Big Wheels Keep on Turning | Hometyre Mobile Tyre Replacement Service

Whilst Covid-19 simmer down, campervans and caravan sales have been through the roof as people have opted to choose to stay at home vacations as opposed to going abroad. Although, the ever-changing list of where we can go doesn’t help! We are starting to see more and more customers converting their vans into ‘overlanders’ where they are fitting beds, cooking equipment and even showers so they can take the home away from home.


This customer had recently purchased a Ford Transit which has smaller 195 tyres fitted from the factory. Knowing that he would take it to rural camp sites and wanted the best chance possible to get out of the mud so moved onto a more popular size that provided many options for off-road tyres. During the phone call, it was confirmed that the local Ford dealership had given the go-ahead for the size change and that it does not affect the warranty of the vehicle (if you’re looking to change sizes, confirm that it’s OK with your local dealership!).

The General AT3 tyres were ordered from the local warehouse and thus we headed out to the customer’s address at their preferred date and time.

Upon arrival, the customer gifted us a new set of wheels to accommodate the new size. After carefully installing the tyres, we used black wheel weights for them to blend in with the deep black wheels.

If you’re in need of a new set of tyres or have questions about changing your tyre size, why not give us a call on 0333 444 5454 or send an enquiry to!
