Worn Dunlop winter tyres
Worn Dunlop winter tyres; Driving in light to medium winter road conditions to test the capabilities of Dunlop Winter Sport 3D tyres. There is still about 3mm of Sips and a further 2-3mm of tyre depth beyond that marker on the front tyres after over a year of driving. An excess of 10,000 miles has been covered in that time.
This road test is one of the best ones that i have seen. It shows the benefits of fitting winter tyres, that when changed in November, can last for three or four years.
Here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, UK, we operate a tyre-hotel. This was an experiment by our boss Eric Roberts about five years ago. We had heard about this operating in the Nordic countries. I thought that it could work in the UK, and so gave it a go.
It has been so successful that we are completely full at the moment, but we are creating some more space for the future. Customers can have their summer and winter tyres exchanged at the correct times and we will do all the work for them.
Our customers will then get the full use of their winter tyres, right down to the last millimetre. This video shows that even worn winter tyres are worth using.
