When the World's Fastest Tyres Aren't Enough

The Need for Speed

Do you own a Bugatti Chiron, Hennesey Venom or a Koenigsegg Agera RS? And are you looking at maxing out the top speed? Well, unfortunately for you, you're stuck with good ol' Michelin Pilot Sport 4S's which (supposedly) can only take you up to the intoxicatingly slow speed of 278MPH. Supposedly being the key word there.

With the 'recent' run of the Agera RS being watched by the chaps over at Michelin, they came to the conclusion that the tyres were acting 'as normal' and looked as though they may have more to give. The same goes for the Agera, in terms of its top speed, Koenigsegg believes that it's got more to give.

Within the next few years (or hopefully months) one of the top named tyre brands will probably produce a tyre that can go above and beyond these speeds.


However, what happens when you're fed up of your daily driven Chiron and want something with a bit more… oomph? Well, you'll be looking at Bloodhound LSR. Granted, the turning circle is horrifically terrible, so no roundabouts for you, and the fuel economy would rival that of space shuttle, but when you need to get somewhere lickity split, you turn to the 1000MPH car. Rocket. Rocketcar(?)

But how does any of this relate to tyres I hear you cry… Well, strictly speaking, there are no tyres on Bloodhound. But, as the word 'tyre' derives from the word 'attire' (yes you Americans can have this spelling for once) it simply means the 'thing' that coats or surrounds the rim. So yes, Bloodhound won't be using 'tyres' but will instead be using solid aluminium wheels which look quite snazzy. (Ignore the picture, we guess that it's transportation tyres!)


Created from a singular block of aluminium, the wheels are forged using a 3,000 tonne press and good ol' fashioned black smith engineering. Well, we say old fashioned, the people creating these wheels are ex high level Royal Engineers with a truck load of experience. After the press, these wheels will be 910mm tall (nearly 3 feet!). The only cars with these types of wheels are the donk's from america (the opposite of the lowrider scene with mahoosive rims)


Currently, the best high speed tyres are the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S's, whilst being quite expensive (355/25 R21 for £553.03 inc VAT for one tyre!) they stump most of the competition on quality. However, the other big name players such as Pirelli and Continental are catching up quick quickly and we look forward to seeing what they can deliver.

Making Sense of Tyre Sensors

So a strange looking light has appeared on your dash, or your car is giving you a 'LOW PRESSURE' alert. What does it all mean and how does it work?

Well, a few years ago it was made mandatory for all passenger vehicles sold in the EU to have a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System fitted. This was designed to reduce harmful carbon emissions and of course road safety (yes, low pressures will have a dramatic effect on the amount of fuel you burn and wear your tyres out way faster too!!).

SO there's a couple of tyre monitor systems out there. One uses a special tyre sensor fitted to the valve in the wheel to report back to a computer in the car the exact and live tyre pressures - usually in psi (pounds per square inch). If the pressure falls below a preset figure you'll get a warning to check the pressures or look for a possible puncture or other issue.


The other tyre monitor system measures the amount of rotations each wheel takes over a set distance. If this continues to alter, you're alerted to a potential issue by means of a warning light or alarm etc. This system doesn't usually tell you which tyre is at fault though. When a tyre loses pressure, it gradually loses it rolling circumference and this is what is being measured and reported on.

So the first tyre monitoring system mentioned has quite a number of working parts - including a battery powered tyre sensor in each wheel. Connected to this is a special TPMS valve stem - which has serviceable components. A new car will give you around 7-8 years of TPMS battery life. The valve assembly including air seals will last around half of this time before potentially leaking air.

What does this mean for you?

Actually, you could just not concern yourself with it all and simply wait for it all to fail before thinking about fixing it - then pick up quite a tab all at once.
If you're unlucky enough to have to go to a main dealership you can expect to be paying around £185 per valve plus a hefty reprogramming fee too.
Or.... have the TPMS valve components regularly checked and serviced (it costs on average about £8 to change a whole valve stem (not the sensor part). At the same time, the sensor battery level can be checked and when its showing at end of life, can be replaced at less than half the above cost per unit!

While a TPMS valve looks like a solid object (unlike it's rubber encased alternative), it does have small seals inside (not the cute type!) which will compress and deteriorate with age. At present most motorists are completely unaware of the serviceable nature of these valves. The great thing is that they will generally last longer than a conventional rubber one - but they still need attention!

Hometyre techs carry all of the necessary gadgets and gizmos to replace and repair everything TPMS related! Instead of having to reprogram new tyre senors to your car, when the battery gets low we simply scan the unique transmission codes and import them into brand new blank sensors and off you go! All a bit confusing? Call us on 03334445454.


Hometyre Mobile Tyre Services in Bristol

Hometyre Bristol, now online and fitting tyres in your area!

Just released into the wild, our new Hometyre technician in Bristol, Sergio, is now ready to come to your place of work, home address or wherever you may be to change your tyres! Woohoo!


Sergio has over 15 years of experience in the industry and specialises, alongside tyre replacement, in the service and diagnostics of Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). Sergio is the number one point of contact for car enthusiasts, trades people and the motor industry alike for all things TPMS.


Tesco Bristol Tyre Safety Day

In partnership with Tesco Supermarkets, we recently carried out a full day of tyre safety and pressure checks at the local Tesco Extra store in Bristol. This is a great opportunity to meet motorists and give absolutely free advice on the state of their tyres and pressures.
There were some interesting vehicles seen and a surprising amount of issues found - some quite serious!

The Stats

From the 54 vehicles checked, 42 had incorrect tyre pressures and EVERY vehicle fitted with a spare was found to have less than 50% of the pressure required to adequate for use!
14 vehicles had tyres with wear or defects which required immediate attention including 6 punctures, 3 of which we were able to repair there and then!

3 vehicles had incorrect tyre sizes fitted on at least 1 wheel and 6 vehicles had tyres fitted which were older than the vehicle itself. The worst of these were a pair of tyres on a 2012 car dated 2006!!! The owner of this one stated that he'd had the tyres fitted just a few months previously and had no idea they were 13 years old!
BEWARE the part worn tyre sellers in the area!!

Local motorists were incredibly receptive to our mobile tyre service offering and numerous bookings were made for routine tyre replacement and wheel alignment correction over the following couple of weeks!

Sergio is an absolute professional and a very friendly, trustworthy person who really cannot wait to show off what we do for you! We've been supplying mobile tyre fitting across the UK since 2003 and warmly welcome Bristolian motorists to try us out!!


Air-less Tyres, the Future?

Are air-less tyres the future or is it just a load of hot air?

Air less tyres, as the name suggests, are tyres which contain no pneumatic pressure. Often found on lawn mowers and mining equipment, these tyres can withstand a large amount of abuse. As these are more commonly found on specialty industrial equipment, transferring this across to real world scenarios would be of great benefit to the general public. For example, imagine driving down a country lane just after the hedges have been cut, normally this would mean panic and frustration as you know that at the some point in the next hour you will inevitably have a flat tyre. But, with the airless tyre you needn't worry about this as the tyre can't lose pressure!

Drove down a B road, hit a pothole and burst your air filled tyre? Airless tyres.

Like ramming screwdrivers into your tyre? Airless tyres!

Constantly going off road, driving over sharp rocks and puncturing your tyre? Trivago! Airless tyres!

In general, these tyres will greatly increase tyre and suspension component longevity as well as preventing unforeseen accidents caused by punctures, slashing or bulges.


We, at Hometyre, believe that in twenty-five years' time, most vehicles will come equipped with airless tyres. To kick things off, Michelin and GM (General Motors) are testing these new tyres on the Chevrolet Bolt with the hopes of having full scale production by 2024.

Once the tread has worn out on the outside of the tyre, the tread will be the only thing that needs to be replaced. This, in turn, would eliminate the over 200 million unnecessary tyre replacements each year! The only thing that is holding Michelin back now is trying to find a bonding agent that can not only be removed and replaced, but, can also withstand the heat, pressure and other outside factors that everyday tyres go through.


If airless tyres were to make it to full production, would you be interested in putting them on your vehicle?


Auto Motor Sport Tyre Tests

Nokian, the Volvo equivalent of the tyre world, known for their reliability, quality and performance in the wet. But unlike Volvo, Nokian are known for inventing the winter tyre!

In this year's Auto Motor Sport tyre test, the Nokian Wetproof 215/55 R17 94V came first beating the Bridgestone Turanza T005 and the Michelin Primacy 4 in a range of tests. With competitive prices, you'll have the quietest, best dry handling and shortest braking (in the wet) tyre available on the market as shown by Auto Motor Sport.


During the three tests, the tyres are pushed to the edge of their capabilities. A chicane is used to test the dry handling of the tyre and the driver will try and take the turns as quickly as possible for a number of runs. This is then averaged out and noted.
Testing the noise of the tyre becomes a bit more complex. Microphones are set up 1.2m above the ground and 7.5m from the centre. The vehicle must be travelling at 50 MPH when passing past the microphone with the engine turned off to ensure no outside variables affect the result.

Some notable quotes from Auto Motor Sport include "Particularly strong on dry asphalt are Nokian, Pirelli and Falken, who profile themselves mainly with agile, always safe and forgiving driving behaviour." In addition to "The best wet brakes in the test, Nokian and Pirelli stop about 1.2 meters earlier."

The Rise of the All Season Tyres!

The UK's climate can be varied and obtuse. One moment, glaring sun with 20-degree heat and the next day it could be -1 degrees with a chance of snow. If you're in Shropshire, this happened a couple of months back.

As our climate changes so rapidly, people are starting to opt for all season tyres on their vehicles. One of the most popular of which is the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season which has been said to have the same grip as the summer Michelin Pilot Sport 4 but can still retain great fuel efficiency.

Due to the Scorpion Verde being more of an SUV tyre, the alternative for a passenger car could be the Firestone Multiseason. Both of these tyres are true all season tyres with outstanding high speed stability whilst retaining the capability to drive in snow and retain good traction and braking performance.


We always recommend that you buy the best tyres for your specific driving style and application. However, in most instances this would mean purchasing both summer and winter tyres which would need to be swapped over in the spring and autumn. All season tyres are perfect for the casual driver as they retain all the positive attributes of a winter tyre and mixes them with the grip and flexibility of a summer tyre.

As the age of the vehicle increases, components typically wear out which can accelerate wear on tyres. For higher mileage users looking for a true all season tyre, the 205/55 R16 Maxxis AP2, for example, is a highly rated mid range tyre. You can use this link to view this tyre online!

If you're looking for an SUV or "crossover" tyre, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season is a great buy. They've has won numerous awards and is often at the top of its class.

Goodyear Launch Ultimate Tyre Challenger

Goodyear's all new Eagle F1™ SuperSport R & RS goes head to head with the highly acclaimed Michelin Pilot SuperSport

With the rise in popularity of ultra-high performance vehicles and the ever-increasing requirements for more grip and control to lay down huge power and torque, Goodyear have brought to market a product to contest Michelin's dominance in the SuperSport sector.

Designed to be able to perform at track level speeds and conditions while remaining road-legal, Goodyear promote the product's refined power shoulder technology constructed to enhance high speed cornering and improved sidewall stiffness for rigidity at fast speeds. Additionally the "Powerline cover Technology" contained within the tyre maintains a constant footprint to the road or track surface ensuring power is maintained to the drive.


Fitment sizes are not exclusive to the track borne Porsche 911 types though! A vast range of sizes are available from 205 to 305 width and 18" to 21" rim size.

Hometyre Mobile Tyre Replacement & Repair services supply and fit the range of Goodyear tyres including the all new Goodyear Eagle F1SuperSport tyres and our service vehicles and technicians are equipped to handle with care even the largest of sizes. Call for more info.


Release of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5

Goodyear have officially launched the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5, their next generation UHP (ultra high performance) road tyre, a follow up from the previous Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3.


The Asym 3 provided us with shorter braking distances on both wet and dry roads, increased grip for responsive handling and control and SoundComfort technology by Goodyear resulting in a much quieter ride.

The Asym 5 shows even further improvement on those all important braking distances thanks to the impulse control compound, reduced flex in the tread pattern and active braking. The tyre also features the improved SoundComfort technology, now reducing your vehicles interior noise level by up to 50%.

All these improved features have not compromised ride comfort and is aimed to suit everything from a Vauxhall Corsa to a Maserati Quattroporté.


It was developed with a "highly-refined compound that combines wet weather capabilities without sacrificing endurance or dry handling performance".

"Thanks to a contact patch designed to extend when braking, the tyre's contact with the road increases to a level more usually associated with a track tyre, resulting in wet stopping distances which are a significant 4 percent shorter compared to the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3," Goodyear said in a press statement.

Not all sizes will be released immediately, Goodyear have announced they will be introducing a range of sizes between February and May 2019 with the view to releasing more between June and December 2019.

Goodyear will offer the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 in sizes from 17" to 22" diameter, all of which we are able to fit here at Hometyre, at your home or place of work!

Give us a call today to see if we already have your size available in the new Goodyear release!

What is the difference between Wheel Alignment and Wheel Balancing?

What is Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment, also known as tracking, is a part of general upkeep of a vehicle, in simple terms it is an adjustment of the angles of the wheels back to the original manufacturer's specifications. Static sites carry out wheel alignment by putting the car onto a machine that measures the current alignment and provides calculations which inform the user which wheel(s) require correcting.


Mobile Wheel Alignment

However, here at Hometyre we are able to carry out Mobile Wheel Alignment. This is done by attaching lasers contained within gauges to the wheels which provide a reading. Once the reading has been obtained our clever technicians use the power of mathematics to calculate exactly what needs to be done to correct the alignment.


Mobile Wheel Alignment is not a convenience everyone can offer, this is not down to the process being impossible, it is because many other companies have not invested in the equipment and specialised training required to carry out the work.

We can carry out wheel alignment at your home address, your place of work or somewhere more convenient for you!

Do I need wheel alignment?

If your wheel alignment is not correct, some of the tell-tale signs are listed below

  1. The car wondering slightly to one side
  2. Steering wheel not running in line when driving straight
  3. Visibly uneven tread/edges wearing more rapidly

If you are experiencing one or more of the above, then you may have alignment or misalignment issues.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, it could be worth calling out Hometyre to carry out a free wheel alignment check on your vehicle. Simply contact us on 0333 444 5454, fill out a quick enquiry form on the website or if we're online, chat to one of our agents in the bottom right corner of your screen!

What is Wheel Balancing

Wheel balancing is the process of ensuring that rims and tyres are equally weighted around the circumference. To compensate for any imperfection a process of 'balancing' is carried out. This is when balance weights are applied to the rim which corrects any imbalance.


A sign of your wheels needing balancing is vibration between certain speeds, usually at higher speeds. If you are doing simple A-B driving around towns you may feel nothing, however once you get onto the motorway you may start to experience the vibrations.

Mobile Wheel Balancing

Our mobile tyre fitting vans are fitted with a computerised electronic wheel balancer, these are able to balance wheels on cars, 4x4, light commercial vehicles and even vintage cars.


We also offer centreless wheel balancing - for more information click here

Book in today!

If you are experiencing any of the problems outlined above, just give us a call today on 0333 444 5454 and book in with your local technician. We cover parts of the UK from Edinburgh down to Brighton and can often come out same day to keep you safe on the roads!


Can I put Car Tyres on my Caravan?

A question we get frequently asked… "Can I put car tyres on my Caravan?"

The answer is, maybe!

Caravans are typically supplied new with commercial tyres, although these may be the same size as car tyres they have stronger side walls as caravans have to be capable of carrying additional weight and for long periods of their life they are stationary.

This means they are bearing weight through a couple of points in the tyre side wall, over time this will weaken the wall. To put this into perspective, imagine you had to carry a heavy bag around on one part of your shoulder for an entire day… your shoulder would grow more and more tired from the pressure as the day went by. This is the same principle as your tyres, if they are supporting such a heavy weight on a certain spot they will begin to get tired.

The way tyres are designed is to be used, not just to stand still. Rubber is a natural product and will decay over time when it is subjected to heat and cold, dry and damp conditions.


Back to car tyres… as I said above the answer is "maybe". If you have a twin axle caravan you are more likely to be able to use car tyres because the weight is spread across two axles and 4 wheels as opposed to one axle and 2 wheels.

Therefore it is important to always check:

  1. What tyres are currently installed on your caravan
  2. What your manufacturer recommendation is for that particular caravan

If you are in doubt call a member of our team, we have been working with caravans for many years and will be able to answer any questions you have about the correct tyres for your caravan.

Silent or Noise Cancelling systems (NCS)

Manufacturers such as Pirelli and Continental tyre have and continue to develop tyres to be more environmentally noise friendly, giving off less external noise. These can typically be found in larger vehicles such as Range Rovers.

Since 2012, all tyres supplied to the European market have had to come with Euro Tyre Label Information and one of the elements that are required to be published is External Road Noise in dB.

What is NCS technology?

NCS is typically a layer of foam that fits inside the tyre against the Bytol liner of the tread face. This is never seen unless you take the tyre off the rim and it then appears as foam hoop. This lining acts a noise suppressant without compromising the performance of the tyre.

NCS or Silent tyres can generally be repaired if they become punctured (subject to BSAU 159).


Hometyre South Midlands went out to fit 2 of the highest rated NCS tyres, the Continental Sport Silent, to a customer's Audi A6 in Rednal, Birmingham earlier this week.

Another brand which is highly recognised for its NCS is Pirelli, PNCS (Pirelli Noise Cancelling System) technology has been designed with sound absorbing sponge to reduce the frequency filtering through the car, resulting in a higher level of comfort in comparison to traditional tyres.

Are you thinking of fitting NCS tyres to your vehicle? Call us today to check what we can get in your size!

Tyres for Hybrid and Electric Cars

The market for electric vehicles is only going to get bigger, tyre manufacturers are definitely catching on to this! Several big brand names have started to promote tyres with Electric Drive technology.

The immediate torque of electric vehicles can be pretty tough on tyres, especially when you're looking at a heavier and more powerful model such as a Tesla P100D.

Goodyear have done some testing and they say that "traditional tyres can wear out up to 30% faster on electric vehicles", it is perfectly fine to fit normal tyres to electric vehicles but they will not perform to their highest capability. From their research Goodyear have released the EfficientGrip Performance with Electric Drive Technology, they claim as well as resulting in improved wear the tyre also offers extended mileage, extended driving range and high load carrying construction.

Goodyear E Tyre_1

Another brand who are investing in eTechnology are Continental, they have designed the eContact tyre which offers minimal rolling resistance for higher mileage, better braking performance and low noise emissions. Michelin have released the Energy E-V which boasts similar capabilities with a reduction in rolling resistance and 40% less interior noise.

We don't doubt there will gradually be more competitors in the market for tyres designed to help Hybrid and Electric vehicles run even more efficiently.

Do you need tyres for your Hybrid or Electric vehicle?

What is the legal tread depth limit on tyres?

At this time of year, the roads can be icy! This results in longer braking distances and reduced grip.

One thing that definitely won't help you in these conditions is bald tyres! See below!


For passenger cars and light commercial vehicles with a gross weight of up to 3500kg the legal minimum tread depth is NO LESS than 1.6mm.

If your tyres are below this the penalty is three points on your licence and a maximum fine of £2,500 PER TYRE.

Despite the legal number being 1.6mm, once the tyre reaches below 3mm of tread it will start to perform worse in wet weather, this is because it is unable to disperse water quick enough to avoid potential aquaplaning and loss of control.

If your tyres are between 1.6mm - 3mm we highly recommend replacing them as soon as possible or if it is not possible to replace them immediately try adjusting your driving style and going a little slower in wet conditions.

Call us today on 0333 444 5454 to make an appointment!


Tyres for your Beloved Classic Car

Our technicians are not just trained to replace your average tyre, here at Hometyre we've worked on our fair share of Vintage Cars too.

With the summer months ahead many Classic Car owners will be looking forward to taking their beauty out to a Classic Car Show, make sure you are checking your tyres in advance of this. The tyres may have ample tread and look fine but if they can potentially crack and perish due to changes in temperature throughout the summer and winter months and due to the vehicle being stood for a long period of time. Rubber is a natural product and needs to be worked and used occasionally to keep it in good condition.

Therefore it is important to check the entire tyre for signs of aging, deterioration etc. If you are in doubt call our team on 0333 444 5454.

See below some images of classic cars we've worked on in the past!



Is My Car on Run-Flat Tyres?

Earlier this week we had a phone call from a customer in Milton Keynes who was looking to get a new tyre fitted to their vehicle. They gave us the tyre size 225/45R17 and specified that they were looking for a run-flat tyre. Our team member responded by asking what model the BMW was, to which they responded it was an Audi A4.

The reason we assumed it was a BMW is because Run-flat technology was developed to support BMW (and its sister brands, Mini etc). However, over the years some other manufacturers have adopted the technology such as Mercedes on their new A Class, C Class and E Class models and Nissan have trialled it in the Skyline GTR models.

For Run-flat tyres to work the Rims (Steel or Alloy) have to have a retaining lip that the beads sits in (or retains in), this means when the tyre loses pressure due to a puncture the tyre then doesn't go "slack " and deform and go "flat". Run-flat tyres are designed to support the vehicles mass whilst driving for a short distance without the tyre being pressurised.

Your tyre may also say 'RFT' on the sidewall of the tyre if it is a run-flat, see below. 


After asking the customer why they assumed it was a run-flat tyre they told us it was because it did not have a spare tyre. A lot of modern vehicles will not come with a spare tyre, this is no indication that it is a run-flat tyre. If the tyre is flat to the floor, much like this customer's tyre was, it will just be a standard tyre.

After a brief conversation about what had happened to the tyre we found out they had hit a kerb the night before and badly damaged the sidewall, unfortunately this meant the tyre was not repairable due to sidewall damage.

So, a new Pirelli 225/45R17 P7 Cinturato was fitted later that day and the alignment checked free of charge. The customer was left with all the other tyres checked for tread depth and pressure, along with being a little more educated on their tyres.

Give us a call today to book an appointment on 0333 444 5454!


Time to Check Your Caravan Tyres!

It's officially 2019 and now the excitement of the festive period is out of the way many of you will be looking forward to planning your summer holiday!

To a large number of people across the UK that means dusting off the winter cobwebs and getting their caravan or Motorhome ready for the season! If you're somebody who loves nothing more than a long weekend away on wheels here at Hometyre we recommend you start thinking about checking your caravan tyres.


Due to such low mileage caravan tyres often don't need replacing due to low tread, a common reason for replacing them is due to them starting to crack. This could be due to age, if your tyres are older than 5 years you should definitely consider replacing them, click here to read about how to check the age of your tyres.

Another reason for this could be from being exposed to UV light, the sun can dry out the rubber and result in it perishing and splitting.

Another thing to look out for is 'Flat Spotting', this is when a caravan has been parked for a long time without any movement, the effect of the weight of the vehicle on one section of the tyre can potentially distort the inner framework of the tyre and result in a 'flat spot'.

If you're unsure about the condition of your caravan tyres, don't forget about the spare too! Call us today on 0333 444 5454 or book your commercial grade tyre replacement online at a location, time and date to suit you!



Happy 2019!

Here at Hometyre we would like to thank every single one of our customers for their business in 2018.

We've had a great year and hope you have too!

Here's to more of the same in 2019!
