Your car grips the road with just a few millimetres of rubber, so it is important to know that your vehicle is fitted with safe tyres for greater peace of mind and safety on the road.
Our fully qualified technicians will inspect your tyres as part of a service check and asses the condition, tread depth and air pressure. We will also adjust your tyre pressures to the correct spec, report any tyres considered worn or dangerous, and provide you with a quote for replacement.
Regular tyre pressure checks will help prolong the life of your vehicle’s tyres. Under-inflation is one of the main causes of uneven premature wear on your vehicles tyres. It only takes five minutes and a check once or twice a month should be enough.
The minimum legal limit in the UK for the tyre tread depth is 1.6mm, however most tyre manufacturers recommend that you replace a tyre that has reached 3mm or below, due to the dramatic increase in stopping distances under this thickness of tread. Tyres that are illegal carry a fine of £2,500 and 3 penalty points per tyre, so having your vehicle serviced on a regular basis will help ensure your safety as well as avoid points and fines.
