Emergency services recommend Hometyre to a new customer who had a locking wheel nut problem.Last week we had a call from a new customer who was looking for assistance with removing a rear wheel with a punctured tyre as the locking wheel nut adaptor had been damaged. Our new customer was travelling home in his Vauxhall Corsa when a rear tyre picked up a screw and the tyre deflated very quickly. Our customer called the rescue services for assistance but on arrival they found that the locking wheel nut had been tightened with an air gun and the adaptor in the vehicle was damaged so the wheel could not be removed. The engineer managed to plug the tyre without removing the wheel as a temporary measure so our customer could get home. He advised our customer to contact Hometyre as he knew that all our mobile units carry specialist equipment for such problems and on arrival we managed to release all four locking wheel nuts much to the relief of our customer. We fitted the spare wheel so the vehicle could be used and we returned the following day to fit a new tyre to the vehicle.
