Tyres are easy to overlook but they are one of the most vital components on a car and it's important to check them regularly. Old or damaged tyres present a serious threat to your driving safety. Correct tyre setup is essential for the handling of your vehicle, fuel economy and the overall lifespan of your car. If you notice your tread is wearing unevenly this could be as simple as an under or over-inflated tyre or a sign of misaligned or worn suspension components.
It's a legal requirement to have a tread depth of 1.6mm in a continuous band around three quarters of each tyre, and if there are any exposed cords you are liable to a fixed penalty notice with a fine and 3 points per illegal tyre. If you are at all unsure on the condition of your tyres, please don't hesitate to stop by and one of our technicians will be happy to inspect your vehicle and give you no-strings-attached free advice.

These range from leading brands, such as Goodyear, Dunlop, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Continental and Michelin down to more budget friendly names like Hankook.

If your tyre has only suffered a puncture then you may be lucky and not need to replace it entirely depending on where the object has penetrated. We will never upsell you tyres if it's not necessary!
