Yes, Tyre Awareness week is an industry sponsored initiative to heighten Kiwi’s awareness of Tyre safety and Road Safety in general and to publicise steps motorists should be taking to ensure the safety of other people and themselves.
Its simple really, maintain your tyres at the correct pressure, check them regularly for defects and replace your tyres before or when they are down to the Warrant of Fitness compliant minimum. i.e. 1.5 mm. The new WOF check regime with many WOF tests now at up to 12 month intervals means that it is even more important that motorists check the condition of their tyres on a regular basis.
