Advice for Clients in and around Eastbourne: What Are Part Worn Tyres and Why Should I Buy Them?

Quite simply, part worn tyres are products that have been used before. As a result, these tyres are more worn than brand new examples. While as a result they may have lost some of their grip, many people prefer the part worn tyre because they are considerably cheaper than new ones.


Yet good tyres are a vital feature on every car and can in fact save the lives of drivers throughout Eastbourne. With this in mind, it is hugely important that you know where to look and what to look for when choosing part worn tyres…


What Do You Need to Know?

Because every part worn tyre has been used before, they are all subject to a varying degree of wear. Some of these tyres have been used to drive many thousands of miles before they are sold on.


Remember that tyres are usually removed from vehicles for a reason. So, if they’re not safe enough for another driver, why should they be safe enough for you? Current regulations state that all part worn tyres need to be clearly labelled.  As such, we would recommend that you don’t buy any tyre from dealers in Eastbourne or elsewhere who don’t comply with this rule.

In the case of Westham Tyres, we inspect every single tyre we have in stock to ensure that it is safe for use on vehicles throughout Eastbourne. We also label every tyre with the words ‘PART WORN TYRE’ in capital letters, in line with regulations.


Save Hundreds of Pounds

When compared to the cost of a brand new tyre set, our part worn tyres offer our Eastbourne clients the chance to save hundreds of pounds. Choosing a used tyre set is also a good way of getting the best quality examples from the likes of Dunlop Goodyear or Pirelli, for a great deal less than they would cost new. Buying part worn tyres can also help cut down on waste and save natural resources.


Beware of Unscrupulous Dealers

As in the case of second hand cars, if you are offered a deal for any tyre in or around Eastbourne that looks too good to be true, then it probably is. Driving on overly worn – and therefore dangerous - tyres can lead to fines of up to £10,000 and as many as 12 penalty points on your license. With Westham Tyres, you can be sure that we check every single tyre to ensure the safety of you, your passengers and other drivers.
