Friend purchased a part worn tyre.

About a year ago a friend needed a tyre, so he asked me for a quote & I duly obliged, he then went to check the price online & at some local garages, eventually he bought (much to my dismay) a part worn tyre.

When I asked him why he didn’t buy a new tyre, he said it was much cheaper to buy part worn & the garage owner assured him it was safe & legal.

So I offered him a wager that the tyre he had bought could not be compared to a new one in being both safe & legal.

Well he never accepted the wager, but I checked his tyre anyway & discovered a cut on the sidewall that had been patched up, after I explained to my friend the safety implications of his purchase, he vowed to avoid buying part worn tyres again…Safety first.
