It's that time again. Your tyre tread has worn out and your heart sinks at the thought of having to waste - on average - two plus hours driving to and from the garage for a simple tyre swap.
But stop: instead, you could waste no time at all!
Instead of you going to a garage, our mobile tyre servicing vans can come direct to your car, fully equipped for a range of tasks from tyre fitting and puncture repair to wheel alignment and TPMS valve replacement.
Locking Wheel Nut removal in St Albans
Locking wheel nuts can be trouble for all sorts of reasons: perhaps you have lost the key or your car never came with one, or maybe it was damaged when someone who shouldn't be let anywhere near a car wound it on far too tight. Whatever the reason, removing locking wheel nuts is a simple task for us as we do them regularly.
Our vans come equipped with a range of specialised tools that can easily remove even the most stubborn wheel nut without damaging the wheel itself - though we did once have a wheel nut that was wound on so tight our methods had to get a bit more surgical. We still got it off though!
When we refit your wheels we only ever fit the locking wheel nuts with a torque wrench for the final turns to make sure that if you ever need to take it off again, you don't have to call us to do it for you.
Why You Need to Change Caravan Tyres Every Five Years
The Caravan and Camping Club recommend that you get the tyres changed on your caravan every five years, even if they look brand new on the outside. This same advice applies to trailers, horse boxes or anything else that sits unused for long periods of time.
You may wonder, if the tyres aren't being used, why do I have to replace them? Well, the fact they're not being used is exactly why they need to be replaced. Tyres do not like to be left standing and do not like to be left out in the sunlight, so if they're sitting still for too long they can start to crack. This is why - even if they look brand new on the surface - the interior could still be dangerously aged.
So, check the date stamp on your caravan's tyres and if they're older than five years, book an appointment online or by calling us on 0800 783 93 10 or 0333 444 5454. Our mobile tyre fitting works just as perfectly for caravans, trailers and horse boxes as it does for any other vehicle.
Enjoy Your Caravan Without Worry With a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
All new cars have a form of TPMS built in, but even if they don't, you can usually feel if something's gone wrong with one of your tyres. With caravans, however, it's harder to tell - and you definitely don't want to find out by having it flip over while you're speeding down the motorway.
We can install a TPMS inside the tyres of your caravan (or anything else with tyres) that constantly reports their pressure back to you, so that the moment you detect a problem you can pull over to the side of the road and swap it for a spare before the problem escalates.
Once the system is installed, we can also provide ongoing servicing to repair any corrosion or any other problems it might have. Like all our other services, all you have to do is book online or give us a call on 0800 783 93 10 or 0333 444 5454 and we'll take care of everything without you having to lift a finger.

No tyres are perfect, not even now ones, unless they are correctly fitted to your wheels. It is often necessary to fit balancing weights so that the wheels run evenly, as otherwise you may experience vibration through the steering wheel. Hometyre will fit your new tyres and then balance the wheels with these special weights. and this can all be done at your preferred location. We can also balance wheels if your original weights have fallen off the wheels.

Fleet tyre checks
At Hometyre we can come to your place of business and service the tyres of your entire fleet.
Things to look for when checking your tyres
When you check your tyres there are various things you should be looking for. You will probably know to check the tread depth, but you should also look for signs of cracking on the sidewall of the tyre and inside the tread patterns and also for gouges and tears in the sidewall. You should then check the Date Code on the sidewall, and if your tyres are more than five years old you should strongly consider getting them changed. You can see here for more information on how to check your tyres.
