Part Worn Tyres

First Stop warns against part warn tyres

FIRST STOP Recommends that you should NOT FIT PART WORN TYRES to your vehicle as they are not cost effective plus there are also potential dangers when buying second hand (part-worn) tyres. Second-hand or part-worn tyres are tyres which have been used on another vehicle and such tyres can pose a serious road safety risk. 

Things to consider when thinking of buying Part Worn Tyres:

Second hand tyres – are they as cheap as you think?

Are you getting real value for money?

Have they undergone a ‘condition check’?

Free from defects both internally and externally?

How old is the tyre?

Most manufacturers recommend not fitting a tyre more than 5 years old
