Tyres and wheel balancing

We supply and fit high quality tyres for your car ensuring high quality with great value. All new tyres are fitted in our workshop and include new valves, electronic wheel balancing as well as environmental disposal of your old tyres.

Your car tyres are a vital component when it comes to your car safety as well as how it runs in terms of efficiency. A low tread depth or low tyre pressure not only effects how your car performs it is also critical in terms of vehicle safety and road handling. It is also a legal requirement that your tyres are road worthy with large fines and points on your license if your tyres do not meet the legal requirements.

Here at Astbury Garage we offer FREE car tyre checks - so if you are uncertain about the condition of your tyres, please feel free to contact us and we will ensure that the tyres on your car are legal and safe.

Legal requirements
the minimum legal tread depth of your tyre is 1.6mm across the middle 75% of the tyre at any point. Your tyre will have wear indicators and once your tyre tread has worn past these indicators - your tyre is no longer legal. We recommend replacing your tyres once they have worn to 3mm to ensure the highest level of performance. The current maximum penalty for a faulty or worn tyre is a fine of £2500 and 3 penalty points per tyre.

Correct tyre pressure is also critical to ensure the performance of your vehicle. You will benefit from higher safety, road handling and better fuel efficiency if your tyre pressures are correct. Incorrect tyre pressure can dramatically increase wear on your tyre as well as decreased grip and road handling.

Remember - all our tyre fittings include wheel balancing to ensure optimum handling and driving comfort as well as ensuring the lifespan of your new tyre.
