We suggest fitting new tyres to the rear
A very high percentage of punctures occur in the rear tyres as a foreign object such as a nail or screw lying flat on the ground is gripped by the tread on a front tyre and ejected directly into the path of the rear tyres and a new tyre is more likely to deflect an object than that of an older tyre.
You the driver,have much less feedback from the rear wheels than the front so it can take a few precious moments longer to register the handling difference and the loss of rear end stabilty at speed is very difficult to correct so a pattern of over-steer is produced and a subsequent lack of control is experienced.
With these points in mind,the worst possible place to suffer a tyre failure is on the rear axle.
Runflat Tyres Cambridge
Do you live in the Cambridge area and own a BMW or Mini Cooper and need Runflat tyres our mobile units are fitted with the latest tyre fitting equipment so we are able to change your Runflat tyres for you at your home or place of work so give us a call on 0800 783 9310 and there is no call out charge.
Since 2014 all vehicles will be fitted with some form of tyre pressure management system and most will have TPMS valves fitted inside the wheels which will have a battery life of between three and seven years and in most cases the battery cannot be replaced. We can clone a new set of valves and programme them to work with the vehicles ECU so if you experience any problems give us a call.
Tyres deteriorate with age
Some of our customers are doing very low mileage and therefore the sidewalls are showing signs of wear before the tread of the tyre reaches the legal limit. A tyre has a lifespan and we are suggesting that tyres should be renewed if they are five years old as the strength of the tyre will reduce and could therefore lead to a potential blow out. The age of the tyre is usually displayed on the sidewall but if there is any doubt give us a call and we will advise accordingly.
Locking Wheel nut removal Cambridge
If your vehicle requires a locking wheel nut adaptor to remove the wheels make sure you know where the adaptor is located on your vehicle as it will be impossible to remove a wheel without it. If the adaptor is missing or damaged give us a call and we will come and release the locking wheel nuts and advise accordingly.
Caravan And Mobile Home tyres Cambridge
Most caravans and campervans are checked and prepared for the holiday season with a spring clean and possibly a service but it is quite usual for the wear of the tyres to be ignored. The tyres will do less mileage than a family car and will look ok as the tread depth will not dramatically reduce but as the tyres reach five or more years in age cracking could appear so we are suggesting that you change your tyres after five years. There is a Dot code on the sidewall of the tyre which will tell you which year your tyre was constructed and if in any doubt give us a call on 0800 783 9310 and we will come and give advice.
We are regularly meeting Caravan owners who are concerned on the impact to them and their vehicle if they have a blow out on their journey and our advice is very simple have Tyron Bands fitted to your wheels to prevent the tyre leaving the rim in the event of a puncture. Most insurance companies will look favourably if they are fitted so your yearly premium could be reduced. We will come and supply new tyres and fit Tyron Bands or if your existing tyres are ok we will just fit Tyron Bands.
A useful tip when checking tyre tread depth
A number of our customers recently have been concerned to see that the inner shoulder of their tyres had been wearing substantially more than the outer and was not noticed as we all tend to look at the outer edge of the tyre when checking for tread depth.
We suggest that you check both inner and outer shoulder of the tyre and if you feel it is the time for new tyres give us a call on 0333 444 5454 and we will visit you at your home or place of work. A good time to perform this check is when cleaning the vehicle by turning the steering lock so you can view the inside shoulders of your front tyres and then check the rears.
