Tyre charity TyreSafe announced that the chain of 290 centres will be offering a free tyre safety check throughout the month of October. This move will increase the visibility to consumers throughout the campaign.
Stuart Jackson, Chairman for TyreSafe, said: “It’s fantastic news to welcome Halfords Autocentres to the TyreSafe family and its membership couldn’t be better timed with tyre safety month almost upon us, which is shaping up to be our biggest and best yet.
“Motorists already had plenty of choice for a free tyre health check but with Halfords Autocentres also on board, car owners have every opportunity to make sure that their tyres are safe and legal.”
Halfords Autocentres will be joining full members including Bridgestone, Goodyear, Continental and KwikFit, to encourage drivers to check their tyre pressures, and ensure their tyres are not dangerously inflated.
Marketing Director for Halfords, Rory Carlin, added: ‘Vehicle safety has always been a driving ethos for our business and is achieved by providing access to expert technicians, trained to the highest industry standards, at an affordable price.
“That same commitment to safety applies to tyres, which is a growing part of our core business, so the decision to join TyreSafe was a natural extension for us. We are therefore delighted to be involved with tyre safe month and offering all car owners a free tyre health check at any Autocentre in the UK.”
