What's included in the price? Open or Close
EVERYTHING! All of our tyre quotes are fully inclusive. We have listed below the extras that some large tyre companies charge for, on top of their original tyre quote:
Valve - Balance - Environmental Disposal - Fitting
Why are our tyres so cheap? Open or Close
We are able to sell our tyres at such a low cost due to our large independent buying power. We are not tied to any one supplier - so we are able to shop around for the best prices & pass the saving onto you, the customer!
Wheel balancing Open or Close
Any feel of vibration should be investigated, as it will cause premature tyre wear, decrease the service life of steering components, damage wheel bearings & cause poor handling. The first & lowest cost initial item to check is wheel balancing, this is carried out free of charge with new tyres. We offer wheel balancing from just £8 per wheel.
Will I have inferior quality tyres? Open or Close
No! All of our tyres are EU Approved, UK sourced and certified. A lot of our tyres are from the same manufacturer but with different names ie VW and Skoda. Same car, same quality, different badge, just cheaper.
Puncture repairs Open or Close
If you pick up a nail or screw in your tyre we offer a puncture repair service from as little as £13 (for all tyre sizes up to 175 aspect ratio) & £17 (from 185 upwards). The repair we carry out is of the permanent vulcanising type and is available provided that your puncture is relatively central in the tyre tread. We are unable to repair punctures either in the side wall of a tyre or, within an inch of the tyres “shoulder”. All puncture repairs include replacing the standard valve & balancing the wheel.
Please allow a little more time for a puncture repair as they take longer than a tyre replacement. You may be able to drive to us with a nail in the tyre, this is because radial tyres have a soft butyl liner that seals around small penetrations to prevent sudden air loss. This minimises the risk of high speed sudden loss of pressure, and it allows a get to safety option. If you remove a screw or nail, the tyre will deflate quickly and you will need a roadside tyre change - not the best place to do the job!
Tyre pressure Open or Close
Tyre pressure is best checked with the tyres cold (in the morning). Tyres should be inflated to the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations. Some tyres operate better at slightly different pressures. Please note: there are different tyre pressures, usually an upper and a lower level depending on how many people & how much luggage is carried. Some cars are fitted with integral tyre pressure sensors in the valve assemblies. These items are subject to a high degree of corrosion due to weather conditions and high varying operational temperatures, can become fragile & could break very easily. This is one of the major causes of slow punctures, especially on French vehicles, as are corroding aluminium wheels.
Locking wheel nuts Open or Close
These are designed to reduce wheel theft & have been the cause of many problems for motorists in the past. Primarily fitted with alloy wheels, their design is such that a “key” is required in order to remove one or more specially designed wheel nuts from each of your cars wheels. When having work carried out on your car, which requires wheel removal, we will request your locking wheel nut is provided.
Lost or misplaced your “key”? Don’t panic, we offer a locking wheel nut removal service which is priced from just £15 per wheel.
Please note - Locking wheel nut tools are subject to a high degree of corrosion/rust due to weather conditions or lack of use. They can become very fragile & break easily when being removed, so due to these factors, we will not be held responsible for broken locking wheel nut tools. If you are concerned, you are invited to watch our tyre fitter or remove the items yourself.
