Get a grip with your tyres

Winter is coming. 

The onslaught of ice, snow, sleet and rain means the paths and the roads become more dangerous. If it’s icy outside, would you go out in shoes with no grip, or would you wear the boots you bought especially for winter? And it should be the same for your car.

There’s nothing more embarrassing than slipping on your behind in front of a crowd, and there nothing much more dangerous than a car accident in the winter.There are over 6’000 more road accidents in the UK in the winter, so drivers need to be careful.
A main reason in this sharp increase of accidents isn’t just the weather, but the tyres on your car. Whether you have skidded a few times already this year or had a couple of close calls, if you’re thinking of replacing your current tyres, you know where to come.

You’ve used your car all year round, so when it gets to winter your tyres will be worn and may be even damaged. There’s no harm in going having a free tyre check is there? And there is nowhere better in Manchester to get a free tyre check than at The Scrappers.
