​​Tyre Care
  • Ensuring that your tyres have the correct pressure will increase both the life of the tyre and your fuel economy.

Puncture repairs

  • Puncture repairs can only be carried out on the central area of the tyre and must meet BS AU159 standards.

 

  • Damage or punctures to the sidewalls cannot be repaired and only one repair is allowed on V rated (or above) tyres.

       TRACKING & ALIGNMENT
It is important that your wheel alignment / tracking is checked on a yearly basis, to ensure the correct handling, safety and stopping distance of your vehicle. 
Correct wheel alignment will significantly increase the life of the tyres, increase fuel efficiency and provide a smoother more comfortable ride.
Any unusual visual wear on the inside or outside shoulders of the tyres is an indication that the alignment is incorrect and needs adjusting to prevent further unnecessary wear to the tyres.

Another indication there may be a problem with the wheel alignment is ​when the car feels like it wants to pull to one side,  and is most noticeable on straight roads or on a motorway.  

The cost of replacing a full set of tyres can be very expensive, so invest in your tyres and ensure you get the maximum life and value from them by having your alignment checked every 12 months or 12,000 miles. ​
