blogentry-129174-0-53246400-1407840110_thumb.jpgOne of the most important safety features any vehicle can have is a good set of tyres. The significance of having good tyres on your vehicle can hardly be overemphasised.

 

Tyres belong to a department where you should not scrimp and save in relation to your vehicle's maintenance, because they are your only direct connection with the road and can make the difference between you staying on or off the road in tricky situations.

 

Well-maintained tyres will ensure that your vehicle is held securely on the road, allowing it to stop, start and manoeuvre safely. But more often than not, tyres are subject to damage from road hazards.

Road hazard damage

 

Road hazard damage is damage that occurs when a tyre fails as a result of a puncture, bruise, or impact incurred during the course of normal driving on a road. Nails, glass and potholes are the most common examples of road hazards.

 

Typical damages usually occur in the bead, sidewall or tread area of a tyre.

 

Some of the common symptoms of tyre damage to the bead area include mounting damage, bead separation and irregular wear whereas the sidewall and tread area are vulnerable to cuts and impacts.

 

With a new Road Hazard Warranty programme recently launched by Stamford Tyres, there is no need to worry about road hazard damage.

Stamford Tyres Road Hazard Warranty

 

The Stamford Tyres Road Hazard Warranty is applicable to all passenger car tyres purchased from and fitted at any Stamford Tyres outlets. Any set of four tyres under the warranty will qualify for free tyre repair (if deemed repairable) for a period of 12 months or 20,000km (whichever comes first).

 

The Road Hazard Warranty only costs five percent of the value of the tyre. So if the set of four tyres costs $1,200, customers will only have to pay $60 for the warranty coverage. More importantly, this fee is waived for all Stamford Tyres Intune Members, even for new signups at the point of purchase.

 

In the event that the tyre is damaged beyond repair, Stamford Tyres will replace the damaged tyre with a new one. The exact brand and model for the replacement tyre will depend on stock availability or a comparable one will be offered.

The Road Hazard Warranty's coverage is subject to terms and conditions and does not apply under the following:

 

- Once any of the tyres is transferred from another vehicle not registered under the warranty initially.

 

- The registered car under the warranty is sold.

 

- The warranted tyre has been repaired before.

 

- Tyre damage due to vandalism, racing, etc.

 

For the cost of the replacement tyre, customers will only have to pay for what they have used.

 

Measurements of the damaged tyre will be taken to determine the percentage of tyre tread used.

 

For example, if 15 percent of the tyre tread has been used, it will only cost the customer 15 percent of the original purchase price of the tyre. So if the price of the original tyre is $300, customers will only need to pay $45 for the replacement tyre.

What a big shop. Do they sell only tyres? The layout exudes Autobacs-ness to me. Would be good to sell car accessories too. My usual tyre shop is AL and Arrow and sometimes will check out Kim Hoe Tyres because theyve frequent promos and fresh tyres. If Stamford Tyres have any promo would be good to share. Doesn't hurt to have some competition...

Nope, it is a one stop centre for automotive needs. The locations are listed below - check them out!

Sounds like a good idea but too much variables such as:

 

1) Brand model of replacement is subjective. If I am on Michelin PS, I wouldn't want a replacement to something "cheaper" but yet I pay 5% of the Michelin's price for the coverage.

 

2) Percentage used. Most motorist would not be in the know on the measurement standard. Everything depends on the words of insurer who happens to be the vendor.

 

3) Original purchase price of replacement tyre. Possibly the highest possible price such as Recommended Retail Price (RRP).

Cost of tyre repair, which I assume is tyre patching, is generally very cheap. Like $10 per hole. So the warranty sounds expensive at $60. Can only break-even after 6 holes.

 

Interestingly, "this fee is waived for all Stamford Tyres Intune Members, even for new signups at the point of purchase."

Confirm + chop need to bring to the outlet to repair. If on-site, then I sure sign up. Too good to be true.

    Man uploads video to shame DHL delivery driver, gets online backlash instead

    Here's a perfect example of how public shaming can come and bite you in the ass. In a recent video uploaded on Singapore Incidents' YouTube channel, an angry man chases down and confronts a DHL Delivery driver because the DHL driver allegedly pointed the middle finger at him. Here's the video if you haven't already seen it. In the video, the incident begins along the KPE when the DHL van does an e-brake in front of our angry man, who is driving behind the DHL van. Angry man proceeds to sound his displeasure with a couple of honks. Ideally, this should be the end of the story for most people. But, no. The angry man then proceeds to chase the DHL van like some road vigilante. As soon as angry man's car is parallel to the DHL van, we hear some cries of displeasure before he grabs his mobile device* (which was recording the whole incident) to capture DHL driver's face on video. *This is a chargeable offence by the way The video cuts off and jumps to the DHL driver sitting on the floor and speaking in dialect (Hokkien I think?) trying to justify his actions. It's not clear how they ended up out of their vehicles. Angry man then demands an apology from the DHL driver for pointing the middle finger at him. We think the finger-pointing might have happened when both their vehicles were parallel to one another (in the camera's blind spot). The DHL driver humbles himself and apologises in both Hokkien and English. But, angry man can't let sleeping dogs lie and submitted this video to shame the DHL driver. What the people say He should have just let it go after the apology and maybe he thought netizens would rally behind him. But, boy oh boy, was he wrong. What do you think?

    Grab driver and his male passenger thinks of others before self in a nasty Thanksgiving car accident

    Have you ever watched a car accident video and told yourself in your head that “heng ah, it wasn’t me or someone I know”? I guess it’s human nature. The truth of the matter is – Even if you’re the safest driver in the world, all it takes is just one idiot driver to mess it up for you. So what happens if it happens to you or someone within your social circle? Read on to find out. Sometime in the evening yesterday, 28th November 2019, I received a message from one of my closest friends. It was an image of his heavily damaged Honda Freed. That’s how heavily damaged it was. The cause? This Lorry. It was a pretty bone-chilling sight, but the fact that he was messaging me meant that he was fine, so that was a relief. Eventually, he sent over the video footage of the accident. The video includes both the rear and dashcam footage. In the video, my friend, the Freed Driver, let’s call him Jeff, for privacy sake, is filtering into an expressway. A lorry follows suit, loses control and charges straight into the back of the Freed, shattering the glass on the rear windscreen. Also, that's a damn loud bang.  In the car There’s no in-car footage, but you can hear a brief exchange of conversations between three people in the car – Jeff and his two passengers. Jeff and the other guy were worried about whether anyone was injured, but the lady, presumably in shock, could only think of one thing. She was carrying Thanksgiving potluck food with her when the crash happened, and you can hear her go “Oh no! The gravy casserole’s everywhere!” Whut? Image taken from bigover.com This is what Casserole looks like. Anyhoo, I’m glad all parties are fine. RIP Casserole. You perished so that others could live. The best Thanksgiving dish yet.

    It doesn't matter whose lot it was - Don't forget about the most important thing!

    What's the most important thing? Stick to the end to find out! It's a good one. Like legit. A video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante has sparked a furious debate online that split netizens evenly on two sides of the coin. The video shows a Mercedes-Benz "stealing" a carpark lot from the cam car driver. Or is it really "stealing"? That is the question. The video, which was uploaded last week has since received over 260,000 views and almost 1000 comments! If you haven't seen the video, here’s the link courtesy of SG Road Vigilante's Facebook page Have you been in this situation before? In the video, cam car is patiently waiting for a carpark lot at IMM carpark for about 10 minutes. A White Mercedes-Benz CLS Class pulls up a couple of cars in front of the cam car. When the driver of the CLS (let's call him Mr CLS) spots a family walking towards the area he's waiting at; he decides to reverse to "claim more ground". Needless to say, once cam car driver notices what Mr CLS is doing, cam car inches forward to get the soon-to-be-vacant lot as he was waiting there for a long time already. Mr CLS gives him no chance to do so and reverses into the now-empty parking lot. This extra guy To make matters even worse, someone steps out of the CLS (supposedly the son of the driver) and walks over to cam car to give justification why the lot belongs to the occupants of the CLS instead of the cam car . He even makes a couple of rude gestures to the cam car once that's done. So whose lot is it? Some people say that the CLS had the right of way Calculative sia this guy and very specific too Some people jumped to the defence of the patient cam car driver The most important thing It doesn’t matter who the lot belonged to but we can all agree that on the most important thing....... This guy, is a complete a**hole Thanks Johnson! Couldn't have said so better myself.

    This Abang's gangster behaviour got me super pissed off (even when I'm typing this)

    In a video submitted to Roads.SG and uploaded on YouTube and Facebook, a recent case of road rage has got me fuming mad with a particular individual. However, I'll try to be as civil and professional as possible. The video was just uploaded about 3 hours ago and has already received more than 100 shares on Facebook. Here's the video, in case you haven't seen it. Video from Road.SG YouTube channel The driver and his mother were entering a HDB estate and driving towards the entrance of a carpark when a white Honda Vezel almost has a head-on collision with their car. Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel Reviewing the footage, you can see the Vezel was on the verge of crossing the white line to the opposing lane. The dashcam driver gives a honk, accident averted, and that should be the end of the story yes? No. An Abang decides that there was an injustice with the horn and goes all aggro on the dashcam driver. Abang wasn't even the driver of the Vezel! Abang:  The relationship between the Honda Vezel driver and Abang is not clear. Dashcam driver tries to defend himself and asks the Abang to look at his dashcam footage for proof, to which, the Abang says "don't need" multiple times. The spark to the argument The dashcam driver then says "Nevermind, LTA will see" and intends to drive off, but Abang  Dashcam driver loses his cool and disregarding the warnings of his mother, he steps out of the car to confront Abang. Abang asks a damn stupid question - "What's your problem?". Dude, the problem is you. But, I digress. Moving on, Abang starts screaming his lungs out at Dashcam Driver. He's so fierce that Dashcam Driver actually starts shivering (the subtitles in the video helps a lot). Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel Shifting over to camera phone footage All this time, we only caught a slight glimpse of Abang. But with video footage from a camera phone, you can now see Exhibit A of the Singaporean Douchebag - Angry Abang. Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel I don't know about you, but when he starts laughing at the camera and saying shit like: Doesn’t it tick you off?  The last straw My blood boils to its very core when he starts shouting at his mother - for presumably getting angry with his stupidity and trying to talk some sense into him. Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel Abang, you sir, are a turd aka shit. That's as vulgar as I can be in this article. What the people say Can get wife meh like that? Comments taken from Roads.SG Facebook page What do you think?
