If you have TPMS valves then you should let us also service the valve at a small additional cost as the rubber seals in the valve harden and crack.
It is recommend that new tyres are fitted to the rear of your vehicle for safety reasons, also if having new tyres we recommend having us check your Wheel alignment (tracking) using our laser alignment equipment.
2WD, 4WD, AWD, Off Road, On Road, SUV, A/T, UHP, we can supply and fit most makes of tyre for your vehicle
Give us a call, as we have wholesalers across the country to see what we can do for you..
4x4 tyres should be changed in pairs as there should never be more than 4mm difference in tread depth on the same axle otherwise you may damage your vehicles differential. For more info on 4x4 tyres clickhere.
Our equipment can handle tyre sizes up-to a 24" wheel diameter, so we ca easily handle large tyres forLand Rover,Range Rover, Toyota Landcruisers & RAV 4's, Mitsubishi Shogun, Ford Rangers, Suzuki Jiminy's, BMW X Series, Audi Q Series, Mercedes M Series, Jeeps, Porsche Cayennes, Dacia, Hyundi's, Kia Sedona & Sportage,etc.
Hometyres service vehicles can fit Runflats (Run-on-flat, RSC, ZP, or SSR tyres) including original manufacturer tyres for BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Mini, etc
Runflat tyres are not designed to be repaired if punctured, this is because, the punctured tyre runs on the thicker sidewalls causing internal structural damage which is not always visible.
Winter tyre to summer tyre swap over
If you already have winter tyres on your car, you can book us to swap them back to your summer tyres, we will also fit replacement rubber valves (If you don't have TPMS) and will re-balance the wheels as part of the service.
Wheel Alignment (Tracking)
At Hometyre Sussex, we carry the latest Supertracker laser wheel alignment equipment. We can check and adjust your wheels back to factory settings on site, at home or work.
A correctly aligned vehicle will handle better, have better tyre wear, and can save you fuel.
It is recommended to have you alignment checked every year or every 10'000 miles, or if you hit a pothole / kerb.
Caravan & Motorhome Tyres + TPMS systems and Tyrons.
Hometyre specialise in tyres for leisure vehicles, no need to tow them to a tyre depot, when we come to you at home, storage site or camp site.
(If at a camp site, please check with the site operator before we arrive).
When it comes to caravan and Motorhome tyres, we go by the recommendations of the caravan club, and insurance companies.
They recommend changing leisure vehicle tyres every 5 to 7 years, regardless of the amount of tread remaining.
Hometyre can also install a professional tyre pressure system in your vehicle giving a constant readout of tyre pressures and temperatures to a dash mounted monitor. This system works with pressures up to 90 psi.
When it comes to tyres, always check the dates and look for any signs of cracking / deterioration, not just on the sidewalls, but also within the tread.
We are also recommended by Tyron UK as one of their main suppliers and fitters.
The Caravan & Camping club offer a 10% discount on insurance to members whose vehicle is fitted with Tyron bands. Over a number of years this could pay for the cost of the Tyron bands.
High Performance tyres
Hometyre can supply and fit tyres to your Aston Martin, Ferrari, Maserati, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lotus, McLaren, Lamborghini, Porsche, TVR, Ariel atom, Mustang, Cadillac, Corvette, Camaro, or other high performance vehicles (Including kit cars).
Give us a call for a recommendation on the tyre you should be using.
Classic & vintage tyres
Do you need special tyres for a vintage or classic car, or if you need tyres to go on wire wheels with inner tubes.
Some of the cars I have worked on include an E Type Jaguar, a Lanchester, a 1950's MG, an Austin 10, an MG BGT, a Morgan Plus 4, a Morris 1000, a frog-eye sprite, a Ford Capri, a Daimler Jaguar, racing saloon cars with track tyres, NASS car tyres with Slicks and Drift car tyres
Additionally I have supplied and fitted tyres for kit cars, beach buggies, limousines, hearses, white wall tyres, tyres with white lettering, winter tyres, mini tractor tyres, ride on mower tyres, trailer tents, boat trailers, etc.
Hometyre carry a specialist tool that can remove almost any locking wheel nut, including McGard nuts, hardened nuts with revolving collars, chromed nuts, as well as the domed Jaguar and Landrover nuts as well as the new Volvo & Ford spinning nuts.
I have had customers who have been quoted up to £400 to have locking wheel nuts removed. We at Hometyre will remove the nuts for a set fee without damaging the wheels.
Over the last 9 years I have had a 100% successful removal rate of over 500+ locknuts. The photo shows some of the different lock nuts I have removed recently. For more info on removals clickhere.
At Hometyre, we believe in repairing a tyre to British standards if it is at all possible.
We can repair a hole up-to 6mm in diameter as long as it is within the central 3/4 of the tread area. We will also check inside the tyre to make sure that it has not been 'driven flat' resulting in damage internally to the side walls. We cannot repair damage to the side walls or shoulders of the tyre, also we cannot repair run flat tyres..
Slow punctures can generally be repaired..... we strip off the tyre and depending on what we find, may clean up the rim, add a sealer, new valve and refit the tyre.
Occasionally a leak can be caused by a crack in the alloy wheel, we have a speciallist aluminium welder who can repair these cracks, saving £'s compared to buying a new wheel.
Tyre pressure monitoring sensors (TPMS Valves)
TPMS valves are now part of the MOT check, all new cars registered after January 2012 will have some form of pressure sensors and after Dec 2014 they must work to pass the MOT. These valves have a 5 to 7 year life span, at which point the batteries die and the sensor stops working, or they become brittle and the valve stem snaps off.
We at Hometyre specialise in the replacement or repair of any broken /non working valves at prices that beat most main dealers.
Sensor valves should be serviced every time a tyre is changed. The service includes replacing the stem and nut, as the rubber seals in these parts harden and crack causing a pressure loss. There is a small additional cost for any replacement parts.
We can even clone a new set from your originals so that they connect with yours cars computer, should you want a second set of rims. For more info click here.
Horse trailer tyres
We are often called out to stables, to replace tyres on horse trailers, and smaller horse boxes. The tyres on these are often overlooked by horse owners, and I regularly see trailer tyres that are up-to 20 years old and are full of cracks.
