Like with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Millions of pounds are spent on research and development to find the best blend of rubber compounds for premium tyres. Premium tyres ensure optimum wet and dry grip, reduced wear and help reduce road noise levels. Paying more for a tyre means you’ll get a safer, more manageable car that performs well in a variety of conditions. Pay less and you could be putting yourself at a higher risk of accident, particularly if you regularly drive at higher speeds. Is it really worth it?

Why are defective exhaust systems dangerous?
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide gas, which is poisonous and odourless, a leaking exhaust could allow carbon monoxide to pass into your car through the heater, air conditioning unit or even an open window. The fist sign of a leaking exhaust could be a severe headache. A leaking exhaust also allows air to reach the oxygen sensors inside the exhaust that increases fuel consumption and can eventually harm the engine as it over-fuels.
Healthy exhaust systems provide;
• Optimum fuel efficiency
• Improved engine performance and
• Noise control and quieter running
Is your car or van is using lot of fuel, it could be because of a faulty exhaust system or perhaps you’ve noticed one of the following:
• Hissing or popping
• Blue smoke – this could indicate a fault in the engine
• White smoke – this could be due to an internal coolant leak or a leaking head gasket or crack in the engine
• Rust or corrosion on the pipe as well as cracks
Don’t wait, it could be serious, Eastmains will check your exhaust system and identify any possible problems and advise you of any components that need to be replaced.
