Van tyres

Called out to fit new tyres on a Renault traffic tonight, customer realised his tyres were illegal, and called us out to help.

 

TPMS

Called out to fit two sets of TPMS valves today. Easiest way to keep a check on your tyre pressures.

 

Puncture repair

Have you got a nail or screw in your tyre? Call Hometyre, we can fix punctures to British Standards.

Holes in the central 3/4 of the tyre tread can be fixed, holes in the shoulder or side wall cannot be repaired. Slow punctures can generally be repaired, depending on the cause, we will strip the tyre, clen up the rim add sealer and a new valve before re fitting the tyre.

We also cannot repair Runflat tyres, so please do not ask.

 

Tyres on Ebay

Buying used tyres on Ebay is very risky. Why is someone selling used tyres, usually there is a reason for tyres beng removed, often a problem cannot be seen until after the tyre has been put on a wheel and inflated. Even that does not show all problems as there could be internal structure damage to the tyre, which could cause a blowout.

Cheap tyres

Many people are looking at cheap tyres, this is OK as long as you stay in the mid range other wise you will greatly effect your stopping distances. Cheaper tyres have less silicon in the rubber compound, meaning that they are harder, and don't grip the road so well - especially in the cold. Mid range tyres include: Enduro, GT Radial Champiro, Autogrip, Hankook, Event, etc.

 

Tyres for a Porsche

If you drive a Porsche, you should not fit normal tyres that are the right size. Porsches are one of the few cars that have specific tyres made for them, each one has a 'N' number (N0, N1, N2 etc) The tyres have been designed specifically to work with a Porsche suspension. Fit ordinary tyres and the vehicle will not handle properly. Call our help desk for further info and advice.

Mobile phones while driving

Just drove back from Brighton to Bognor and on the trip saw 4 people using a mobile phone while driving,(One a policeman) and 2 people texting while driving. How come the police don't do more checks and stop this.

 

Jaguar locking wheel nut removal

Called out to a customer with a Jaguar x-type, the locking wheel nut key had been damaged by a fast fit tyre depot and they couldn't remove the wheel locks. The customer had been to 3 garages who couldn't help (including a Jaguar main dealer), she then found Hometyre on the internet, and Hometyre Sussex removed the locking wheel nuts that evening. Happy customer.

 

Why settle for two wheel tracking when you can have all 4 corrected.

Hometyre, can carry out 4 wheel tracking on most vehicles, giving you improved handeling, fuel consumption and better tyre wear.

 

Used Tyres

At Hometyre we do not fit used tyres, any old tyres taken away by us are environmentally disposed of at regualted sites. Part worn tyres have been removed from a vehicle for a reason, and sometimes that reason is not seen until they are put back on another vehicle. Why risk your life?

 

BMW Tyres

Need Original Manufacturer tyres for your BMW (marked with a Star), then give us a call at Hometyre we have access to the same tyres as your BMW main dealer, at greatly reduced prices. This also includes BMW runflats.

 

Mercedes Tyres

Don't be fooled by Main dealers saying that they are the only ones who can get Original Manufacturer tyres for your Mercedes with the MO marking. We at Hometyre also have access to these same tyres and at a lower cost. Call us to find out what sort of deal we can make for you!

 

Why winter tyres work

Winter tyres have a more silica in than summer tyres which stops them becoming too rigid. This in turn maintains their flexibility and maximises the tread in contact with the road and also clears the tread of snow as the tyres flex. As well as winter tyres you can get all weather tyres. But, If you live in a rural area, a steep hill or you just need to be sure you can about for either personal or business purposes I’d always recommend fitting winter tyres.

 

Dizzy

Fitted tyres to Jools's car today, CEO of Dizzy the diabities charity.

 

Puncture

Called out to a puncture today, where the car had driven over a brake pad left in the road. It put two holes through the tyre. Luckily they were far enought to do a repair on each.

 

Tyresure TPMS units

Hometyre can now install Tyresure complete TPMS systems to your vehicle (Car, Trailer, Caravan or van.) Allowing you to constantly monitor your tyres for pressure and temperature. Keeping your tyres at the correct pressures saves you fuel, saves on tyre wear and improves safety by giving you the optimum tyre tread area touching the road.

 

Puncture repair

Called out to a puncture repair, unfortunately the customer had driven some distance with it flat and had damaged the side wall. Had to have a new tyre fitted.

 

Blowout

Called out to a Van with a blowout on the A27 yesterday. He had a new tyre that had a puncture, but continued to drive on it till it disintegrated.
