Fitting Winter Tyres Could Invalidate Your Insurance

Thursday, 6. January 2011

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

As you know, I try to report some of the most dopey things that happen in the motor industry. This week insurance companies come under fire. As I have reported on several occasions there is a strong move towards having two sets of tyres, one set for the summer and another set for the harsher winters we seem to be experiencing. For some it seems to make sense and I must say in the last dumping of the white stuff I’m sure that if I had winter tyres fitted I would have been able to drive my care sooner than I did. But get this. If you fit non-standard tyres on your car you must advise your insurer as it is considered to be a modification and will attract a higher premium. How daft is that? You fit tyres with a winter tread to make your car safer and your insurer charges you more. Is it me? Oh and don’t forget to tell your insurer because if you modify your car and have an accident your insurer may not pay out! I give up! What do you think? By Graham Hill
