Is it time to change your tyres? We, at Tyred & Exhausted, appreciate that it can be tricky to figure out which tyres you need for your car when there is so much choice on the market. That’s precisely why we’ve created our tyres Aylesbury service to provide guidance and support to our customers in Buckinghamshire.
We understand that, more often than not, the decision to invest in new tyres is dictated by cost. For many car drivers, choosing the best tyres for their vehicles is a matter of balancing costs. However, price only is not enough to help you make the most of your driving experience. As tyres are the single point of contact between your vehicle and the road, you need to understand precisely how each tyre can affect your drive, your safety, your performance, or your grip on the surface. We realise that budget is a major decisive element, but we promise our Tyred & Exhausted customers an in-depth analysis of their needs and their everyday driving environments to support your decision. We also develop a budget-friendly approach with you. Indeed, we consider the vehicle history, its performance, manufacturers’ recommendation, and your preferences to provide you with the most suitable tyres option. Our tyres Aylesbury service can also include fitting the tyres on your vehicle. Before you consider an online search to find the cheapest brand available, here’s a quick overview of what our tyres service in Aylesbury can do for you and how it can transform your driving experience for the better.
Including Vat to supply, fit and programme new TPMS valves
A tyre-pressure monitoring system is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside tyres on various types of vehicles.
A TPMS reports real-time tyre-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light.
Keeping tyres at the correct pressure prolongs tyre life and improves handling.
The signs you need to replace your old tyres
When is the right time to replace your tyres? We understand that buying new tyres is a substantial investment. Therefore, it isn’t the kind of thing car owners would commit to unless they were absolutely sure it was necessary. We often see customers waiting too long before changing their tyres, which can put you and other motorists at risk on the road. Indeed, if you’re driving on tyres that are worn out, you can struggle with a loose grip on the road or slow performance. Consequently, our first and most important step for our tyres Aylesbury service is to help you figure out when you need to get new tyres. It’s good to remember that your tyres have an average lifespan of 5 to 8 years, depending on manufacturers.
The tread depth is a legal requirement, which is something you’ve studied when you were learning to drive. You need to have at least 1.6mm throughout a continuous band in the centre ¾ of the tread and around the entire circumference. Typically, you can check tread depth with a 20p coin. If the outer ring of the coin isn’t visible when you push it into the tread, then the depth is sufficient.
You can also notice signs of wear and tear even if your tyres have not yet reached the minimum tread depth. Extensive vibrations and rattling through the car when you drive can indicate that the tyres offer little to no resistance to the road underneath. However, the vibrations could also come from a variety of other factors, such as weak suspensions, for instance. More often than not, you will need to ask a specialist to identify the issue. You can also hear a whining or squeaking sound when driving, which can happen when your tyres have small cracks on the surface or a small puncture. Over time, the damaged tyre is likely to turn into a flat tyre.
Finally, UV light exposure can damage the surface of the tyres and create cracks in the sidewall. These cracks can affect your grip on the road and lead to tread separation. They can also cause a blown-out tyre, which can be highly dangerous.
How do I know if I have the right tyres on my car?
Our team at Tyred & Exhausted sees more and more customers who worry their vehicles may not be fitted with the correct tyres. This is the case for second-hand cars that have been wrongly fitted with inappropriate tyres by a previous owner. Typically, you should notice an effect on the performance of the vehicle, such as the car’s grip on the road, its response to the steering wheel, or its overall performance. Driving with the wrong tyres can increase your fuel costs and decrease your maximum speed, for instance. Additionally, it’s essential to get your tyres checked if you have any doubt, as you could get fined during a police inspection. Most car insurers take tyres fitting seriously, which means that getting involved in a collision with the wrong tyres on can play against you, even if you were not at fault.
You can generally find all the information you need about your tyres from the car manual. Manufacturers are precise about the type of tyres each make requires. You can quickly identify the tyres on your car as it is written on the side of the tyre:
- The size of the tyre: diameter of the wheel
- The speed rating, which is the letter. One letter indicates a specific speed rating by 10km/h or 6mph difference between each letter. Picking the wrong speed rating could invalidate your insurance cover.
- The load index, which refers to how much weight the tyre can carry
- The side profile and width of the tyre
If you are unsure where to look or how to read the information, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team of experts. Our tyres Aylesbury service is designed to help you.
What’s your typical driving scene?
We understand that everybody is different, and therefore we make it our mission to get to understand your driving scene. Indeed, the tyres you need will also be defined by your day-to-day driving environment. That’s why our tyres Aylesbury service also includes important questions about how and where you drive. Your tyres need to be suited to the roads you travel the most.
We need to know whether you drive on motorways and fast and flat roads a lot, or whether you live and work in an area where narrow country lanes and uneven paths are frequent occurrences. Indeed, giving you the best possible grip on the road begins by learning which roads you drive.
We also focus our attention on whether you live off the beaten track or in the centre of a busy city. As road surfaces vary dramatically, your local environment affects the tyre choice, both in terms of width and speed.
Rainy and muddy surroundings also influence the decision.
