You may have heard of Run flat tyres in the past, wondering what they were. Well here is your chance to find out! Run flat tyres are specially designed to keep working for a short while even after they suffer a puncture. So if you get a puncture on a cold, dark night, in the middle of nowhere, there’s no need for an uncomfortable roadside tyre change – you should be able to safely drive home (as long as the puncture isn’t major) or to your nearest garage to get your tyre changed. Run flat tyres also reduce the dangers of a potentially dangerous tyre blow out due to their... Read More »
When you look at all the electric vehicles on the market today, they all look the same. Which is to say, not exactly beautiful. Most are squat, ugly hatchbacks with some odd design feature or accent. None have the smooth look of the Model S or the capacity for a surprise like the Model X. The forthcoming Model 3 has been criticised as being the ugliest of Tesla’s three vehicles.

Well, some people do like control over their gears, and if... Read More »
If you’re considering moving house in the near future or are planning a bit of a spring clean, then you may want to think carefully about the equipment you’re going to need to secure heavy and large loads. Some people would rather pay a professional mover to carry out the work, but others are willing to take the task on with their own two hands, which we’ll be discussing in more detail in this article.
As the wintery weather is fast upon us, it is even more important to get your vehicle ready and prepared for those icy roads. As well as all the small changes from using antifreeze in your window fluid, you must check the most important items such as the tyres. Tyres should be checked regularly all year round, however, during the winter it is good to have the optimum grip to avoid skidding on icy patches on the road. Tyres should have a tread of at least 3mm, any less than this and you increase the risk of accidents and your car is not safe to drive on the road. Not... Read More »
