Particle Pollution from Tyre Wear
Monday, October 31st, 2022

Particle pollution as a result of tyre wear is found to be 2,000 times worse than modern car exhaust emissions, according to a recent study undertaken by Emissions Analytics.

Though the underlying cause for these fires is always excessive heat that manages to ignite a tyre or some stray oil or grease at the wheel end. According to the 2020 Major Accident Report by the National Transport Accident Research Centre, 33% of truck fire losses since 2011 were caused

Wednesday, August 10th, 2022

There may not be a legal requirement to change tyres with the seasons in the UK, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.

Summer tyres provide all-round better performance in the warmer months, the shallower tread pattern aids precision on the roads, and the relatively hard rubber compound softens in milder temperatures providing high grip levels on both wet and dry roads. These tyres are designed to adapt to the higher temperatures without getting soft, this means
