If you not spending money on your reoccurring services, you’re spending money on your tires. For as long as cars are driving on the road, tires are rolling through the streets.
As long as you have a car, motorcycle, anything that moves on wheels, tires will be like a 5m-high speed bump in your life.
What money you have in your pocket when owning a cabbie it belongs to your petrol, motor, maintenance, and tires.
When you changing your tires, you never-changing one. Even the unfortunate circumstances of a tire burst or a slow puncture on one tire, it’s recommended to change both.
In South Africa, a 16″ 205/55R16 Falken Tire sets you back R800 ($53,77/$42,37). That one tire replacement has now turned into two, increasing the cost of changing a puncture to R1600 ($107,55/£84,74).
At the end of the day, you are now changing all four because what’s the point in having two Falkens in front and some other brand at the back. R800 has now turned into R3200 ($215,10/£169,49).
That’s a hell of a lot of moolah to save and not worry about when on route to work, a party, or a long drive to another state.
The Utips is still in the prototype phase with no discussion on the price and considering it will be produced for commercial use, it should be cost-efficient.
