Bad tyron band fitting

Called out to change the tyres on a caravan today, that already had Tyron bands installed. Who ever had fitted them previously had made some serious mistakes.... 1. Tyron bands were fitted upside down. 2. Of the 10 plastic 'feet' only 4 were installed. 3. Tyron stickers were missing off of the wheels. Please make sure you use a reputable fitter, who has been trained in the installation of tyron bands, like Hometyre.

 

Potholes - Hidden dangers

If you have hit a pothole, please take the time to check your tyres visually on the inside wall as well as the outside. I was called to a lady yesterday who's tyres had half an orange sized bumps on the inside walls, meaning these was considerable damage to the tyres wall linings. This is also an MOT failure.

 

A27 roadworks causing short delays.

Roadworks on the A27 at Arundel and again by the A280 junction (Just part Poling) are both causing 10 minute delays.

 

Energy Saving Tyres

20% of a cars fuel consumption is due to the tyre.To reduce fuel consumption,the forces opposing the vehicle's movement need to be decreased.Therefore a decrease in tyre rolling resistance leads to a reduction in fuel consumption. Energy saving tyres have low levels of rolling resistance,therefore providing a reduction in fuel consumption and subsequently reducing vehicle CO2 emissions and decreased pollution levels.

 

Tyre Information

TYRES are the only parts of your car that are in contact with the road. SAFETY in acceleration,braking,steering and cornering all depend on a relatively small area of road contact. It is therefore of PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE that your CAR TYRES are maintained in GOOD condition at all times and when the time comes to change them, the correct car tyre replacements are fitted.

 

Save on Fuel Costs

Whether Hometyre change one or two tyres we will check pressures and adjust If necessary in all remaining tyres including the spare If you have one. Just by keeping your tyres correctly Inflated will save you ££££££££ in the long run by cutting fuel costs.

Not every garage can fit tyron bands

Have just been to a customer who called 4 different garages before us, none of them could help him with Tyron bands, and three of them were main street tyre chains! One of them is even listed on Tyrons web site as able to fit tyron bands, maybe no-one told the depot manager! So for all your Caravan tyres, tyron bands and TPMs units call Hometyre - Mobile fitting at its best.

 

Caravan season starts

Have already had my first Caravan needing tyres, and today I fitted Tyron bands to another. Caravans are on the move on the roads, so If you need tyres give Hometyre a call, as we come to you - saving you the trouble of hitching your Caravan up and taking it to a garage.

 

Caravan tyre care

Many Caravan owners are now preparing their caravans for this season on the road. One of the most vital aspects of your caravan are the tyres, these need to be inspected regularly. Winter storage can sometimes have a detrimental effect on Motor caravan and trailer caravan tyres, so owners are advised to carry out simple checks to ensure their safety and the safety of their passengers: Carefully examine tyres to ensure that there are no cuts or bulges and that the sidewalls are sound and not affected by ozone cracking. By law, tyres must have a minimum of 1.6mm of tread although we recommend that tyres with less than 2.5mm of tread should be considered for replacement. Owners of trailer caravans with tyres that are over 7 years old should have them replaced irrespective of their condition. The Caravan club recommend changing the tyres after 5 to 7 years. Tyre pressures are vital and should be checked and adjusted in accordance with the manufacturer’s handbook. Finally, check your wheel nuts are tightened correctly, preferably using a torque wrench using the settings recommended in your manual. Happy Caravanning.

 

A27 Road Block!

Accident at the traffic lights on the A27 by Shoreham Airport - East bound 20 minutes delay. Police and ambulance in attendance.

 

Can a puncture be repaired?

In most cases the answer is yes. There are a number of points that need to be checked by your qualified technician, namely:

That the puncture is in the centre 3/4 of the tread area.

The tyre has not been driven on and suffered side wall damage.

The hole is not too large or split.

That it will not overlap a previous puncture repair.

The technician should also check the amount of tread left, as it is not economically viable to repair a tyre that only has a minimum amount of tread left.

If in doubt, call hometyre and we can check the tyre for you.... and advise as to the best possible action.
