car tyres online - cramerjohn004 - 02-27-2019

Everybody loves a bargain, and motorists frequently hunt for cheap tyres online as it is easier than calling round all the local garages. Some may decide that part worn tyres would be an easy way to save money. Part worn car tyres may seem like a valid option if you are looking for cheap car tyres, but the truth is that you don't really know what you are getting. While they may simply be tyres that another careful motorist has changed for whatever reason while they still have plenty of wear left, part worn tyres don't come with any history.

Frequently, tyres bought as part worns will have come from an accident where the car was written off. This could easily mean the tyre has thinner patches where the driver slammed on theĀ car tyres online brakes to try to avoid the accident. Uneven wear makes blow outs more likely. Tyres are also brought in from other countries that have cast them off. Not ideal.

Part worn tyres are always a risk. Some of the obvious potential dangers are:

There could be damage you can't see - stress points resulting from previous impacts that could lead to blowouts.
By their very nature part worn tyres will be older, and like many things, tyres have a shelf life.
If it turns out that there is something wrong with your tyres which leads to an accident, your car insurance will be invalidated.
