Burst Tyres-Flight delays as KQ plane bursts tyres shortly after landing from Entebbe | tyre news | Scoop.it
Hundreds of passengers were stranded on Monday after a plane from Entebbe, Uganda burst its tyres at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.The flight KQ 415 burst its tyres as it landed at the airport, causing a temporary disruption of traffic...
eric roberts's insight:

Hi many people do not know that most tyres that are fitted on planes are in fact Remould or Retread tyres, (depending on where you are from).

As long as only one tyre bursts ,then there is not much of a problem. The same as truck tyres. Tyres are very safe, but you will sometimes have a problem, from car tyres to huge earthmover truck tyres.

Tweet from @BedfordDrivers | tyre news | Scoop.it
New tyres are sold with a label attached to guide drivers on how safe, fuel efficient and loud they are #driving https://t.co/wtdLdLf9ax
eric roberts's insight:

A good tweet to remind drivers about tyre labels. These labels show the capability and fuel efficiency of any tyres that you may be thinking of buying. Some people in the trade, do not believe in their accuracy. In my opinion, this could have been so in the first instance but now i believe they ar more accurate?

www.tyresafe.org - Bike Tyre Safety Month - TyreSafe | tyre news | Scoop.it
TyreSafe was set up with the responsibility of raising the awareness of the importance of the dangers of defective and worn tyres.
eric roberts's insight:

As far as i know, Bike tyre safety month is something new? We all know that bikes, in general, are less safe than having 4 wheels. This makes the 2 wheels even more special. Tyre safety is a major consideration, hen it comes to vehicles on two wheels.

Good advice about your wheel alignment. Remember it is an extra expense but it is well worth it. Especially if you run a 4x4 like the Qashqai? Those big tyres can easily scrub off if your wheel alignment is out?
