Track Tyres for an Aerial Atom in Crawley | Hometyre Mobile Tyre Fitting Service
Not only do we supply and fit tyre but, we can also fit customer sourced tyres (as long as they are brand new with the original labels attached). This customer had sourced track specific tyres not designed for road use and had asked for us to install them. Fitting customer's own tyres is indeed something that we can offer.
Upon arrival we performed a pre-inspection of the vehicle and checked for any signs of unusual wear. As per the customer's race setup, the outer edges of the tyres were wearing faster but this is down to the high-speed cornering often experienced at the track! Nothing unusual there.
After the inspection, the light-weight Atom was jacked up and carefully placed onto jack stands where the wheels were removed and placed in the van. During the de-installation of the tyre, we found slight rim damage but nothing that would affect the vehicles handling or the tyres inflation characterises. With the old tyres off and the new tyres installed, the wheels were then inflated and balanced on our mobile balancing machine. Instead of using normal nickel and zinc silver weights, the customer had opted to go for the black weights so that they blended in with the black wheels. This resulted in a smart looking set of wheels!
With the wheels back on the car, we hand tightened the nuts then torqued to the correct setting. After a final inspection of the wheels, we generated a report containing the current tread depths, dot codes and recommended pressures.
