Hardly any component of the vehicle is underestimated as much as the tyre.
For most people, it's just a black, round piece of rubber. But the tyres are the only link between car and road. In an area of just the size of a postcard, they transmit all the forces that occur on the vehicle.
So do not neglect them, because tyres need care to show their performance potential.
Tyre purchase is a matter of trust
Motorists are struggling with an increasing number of special designs, specifications and changing requirements for suitable tyres by the Highway Code.
For any questions you might have about your tyres, please get in touch with us.
We are happy to help!
Air is everywhere ... even in your tyre
The correctly set tyre air pressure plays an important role to ensure optimum driving and wear behaviour. Too little but also too much air negatively affects this behaviour.
A rule of thumb says: never too little tyre air pressure, preferably 0.1-0.2 bar more, because that does not "hurt" the tyre. The rolling resistance is thereby reduced, and the fuel consumption decreases. The tyre air pressure should not be higher than recommended for a full load (see the manual of the vehicle).
Service is very important to us, therefore the air pressure control is free of charge for you. Just come by without an appointment, and we will check and adjust the tyre pressure correctly.
Do my tyres still have enough tread left?
In addition, the profile depth should be checked regularly. The legal minimum profile depth of 1.6 mm (thickness of the wear indicator) represents the absolute safety minimum, which must not be undercut. We, like many other experts, strongly advise customers to keep the minimum tread, not under 3 mm for summer tyres and 4mm for winter tyres.
Take a ruler and see how much 1.6 mm is. Not much, is it?
So stay safe and drive a decent tyre tread.

Here at Loughborough Refurbs, we have a good look at your tyres, make sure there is not a hidden damage or bulge, check the tread depth and at the same time set the correct tyre pressure.
Service around the tyre - by a specialist - fast, reliable, punctual.
