Kwik Fit has today released its annual Tyre Wall of Shame calendar for 2012. Unlike other famous tyre calendars the images taken for Kwik Fit aren’t glamorous but they are just as mesmerising.
A new study reveals that those drivers who put off having their car serviced to save cash could be costing themselves more money in the long run. Research1 commissioned by Kwik Fit shows that a full service history on a car could increase its value by 26%. With the average used car selling for £5,5002, the findings indicate that a fully stamped service book could be worth up to £1,500 - over £10 billion to the used car market annually.
British parents drive their children 2.4 billion miles per year – an average of 491 miles each – in their bid to foster the next generation of sports stars.

New research reveals that in these times of austerity many Britons are turning to the second hand market. 60% of UK adults (28 million) have bought something second hand in the last year as they look to trim their household spending1. Of these, 1.9million bought part-worn tyres, previously used on another vehicle.
