Thinking of buying part worn tyres? Read this first....
Tyresure (An independant tyre service) carried out a recent survey on part worn tyres, based on tyres bought from a mixture of part worn specialist shops and from online sellers. Of the tyres they bought only 2% were legal.
Would you risk fitting part worn brake pads to your vehicle? So why risk your safety by fitting dangerous part worn tyres.
The survey also compared the price of these part worn tyres per millimeter and found in most cases they worked out more expensive than new tyres. Don't forget that a part worn tyre with 4mm of tread, has only 2.4mm of legal tread left, so you could be paying £20 ~ £30 for that 2.4mm.
