Ford Focus in Enfield EN4 205/55/16 and alignment check
Customer had hit a pothole and damaged there tyre. Removed the tyre and checked that the wheel was not damaged, luckily for the customer they had not damaged there rim so only a new tyre was required. Fitted the 205/55/16 tyre that I had brought and refitted the wheel to the car, checked the alignment in case the tracking had been knocked out by the pothole. Alignment was ok so no adjustment was required. Check the tyre pressures in all the other wheels (including the spare) and adjusted as required.
Audi Q7 in Northaw EN6 295/35/21Audi Q7 needed 2 new 295/35/21Y tyres due to having nails in both of his tyres near the edge meaning that they could not be repaired.

Peugeot 206 in Hemel Hempstead HP2 175/65/14
New customer ordered online for a fitting to be performed today in Hemel Hempstead. The customer had ordered 2 Dunlop street response 175/65/14T tyres. Loaded the tyres up and set off for the agreed fitting time. Arrived and checked his tyres and confirmed that 2 tyres had to be replaced. Wheels off the car, tyres changed and then to the balancing, the only problem with his wheels is that they do not have the centre hole that a normal wheel balancer uses. This is not a problem for us as all our van carry an adaptor (called a spider) that can be used on centre less wheels. Balanced and put back on the car and then torqued up to the manufacturers specification. Checked the pressures in his other tyres and the spare, all ok. If you have wheels that do not have the centre hole and they need balancing call Hometyre on 0800 783 93 10 and we will be able to do it for you.
Heading off for the weekend

Porsche Boxster in St Albans AL3 235/35/19 and 265/35/19
Repeat customer called to say he had just brought a Porsche and needed new tyres on it. Took the tyre sizes down (235/35/19 Front and 265/35/19 Rear) and loaded the tyres up. Arrived at the customer's house to his new (to him) silver Porsche and changed the tyres. The tyres on the car would still have been ok but the tyre pressures on each tyre had been set to high so the middle of each tyre had worn prematurely. Set the new tyre pressures as per the manufactures specification and left a happy customer.
Fiat Ducato in Watford WD17 215/70/15
New customer called today with a Fiat Ducato van that needed 1 tyre. After discussing the customer requirements I recommended a GT Maxmiller 215/70/15 to suit his budget and driving pattern. The only problem was that the van was away from base at a customer's house, no problem for a mobile service, got the address where the van was and went to the address. |Changed the tyre while the customer carried on working. Loved the service, could not believe that he could carry on working while having his tyre changed, said he would be using us again.

Chevrolet Captiva North London N6 235/55/18
New customer called today wanting 2 Multistrada desert hawk h/t 235/55/18, no problem. Loaded the tyres and set off to N6. Got to the job at 1.00 as agreed and inspected the car. Fitted the tyres and then checked his remaining 2 tyres and his spare. The 2 tyres on the car where ok but the spare had a puncture, he said that he had changed the tyre after a puncture and never got around to fixing the tyre.

Cleaned up the wheel and put the replacement tyre on. Put the wheel back on the car and then checked the pressures in the other wheels, all ok. Replaced his locking wheel nut in the boot and took payment off him.
Ford Transit in Hemel Hempstead HP2 215/75/16
New customer called today saying he needed 2 new tyres on his Ford Transit. The only problem he had was that he was working and could not leave site to get them done. No problem, that is the advantage of a mobile tyre fitting service, you can carry on working while your tyres are changed. Talked to him about what he wants and he decided to go for SUNITRAC 215/75/16 116 R tyres, loaded them up and headed off to his van. Arrived and inspected his tyres, the rear tyres where the tyres that needed replacing, removed the wheels and fitted the tyres and then torqued to the manufactures specification. Checked the 2 front tyres, had 5mm of tread so not problem but they needed a couple of pound of pressure adding. Also checked the spare and only had to pump these up as will. Took payment and off I went, customer happy and added our phone number in to his phone so he will not have to leave work again for tyres.
