So if need your locking wheel nuts removed in Shropshire -don’t waste your time going round the traditional dealers. Call us. Our mobile tyre fitting workshops in the Shropshire area will do the job for you.
Did you know
Did you know, that it takes approximately twice as long to stop when your tread is 3mm or below? The UK legal limit for tread is 1.6mm, So on these greasy mornings , ask yourself can you stop in time if you need to? Check you tyres regularly, if you are in Shrewsbury or Telford better still let us check them for you.
BBC1 One show
The One Show on BBC one has confirmed that many motorists are ignoring the state of their tyres and therefore increasing the dangers of having an accident.They stated that six cars out of ten could have at least one faulty tyre and they also ran a test that showed the difference in stopping distances when using badly worn tyres in comparison to using good tyres. so if you are in Telford or Shewsbury and want Michelin, Continental, etc call us 0800 783 9310

A Bridgestone day
All I seem to be fitting is Bridgestone tyres today in and anound Shrewsbury.
I saw several accidents over the week end on Shropshire roads. I wonder if any were tyre related?. Its important you check your tyres regularly, as they are the only thing that keeps you in contact with the road!
Its that time of year again, when the nights draw in and caravaners winterise there caravans. But how are there tyres? They should be checked for splits and cracks and also their age.. the Caravan Club recommends changing tyres every five years.. Please check them and if in doubt. Call us on 0333 444 5454 or check out the web site www.hometyre.co.uk
Air temperatures dropped this Morning
People have started wearing fleeces, it must be getting chilly... Time to change to winter tyres. Pirelli, Michelin we can supply them all
Its getting chilly, time to think about winter tyres, did you know that at temperatures below +7 but about zero degrees winter tyres perform better because of rubber compound used in their construction!!
We now have a full supply of Maxxis tyre range including all sizes of 4x4 tyres.
Part Worn Tyres
I am frequently asked "Can you supply part worn tyres"?, My response is, " would you wear someone elses used underwear"?!!!.. Part worns have been disposed of for a reason, generally because there is damage to the tyre..Why else would some dispose of a perfectly servicable tyre?
Alloy wheels corrode over time and eventually they start "leaking" causing loss of tyre pressure. Often this occurs quickly and can lead to a lack of vehicle control. When we find a corroded alloy , we remove the corrosion (technically it's called oxidation) with a grinder and recoat with a sealer. This helps slow the corrosion process, however, oxidation is a natural process and can never be completely eliminated
Off to Sunny Manchester
I'm off to sunny Manchester to assist Paul in his terrtory lauch, Hopefully we can raise brand awareness and profile, with our offering of Goodyear, Maxxis, Bridgestone tyres etc
Mixed Day in Shropshire
I have got a real mixed day to day.. A Range Rover Sport will Pirrelli's and a caravan wanting 4 GT Radials.. Along with a real mixed and varied assortment of other jobs
Had a lady customer yesterday who had kerbed her tyre on her Renault Laguna. Now some times all that kerbing does is "pop" the bead seal off the rim. however yesterday, it damaged the sidewall of the tyre and I had to replace her Hankook
An autumn heatwave forecast
They are forecasting, an autumn heatwave according to the weather forecast last night... but it there is still time to order winter tyres, in case it snows the week after !!
Dunlop and Goodyear Winter tyre presentation
I went to a Goodyear / Dunlop winter presentation on their Winter tyre offering yesterday at Tamworth Snowdome. Hugely inpressive. A Ford Focus,Audi A3 and BMW 1 series all climbed the 1 in 4 snowy and ice hill easily. Just demonstrating if the temperature falls below 7 degrees celcius the benefits of winter tyres!
I had one of those days yesterday.. 6 jobs, and 3 of them were Ford Transits. All different ages and types, but the iconic commercial vehilce goes on and on
