Keeping Your Family Car Safe: The Best Alloy Wheels in Larne

Just five miles from the Magheramorne film studio that was responsible for shooting much of the stunning Westeros scenery that made Game of Thrones such a compelling series, Larne is a tranquil seaside town that is a wonderful place to bring the family for a leisurely and stress-free week or two this summer. But if you do come over, using the ferry so that you can explore the Antrim coast on your own timetable, do make sure that your car is up to the trip. Breakdowns on holiday are not usually on the itinerary! Let’s have a look at some ways you can keep your family car safe.


Wheels in Larne


Reduce the Weight

Your car is accustomed to the daily commute: kids to school, you to work – without too much of a load during these short runs. But when you’re on holiday, suddenly the time you spend driving dramatically increases – and the load on your wheels increases too, as everyone piles in all the clothes, toys, books and more than they need to survive being away from home for a short while. You can help your car by taking out any unnecessary clutter, especially if it is heavy. Do leave things like emergency kits, the spare tyre and a map book that you can use to navigate should you go astray and lose GPS signal, but large toolboxes, items waiting to be returned or donated, and those leftover toys that the kids keep promising to take inside and put away should all be removed. Quite apart from the weight issue, you will need as much free space as you can get for your comfort while driving for long hours.


Switch to Alloys

Making the change to alloy wheels is perhaps the fastest way you can drop some weight from your car’s burden. Alloy wheels are lighter than their steel counterparts by some magnitude, and so great is the difference to your vehicle that you will feel it in a number of ways:

  • Smoother ride for you and yours passengers.
  • More responsive steering will allow you to react faster than ever before.
  • Less fuel consumed saving you money or battery power, depending on whether your car is an EV or ICE model.
  • Reduced wear and tear on your car, saving you money and stress in the long run.

If this all sounds good to you, you can discover alloy wheels in Larne at Tyre Safety Centre and see the difference they make to your driving (and your wallet!)

With all those advantages – not to mention literal cost savings that you can make – it really is worth it to give alloy wheels a chance if you’re planning on investing in some new tyres before you head off to explore the wonders of Larne and its environs.
