Wheels and Tyres
We are well equipped to deal with problems with wheels and tyres, we have the ability to change tyres and balance wheels on site. We have a tyre changing machine which is slightly larger than most meaning we can change most tyre sizes without breaking into a sweat.
Its really important to ensure that your tyres are in a good condition. They are the one thing that keeps you glued to the road, you need to make sure that they are road worthy at all times, especially in the winter time when the roads spend more time wet than they do dry! You need to make sure you check the tread depth indicator and you need to make sure that the tyres don't have anything sticking out of them like nails and screws. If you're unsure then come and see us, we are more than happy to take a look for you and advise exactly what you need
Did you also know that if you have a puncture then you may not need a new tyre? Just like with most tyres you can repair some punctures on car tyres too, this could save you a fortune its always worth asking the garage "can my puncture be repaired?" We always repair where we can, we wont fit a new tyre unless we need to, its only going to cost you more than necessary and we don't believe in over charging!
What is wheel balancing? - I have heard that many times before. Well, when you drive over a pot hole in the road it might slightly buckle the wheel, when balancing uses tiny weights to correct this. We always balance wheels when we change tyres, this ensures your ride down the road is as safe and smooth as possible.
