Econ Tyres fitted from £25 - Branded Tyres fitted from £39
Tyres are made from a rubber based material with metal re-enforced side walls. The pattern on the tyre is designed to allow good friction in water dispersion in wet conditions. Tyres that have an advance pattern design and are made with exotic materials have a better performance and durability. Correct tyre pressure and tyre tread will directly affect the performance of the tyre.
The UK minimum requirements for tyre tread depth is 1.6mm. That is the minimum allowed depth across 3/4 of tyre at any along the circumference. Most tyres come with a 2mm indicator which can be seen in the thread gap itself.
What size tyre is on my car
The tyre size is written on the side wall of the tyre. It is normally written in three groups of numbers followed by a letter. They correspond to Tyre Width / Aspect Ratio / Diameter / Speed Rating. An example of this is: 195 / 65 / 15 V. Some vehicles have different size tyre at the front and rear. Manufacturer design the car to run on specific size and rated tyres, so for best performance ensure the right tyre is fitted to your car.
Uneven Tyre wear
Tyres not filled to the correct pressures will cause uneven wear to a tyre. Also the wheel alignment of the vehicle can cause uneven wear. Which is why it is always best to have your wheel alignment checked and adjusted when you fit new tyres on your vehicle.

Later cars use Run Flat tyres. A Run Flat Tyre has heavily re-enforced side walls that when a puncture occurs you cannot tell by looking and sometimes cannot even feel when driving. For these reasons manufactures have sensors on the wheel to detect if the air pressure is low on a tyre. Once the tyre has been replaced to filled to the correct pressure we can reset the indicator for you.
