A Few Tyre Facts

  • The forward speed of the portion of tyre in contact with the road is zero (0) mph, under normal circumstances, no matter what speed the vehicle is traveling!
  • The top of the tyre (that part furthest from the road) is typically doing slightly more than twice the speed of the vehicle. So, even if most of us don't drive a car that is capable of 200 mph, the top of most car tyres is generally capable of  more than 200 mph, where legislation permits!
  • UK drivers replace approximately 30 Million tyres annually*!
  • The most common tyre size is 195/65 R15 V*
