FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT IS WHEEL ALIGNMENT / TRACKING? 

Incorrect alignment can result in Irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of your vehicle. Wheel alignment is the procedure of ensuring your vehicle’s wheels are set to the ideal position so the tyres wear evenly. Hitting kerbs, driving into potholes or wear to the steering components can cause incorrect wheel alignments, so it is vital you get your wheels aligned annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres and help your fuel go further.

WHAT CAUSES PUNCTURES? 

Hard impact, such as driving over a pothole or hitting a kerb, can cause a tyre to go flat. Also, glass, nails and stones can make a hole in your tyre, leading to a slow puncture.

HOW IMPORTANT IS TYRE PRESSURE?

The correct tyre pressure is very important. It helps tyres last longer, provides a smoother ride and makes your fuel go further, helping you save money and improve safety.

CAN I REPLACE ONLY ONE TYRE AT A TIME?  

Yes, the good news is you can replace just one tyre. However it can be beneficial replacing two tyres at a time and as a pair, either the front two tyres or the rear two tyres, for optimum handling and grip on each axle.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY TYRES NEED REPLACING?  

If you notice that your car is not performing as well in wet weather, that it doesn't handle or grip, or takes longer to stop when you brake then your tyres may need replacing. You can also do the 20p test. To do this test, place a 20p flat in one of the grooves of the tread. If you can see some of the outer edge of the 20p, then your tyres may be illegal and need changing.
