Can you get me?
I am often asked "Can you get me xyz tyres?". The answer is generally "yes", however very specialist tyres are often difficult to acquire and we do NOT do the absolute cheap end tyres as they are not worth the effort for us or the customer
I did a Nissan Pathfinder today. He had Continental Cross Contact tyres put on.. Good on Road, Good off road
Back to School
Its nearly that time again... Back to school,college or university..Have you checked your childs car tyres? If not , why? they are the only thing that is contact with the road on their vehicle. If you are unsure what to check give us a call , and we will come and do a free, no obligation inspection for you.
After a successful week end (albeit a bit damp at times) all are back from the N.F.o.L. job DONE!!
After yesterdays busy day.. its very quiet on the roads today. Im sure that will rectify itself after the bank holiday and the kids going back to school
Bank Holiday Weekend
Its the Friday of August bank holiday week end... Its dull and rainy so your tyres will warm up slower, take extra care when braking and remember steering may not be as responsive. Additionally any oil or diesel that has been dropped onto the road in the last few days will mix with the water and make the tarmac less grippy. Message .... Be careful and drive safe!
All set up.. Tyron and Tyresure products on display. Lets hope for good weather!
I was at Entyrety the other day, for a technical update.. Tyre technology mores on a pace these days..
France home of Michelin
I went to France last week for a few days..home of Michelin. however like the rest of Europe there are many makes of brands of tyres available over there.
Energy rateings for tyres
From next year tyre manufacturers will be required to show the energy ratings of their product. Similar to that we ahve all seen on Washing machines and fridges.
Tyres for Severn Business Network
Hometyre Shropshire commits to a second year at www.severnbusinessnetwork.co.uk in Shrewsbury following a highly succesful first year with the group. Networking is a means to promote business services amongst other likeminded business owners within the area and can generate thousands of pounds worth of recommended business.
Just because the weather is good, don't think you can ignore worn tyres for a little while longer! Hot tarmac and higher temperatures cause even greater tyre wear.
Another sunny day
Plenty of caravans still about.. I do hope they have checked their tyre before travelling
Cheltenham and back
