Taking Care of your Tyres

Don’t get caught with unsafe tyres. Our highly trained technicians will ensure your tyres are checked thoroughly, both your tyre pressure and the condition of your tyres. If you need new tyres, we can supply and fit a large range of tyres to suit all budgets.

Tyres are what connect your car to the road. This is obvious yet many drivers forget the importance of keeping a healthy “contact patch” with the road. Each time you drive, your tyre tread will wear down, which reduces contact with the road and your braking grip. Under or over-inflated tyres cause premature wear and affect braking distance and fuel efficiency.

Caring of your Tyres

Frequently asked questions about tyres

Our friendly trained technicians are here to help. Ask us your questions about your tyres to put your mind at ease. We are just as mindful of the precious cargo you carry in your car as you are. Let’s keep your tyres in top condition. 

At least 1.6mm of tread, throughout a continuous band in the centre 3/4 of the tread and around the entire circumference”

A tyre with 3mm of tread has an average stopping distance of 35m from 30mph in the wet, whereas a new tyre on the same vehicle travelling at the same speed in the wet with the average 8mm of tread has a stopping distance of just 25.9m. Once your tyre is on the legal limit with 1.6mm tread, it has an average stopping distance of 43m from 30mph in the wet, that’s nearly twice that of a new tyre.

Wheel alignment is a crucial and yet often overlooked part of your vehicle’s steering & handling.

Are you noticing that you have to put more effort into holding the wheel? Or is your vehicle pulling to one side? Maybe you have noticed your tyres are wearing more on one edge than the other?  Our fully trained technicians can carry out a wheel alignment check.

We recommend checking your tyre pressure a couple of times every month. We’ll check your tyre pressure and condition. Book an appointment or just stop by, we will be happy to help.
