Another busy week in Milton Keynes
Hometyre Milton Keynes has had a busy week servicing customers in and around Milton Keynes and Bedford.
The week started off by me replacing 4 tyres and inner tubes on a 1972 Morgan 4 in Cranfield, before moving on down the road to Wobourn Sands to fit 2 Pirelli PZero Rosso to a Audi A5. The old tyres that i removed were so badly worn on the inner edges that the cords were showing through.
I immediately suspected that the wheel alignment was not within the manufactures specification, after checking and adjusting the alignment, i carried out a quick diagnostic check on the vehicles TPMS system.
Back in Milton Keynes I went around to see a customer with a VW Cadyy that had a slow puncture. After inspecting the tyre i found that the rubber valve was perished and was leaking air. A quick check on the other tyres, found that the tyre on the opposite had the same problem. I removed both tyres and replaced both valves. This is a common cause of slow punctures.
The next customer was in Knowlhill Milton Keynes, a Range Rover Sport with 275/45 21 Pirelli Scorpion Verde tyres. As this vehicle was having new tyres fitted it is recommended to replace the TPMS valve kits, which i did and carried out a diagnostic check on the system.
