Are you tyres legal? For every illegal tyre you have on your vehicle you can received a minimum of 3 point on your driver’s licence.
The minimal tyre tread you can have legally on your vehicle is 1.6mm on private cars, light commercial and 1mm on all large commercial vehicles.
The most common types of tyres are all season, winter, summer, run flat and high performance.
In our workshops our team of highly experienced qualified technicians can carry out all sizes of wheel changes and punctures, we also have equipment that can remove broken locking wheel nut for your vehicle wheels.
- All season tyres are constructed using a combination of summer and winter tyre technology. They provide an adequate performance in all seasonal conditions; however, they are not optimised for summer or winter in the same way as dedicated seasonal tyres.
- Also known as standard tyres, summer tyres are designed to offer high levels of performance and are optimised to cope in temperatures above 7°c. They have a softer rubber compound to enhance stability and grip and they sport a tread pattern that provides resistance against aquaplaning.
- Winter tyres have been designed with a large number of grooves and sipes to offer greater traction and grip on snowy, icy and wet surfaces. They are optimised to remain flexible when temperatures drop to provide safety.
- Run flat tyres have been designed to protect your safety on the road if you suffer a puncture whilst driving. They have thicker, reinforced sidewalls than that of regular tyres and this enables them to be driven on for a short distance following a puncture.
- High performance tyres are tyres that have been optimised to provide quick response, enhanced grip and the ability to cope with high speed. These tyres are created by premium manufacturers which have derived extensive research and technology from their time in the motorsport segment.
