Many people are buying part worn tyres to save money, but I have just had a customer last week who was frightened by what he bought. He called me out as one of his tyres had blown up like a balloon, and it had only been fitted for two days. He asked me to fit a new tyre, and at the same time check all the other tyres on his car, as he had bought all 4 from a part worn 'specialist'. When I checked the remalning 3 tyres this is what I found: Tyre 1 had a 20mm split within the tread (MOT failure) and a hole right through the tyre, with a flat patch on the inside (Non British standard repair). Tyre 2 had a screw still embedded in the shoulder (Non repairable area, and an MOT failure). Tyre 3 initially looked good, as there was 6mm of tread on the outside edge, but there was only 2mm of tread on the inside edge. This means the tyre will reach its legal limit in 0.4mm. None of the tyres had the Part worn marking on them, making them all illegal. This means the £80 he paid was really for trash, he has now bought 4 new tyres, and now feels safe. Why buy part worn tyres, they are the only part of the car keeping you on the road. Not only that, but many insurance companies will not payout in the event of an accident, if it is found that part worn tyres were fitted and were part of the contributing factors. We at Hometyre do not sell part worn tyres, we feel that they are dangerous, so please don't call us asking for them. A trading standards check also revealed that per millimeter, part worn tyres often cost more than a new tyre. Call us if you want safe new tyres, or take a look on our website, all tyre pries are available.
