Call for Ban on Part Worn Tyres – UK

The UK’s National Tyre Dealers Association (NTDA) at it annual conference called for a complete ban on part worn tyres.

There is no clarity on how this ban would be imposed. It could have an impact upon truck tyre banks, on tyre hotels, and on the sale of used vehicles – as every used vehicle comes with a set of part worn tyres.

This is a developing story and we will bring more news and comment as we have it.
