Holiday Season is under way
You can tell the kids have finished for the school holidays...loads and loads of caravans on the A5 around Shrewsbury all heading for the coast... Lets hope they have all checked their caravan tyres for pressures and any damage?
You can tell its the kids summer holidays... The roads are really quiet this morning.. not a lot of tyre rubber being put down today :-(
I had a busy day today mainly fitting Bridgestone tyres.. However, I also dont mind Maxxis, Pirelli, Firestone, Goodyear, Michelin what ever they are I will fit them, so that my customers are safe and legal!!
Michelin pilot sports 2 for ultimate edge grip!!!
With the recent Government announcement that T.P.M.S will become law for new vehicles within 2 years, I have seen a rise in enquiries from customers asking about the Tyron and Tyresure systems we can supply and fit. Initially I have only fitted one system so far , but the customer was delighted!!
Run Flat tyres
Run flats.. is the BMW led technology a permanent thing? Who knows? The public dont understand the technology they just see expensive tyres! Strange tho today I went to a Mini Cooper and it's owner I used to go to school with.. Strange world!
I changed the tyres today on van that I havent seen in years an LDV Freighter with twin wheel rear axles.. Despite their reputation that one is still going strong.
Caravan Owners please be aware of your tyres life span
On two occasions in recently Hometyre Shropshire has attended caravans with failed tyres. On both occasions the failure can be attributed to the age of the tyres. All tyres have a date code following the DOT stamp this should be 4 digits ( 3 digits are over 11 years old now !). The caravan club recommend changing tyres after 5 years to reduce the possibility of age related failures.
Busy day yesterday
Occasionally you have one of those days.... All I seemed to do yesterday was tyres on Audi's and Fiat's. However no matter what the vehicle we will supply and fit all your tyre needs!!
Keeping milk flowing across Shropshire
Dealing with their fleet of early '70s battery powered floats as well as the modern fleet, Hometyre have provided specialised services for the local dairy for many years. The split rim design of the 40 year old wheels is now such an uncommon sight that other tyre dealers simply do not have the experience or knowledge to replace or repair tyres. Hometyre are proud to work with Shropshire Dairies to assist in the continuation of this much needed delivery service to the people of the area.
Hometyre links up with local businesses
Hometyre links with Robinson's Valeters, PestForce and Rae Leeson mobile caravan services to offer multiple on site solutions for caravan and motorhome users across the county. For a copy of the promotional guide contact Hometyre on 01743 861183
