly recommended by ourselves
