How a Minibus Can Eliminate the Risk of Purchasing Unsafe Tyres

​The icing on the cake for us petrol heads, sleek tyres on your minibus are the making of a fantastic road trip, so why risk this phenomenon for the sake of saving your school a tiny bit of budget for an emergency call out in an inconvenient location? Recent investigations have revealed that 139 out of 152 part worn tyre outlets visited over a five-year period across the UK were selling illegal and unsafe tyres to unsuspecting motorists.

Of these studies, only 13 dealers were found to be selling roadworthy legal tyres, a shocking discovery. These investigations have also highlighted how part-worn retailers are currently either ignoring their responsibilities when selling their tyres, or that they do not have the required skills to serve motorists in the correct manner. The shocking reality of these statistics has shown that during test purchases, some companies have fitted tyres with water in them to wheels, while others have provided customers with the wrong size and tyre, and even supplies with nails and other objects embedded in them is a common feature.
