What Do I Need To Bring?
You only need to bring two things along with you to get your tyres changed. The first, is the vehicle! The second and most important, please make sure you bring your locking wheel nut! If your vehicle has locking wheel nuts fitted then we will unable to remove the wheels from the car without this vital bit of kit. If you're not sure then give us a ring before driving in. You'll normally find them under the boot liner with the spare, if not try in the glove box.
How Do I Know If My Tyres Need Changing?
If when driving you notice that the vehicle doesn't handle very well or becomes less responsive in wet weather then this could be a huge sign that your tyres need replacing. It could also be that the vehicle takes longer to stop when you hit the brakes. The law requires that car tyres have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm but you will find that many of the manufacturers actually recommend getting them changed at 3mm.
Pretty much all tyres nowadays use a tread wear indicator between the grooves which become more visible once the tyre wears. When the indicator is in line with the tread, its past time to get them changed. You can also pick up a tread depth gauge to more accurately measure the wear across all parts of the tyre. If you are not comfortable carrying out any of these checks, then drive your car into the garage for a Free Tyre Check.
Did You Know: When your tyres reach 1.6mm (the legal limit) it will take an extra two car lengths to stop at 50mph than if your tread was at 3 mm!
Not only is it vital to keep an eye on your tread for safety reasons but if you get pulled over and your tyres are bald then that will cost you 3 penalty points and a £2,500 fine! With our Bude Tyres starting from just £39, its not worth the risk!
