Uneven wearWe had been called out to a very good customer with with a Land Rover Discovery. He had very uneven tyre wear, one side of his Michelin tyre had 4mm tread and the other side was smooth. He had hit a curb some months back and not had his Tracking checked. I was able to correct his Wheel Alignment at his work place in Milton Keynes. It's always worth when putting new tyres on to check your wheel alignment, we offer this service free of charge.
Pothole causes tyre puncture
We are having many customers that need new tyres due to damage caused by potholes in Milton Keynes. One customer had to have a new runflat tyre fitted on his BMW, his old Bridgestone tyre had split and damaged the alloy wheel from hitting a large pothole. Not only did we fit a new runflat tyre, we also re-corrected his wheel alignment. Still at least he didn't need to take time off work to get all this done.
Pothole causes tyre punctureWe are getting a lot of customers needing their Tyres to be changed due to damaged caused by Potholes. One unlucky customer needed 2 x New Pirelli tyres supplied and fitted at her place of work, she had hit a pothole and caused un-repairable damage to both nearside tyres. At least she didn't need to drive the car any further as our mobile fitting van was able to supply and fit both tyres at her convenience.

Van owners - tips for checking your tyres
Check out these free tips on checking your van tyres from Tyresafe. http://www.tyresafe.org/tyre-safety/van-tyre-safety/top-tips
Wheel Alignment Checking Saves the day
By offering a recent client a FREE wheel alignment check has probably ended up adding hundreds of miles to the life of his tyres. His tyres were significantly worn on the inner edge and he was experiencing severe pulling to one side. I checked the tracking with the gauges and it was way out. A quick adjustment for a small fee and the tracking was perfect. Another happy client.
Tyron Bands for Safety
A recent client had Tyron Bands fitted to his Caravan after having no blow outs in 40 years of Caravaning, he then had 3 blow outs in 3 trips. Unfortunately his Caravan was a write off. Don't take any chances have your Tyron Bands fitted today.
No need to move your caravan we will come to your storage facility and change your tyres for you there, as many of our happy Caravaners can testify to. If you need Caravan Tyres then Hometyre is the answer.
Locking wheel nut
Success again, another happy customer who recently bought a car not realising that there was no locking wheel nut. Never fear Hometyre is here, all four nuts removed from the vehicle and two new tyres fitted. MOT now no problem!
Checking your tyre's frequently is essential as one of our customers found out. I was called to a puncture for a rear tyre, when I checked all of the other tyre's 2 of them were down to the metal and were completely illegal.The client ordered 2 more tyre's and had his tracking done at the same. Although this cost him money, it probably saved him from being heavily fined if stopped by the police.
New Tyres Front or rear?
Check the handbook first as some give vehicle specific advice.
Generally it's good practice to fit the best/newest tyres on the rear – in wet conditions, this favours understeer rather than oversteer. So if you have the front tyres renewed it's best to have the rear ones moved to the front and the new tyres fitted to the rear. Tyres with deep tread are less likely to puncture and it's more difficult to control a car with a damaged rear tyre.
Don't leave it too late to get your Winter tyres. Book your appointment now and save time, money and most of all be safe.
Honesty brings rewards
Our free vehicle check has yet again paid dividends. Went to put the spare tyre on for a new client. Whilst there I checked all of the other tyres and actually showed her why she needed her other tyres replaced. Phoned through and sourced a quotation for her there and then and as her MOT was due in 2 weeks she has booked a further 4 tyres. She was also pleasantly surprised at how reasonable our prices were.

Corby Network working well
The word of mouth scenario is working well in Corby. New business and a lot of potential new business is coming Hometyre's way in this area. Comes back to get it right first time every time.
Ethical Policy Pays
A local Daventry client benefited from Hometyre's ethical policy. Upon inspecting the tyres on arrival at the job, the Hometyre technician discovered that out of the 4 tyres that were booked only two of them need changing. He also advised that the way that the 2 tyres were worn suggested that the wheel alignment was out. So the client benefited with a significant saving but also with the knowledge that their wheel alignment was now perfect hence giving future savings.
Keep the pressure up
Make sure you set your tyres to the recommended pressures otherwise the life of your tyres will be significantly shortened.
