Small size tyres may become scarce

The European leader in online tyre sales, Delticom has announced there is a shortage of small size tyres available. This is an effect of the cash-for-scrap incentive which has increased sales in small size cars and cars with small cylinders therefore making up the highest percentage of new car registrations.

According to the site “Some experts fear that tyre dealers were not sufficiently prepared enough to deal with this boom in car registrations which could result in major stock shortages starting this winter” said the site manager.  Nevertheless, all necessary precautions   have been taken to anticipate problems particulary for certain models of tyres.
