Tyres and Exhausts

At Cumming Automotive we provide a full tyre and exhaust fitting service – all at very competitive prices.


Tyres

Tyres should be your only point of contact with the road surface. If you neglect their condition, you are endangering yourself and passengers and other road users.


The fines for having worn tyres on your car are much higher than most people think. A tyre needs to have at least 1.6mm of tread across the central 75% of the tread. If your tyres fail to meet this standard, you can be fined up to £2500 per tyre and receive 3 penalty points on your licence!!!


Did you know?

  • An under-inflated tyre could cost £300 a year in increased fuel consumption and reduced tyre life, as well as significantly increasing the risk of having a serious accident.
  • Your braking distance with 2mm of tread is around 1.5 times longer than with a new tyre.
  • There are on average ten deaths per day on UK roads that could be attributable to the sudden failure of a tyre.

For all these reasons we recommend that you allow us to check the condition of your tyres at least once a year.


Exhausts

The exhaust system is constantly in use whilst driving and at times, will reach temperatures of over 1000 degrees centigrade. This makes it one of the hardest working components on a vehicle.


The exhaust has to perform a multitude of tasks, silencing noise, preventing gas leakage into the passenger compartment and contributing to maximum engine power with minimum fuel consumption.


Exhausts corrode from the outside in and from the inside out. External corrosion is worsened by weather conditions particularly when salt is spread on the roads in winter. Internally, acids produced during the combustion process normally pass through the exhaust system as gas, but on short journeys exhaust system temperatures are lower allowing the gas to condense on the inside walls, forming a very acidic liquid which attacks the insides of the exhaust system.
