Is Shortfall the Best Tyre Insurance you can buy?

That is a bold statement that a lot of suppliers claim to be and one that we don't think any provider can ever state with absolute cast iron confidence.

No one can ever be the best for everyone all the time it is impossible! 

The reason is that what is best for you may not be for someone else and vice versa.

So is Shortfall Tyre insurance the best you can buy? 

We can not guarantee that our level of tyre insurance will be the "best" for everyone as it will have eligibility criteria and may not be able to cover you. However, if you do qualify then we can let you know that our policies will be hard to beat not only in terms of policy features but also in terms of price.

No gimmicks, no promises we can not keep or slick marketing just policies that work and a value for money price.

What are tyres Made of ?

Tyres have a complex chemical formula and each tyre manufacturer will say that it is the specific ingredients that they use that make all the difference to how your tyre performs and even how long it will last. In fact, precise ratios and manufacturing techniques are a closely guarded secret.

According to the British tyre Manufacture's Association, your tyre is made up of 8 main elements they are  

1. Elastomer 42%,

2. Carbon black & silica 28%,

3. Steel 12%,

4. Oils 6%,

5. Textile 5%,

6. Zinc oxide 1%,

7. Sulphur 1%,

8. Other ingredients 5%

With premium tyres, it is not just a question of what they are made of but also how they are made and to what specifications.

Kwick fit states that a premium tyre can cost from £180- 340 and in some cases more.

Please remember that a tyre insurance policy can not stop you from having a puncture, it can not guarantee that your tyre specialist will have a tyre in stock, it can however make sure that you are not left having to foot the bill at a moment's notice.
