Examples Of Bad Tyre Wear

tyrewearAs the tyres are the only part of your vehicle that grips the road, the depth of tread on them is very important for the safety of your vehicle.

Tyre wear (the depth of tread) signals the health of your tyre. Driving with low tread depth increases the potential for tyre failure and aquaplaning. Low tread depth in winter weather conditions can severely reduce grip and control.

Motorists driving with tyres under the legal limit also risk a fine.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
