Tyres are just fit and forget right?
Well, actually. no. They are an essential part of the car, obviously, but do more than just move you about, they are your only contact with the ground so it is important that they are correctly fitted and set up.
Balancing: If your tyres vibrate while going along, they may need balancing. We balance every tyre we fit, but we can check and balance those already fitted to your car.
Tracking: Does your car pull to one side or the other? If it does, you may need your tracking checking
Alignment: Do all your wheels point in the same direction - we can check to see if they do!
Nitrogen: Enhanced safety, better fuel economy, longer tyre life. Nitrogen filled tyres can retain their pressure 3 to 5 times longer than tyres filled with compressed air
If you have any concerns or questions, call us or call in to see us, we'll be happy to help.
Each and every tyre we fit is balanced using a machine like this (top). We use counterbalance weights made of zinc (above) We don't use lead anymore.
If your wheels vibrate even when your going along a smooth bit of road, perhaps they need balancing, call in for a check.
