A Shocking Story

Most people are not aware of how important shock absorbers are to your safety on the road. You may read up on a lot of technical info about their function but without getting too technical, their main function is to keep your tyres in contact with the road. By looking at the tyres on your vehicle, you may think that they have a lot of contact with the road surface because of their size but the reality is that the actual part of the tyre that contacts the road is less than the size of the palm of your hand - interesting fact... Think about it.

Shock absorbers also minimise your emergency braking distance by a substantial amount which could mean stopping in time to avoid a collision or accident.

At Tyre and Auto, we offer Free Electrinic Shock Testing to our clients as a service and to keep you and your family safe, to take advantage of this offer, simply call one of our stores or visit them.
