Change of tyre for a Vauxhall Adam in Edinburgh


Despite being stuck a home, people are still checking their tyres! This customer was no exception, before heading to the shop, he noticed a puncture on the near side tyre. He immediately called the office to book himself in.

With the tyre in the back off the van, we sprayed it with a combination of water and soap to find the puncture. Much like fixing a puncture on a bike, the soapy water will create bubbles where the air is leaking out. After a couple of minutes of searching, we found the nail hidden in a tread block. Sadly, the nail was sticking out at such an acute angle, it wouldn't be repairable as the plug would not create an adequate seal from the inside. The tyre was then deflated by taken the valve core out and the bead broken. The old tyre was then removed and the new Nexen Nfera SU1 225/35 R18 installed in it's place.

Nexen tyres are our most popular brand as they combine the fantastic performance capabilities of premium tyres whilst retaining a mid-range tyre price. You can search for your sized Nexen tyre here!

Whilst in the van, the wheel was balanced and checked for any damage, corrosion or oddities (just in case!). The wheel was then popped back onto the car and the nuts hand tightened. The Adam was then lowered to the floor and the nuts torqued to the correct setting.

During this time of crisis, we take our customer's health very seriously. After the job had been completed, the locking wheel nut and the car keys were sterilized and placed back onto the customer's doorstep. Throughout the process, we wear sterile gloves. These will be disposed after every appointment. In regards, to payment, the customer can stay inside as we can call them and take it over the phone.
