Get a Grip on Car Tyre Safety This Winter With Continental Tyres

November 28, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Novemer 28, 2009 Driving in the winter can be a challenging experience at the best of times, but if your car tyres aren't in the best condition, it can become extremely dangerous too. Fortunately, Continental Tyres know this, and have recruited an expert to help with their new winter tyre safety campaign, someone who is no stranger to throwing a car around the tarmac in extreme conditions: British Touring Car Championship racer Fiona Leggate.

In a new series of online videos focusing on four important topics of winter driving and tyre safety, Continental and Fiona provide simple and straightforward advice on the following subjects:

* Tread Depth The tread depth of your car tyres can affect driving in adverse weather conditions. In this video, easy ways to check tread depth are demonstrated, even using something as simple as a 20p piece

* Tyre Pressures - Having the right pressures in your car tyres and knowing how to check these is vital. With handy tips and sound advice, this video has everything drivers need to know about tyre pressures this winter

* Tyre Damage - Damaged car tyres can be extremely dangerous. By following the advice in this video, drivers can check their own tyres for damage easily and quickly

* Tyre Sealant Kits - Car tyre sealant kits are an easy and fast way to quickly get back on the road in the event of a puncture, as the final video in this series demonstrates

"I'm in the unusual position of not only being a racing car driver, but also a mother" says Fiona, "Being a mother means that - now more than ever - I'm equally concerned about the performance of tyres off-track, as I am on it. That's why I'm making these videos for Continental".
