Having the right set of tyres fitted to your vehicle has a significant impact on how the car handles, influencing things like braking distances, behaviour in wet weather, ride comfort and fuel economy.
With literally thousands of types, makes, different quality and sizes of tyres available, it’s difficult to know what the best choice is for your particular vehicle. As experienced tyre fitters serving Somerset and Wiltshire we would recommend you always buy the best your budget will allow, mainly because premium tyres will go a far longer distance before they need replacing, have better grip to perform safely in wet, wintry conditions, and noise levels are lower.
Many drivers prefer to change their tyres for the winter, fitting softer, more supple tyres to give more grip on icy roads and storing their harder summer tyres until the season changes. There is, however, a compromise in the form of all-season tyres.
It’s always good to get professional advice that you can trust when it comes to choosing which tyres to fit. At G & H Tyre Services, mobile tyre fitters based in Devizes, we’re not only committed to being helpful and skilled at what we do, but also happy to give honest, free, impartial advice when it comes to tyre selection. We’re independent and have no allegiance to any particular tyre brand, so we tell you exactly what we think is right for your vehicle and situation.
We’re also able to exactly size your tyres to ensure that when we fit replacement tyres they will correlate perfectly with the wheel rim, and we also take into account the load index, which is crucial when replacing tyres, particularly on heavy goods vehicles.
It’s important to remember that in the event of a collision an insurer may refuse to pay out if the vehicle was not fitted with the correct tyres at the time of the accident.
The main thing to be aware of when it comes to tyres is that the tread depth must meet minimum standards – not only for safety’s sake but because your car will fail its MOT if the tread depth is not sufficient, and you could be fined up to £2,500 with three points on your license if you’re caught driving below the legal limit of 1.6mm across the central three quarters of the tyre.
Despite all these “fear factors” involved in tyre fitting, most people rarely spare a thought for their tyres from one MOT to the next – even though the lives of the driver and passenger could well depend on the condition and fit of a vehicle’s tyres.
