New Tyres on a Kia Sportage in Chichester
Yesterday I was booked to fit two tyres and check the wheel alignment on a Kia Sportage in Chichester. The customer told me he had shied away from a mobile tyre service previously as he thought it would be far to expensive. But this time he had checked our price and compared it with other tyre suppliers and was pleasantly surprised to find our cost was lower than the others. Plus since we were coming to him he would be able to have his tyres changed at his works car park so he would also save time.
I arrived at his works and soon found the car using the number plate from our booking system. I was then able to call him and tell him I was outside ready to start. He came out and gave me the car keys along with the locking wheel nut removal socket.
My first job was to check the existing tyres on the car to make sure the new ones were the correct size. I then loosened off the lock nuts by hand, before jacking the car up and removing the rest of the wheel nuts. Each wheel was then taken into my van, where they were deflated and the tyres removed. Since this car is fitted with TPMS sensor valves, they are inspected but not replaced. (We can carry out a service to these valves at an additional cost if required). The new tyres were fitted and inflated to the correct pressures, they were then balanced before being fitted back on the car, with the nuts being tightened using a torque wrench. I also checked the pressures and the tread depths of the other two tyres, before completing the report and taking a payment.

After the job I was please to see the customer left the following review on Twitter.
@HometyreSussex thank you so much for fitting 2 New tyres for me yesterday. I won't go anywhere else now, really impressed. Even cheaper than blackcircles! Keep up the excellent work!
