During the colder months of the year, it is important that you switch to winter tyres from your summer tyres. The former have properties that are different from the latter that can make driving in icy and wet conditions safer.
Isuzu owners can take advantage of a new, comprehensive winter preparation programme at their local dealer. The ‘Isuzu Winter Level Check and Free Top Up’ is free-of-charge and has been launched in time for longer periods of colder weather over the coming months. Participating Isuzu dealers will check all major fluid levels (engine, transmission and axle lubricants, coolant and washer bottle) as well as tyre pressures, and top up any of these to the recommended level, free of charge.
As the UK prepares for the festive period, traditionally one of the busiest times of the year on the roads, TyreSafe is reminding drivers about the importance of checking their tyres. While many youngsters (and some young-at-heart adults) will be dreaming of a white Christmas, it’s not just these extreme driving conditions that car owners will need to treat with caution because damp roads can be just as hazardous, particularly if tyres are left unchecked.
Concerns for a consecutive harsh winter have prompted tyre experts ATS Euromaster to offer specialist cold weather tyres to retail customers for the first time.
