CAR & VAN TYRES
Car, Van, Motorbike and Caravan Tyre Supply, Replacement and Fitting by Simon Graeme, Hampsthwaite, Harrogate
Ensuring you have a good set of tyres is one of the most important parts of car safety – high quality tyres can help you handle the car in wetter conditions, improve your fuel economy and avoid longer braking distances. Our tyre fitting and repair services is undertaken by expert staff who are working with modern equipment to put our customer’s safety first.
Tyre safety is also a legal matter – driving with unsafe tyres can cost you £2,500 – so we always check that tyre tread depth is over 1.6mm. Our team ensures that you are complying with the law and staying safe, combined with excellent prices and a tradition of putting customers first.
Good tyres lead to excellent fuel economy and save you money in the long-run – we know that, and that’s why we encourage all our customers to check their tyre quality and pressure regularly.
Our commitment to making sure all of our customers can drive safely means that we stock a range of tyres from major brands such as General Tire, with whom we offer a lifetime guarantee. We can also obtain tyres from other major brands including Michelin, Pirelli, Continental, Goodyear, Bridgestone and Dunlop, which are available on request.
General Tire have more than 100 years of experience in the tyre industry and are part of Continental – a leading tyre manufacturer based in Germany.
Using the most advanced technologies ensures that the General Tire product is of the highest standard. We offer an optional “Accidental Damage Warranty” with every General Tire purchased. If any of your General Tire tyres are damaged beyond repair, then the defective tyre will be replaced and you will only be charged for the proportion of the tread that you have already used.
Our commitment to making sure our customers can drive safely doesn’t just stop with cars. We can supply a wide range of motorcycle tyres – although it seems obvious to say, having just two wheels means tyre safety is even more important.
We can obtain a huge range of high-end brands, such as including Michelin, Pirelli, Continental, Goodyear, Bridgestone and Dunlop and it is important you match the type of tyres you’re getting fitted to suit your style of riding. That’s why we always offer honest advice in person and over the phone.
Riding while your tyres don’t have the correct pressure can lead to both worse fuel economy and lowered safety while driving; call in and we can ensure that your tyres are in perfect health.
Commercial vehicles like vans cover a lot of miles and therefore need special attention paid to their tyres – that’s why we offer all of our normal tyre fitting and repair services for commercial tyres as well.
Vans and other commercial tyres differ from tyres for normal cars in a number of ways: the strength of their sidewalls and capacity to carry larger loads. There’s no need to skimp on the best tyres when we offer excellent prices for a range of major brands and have a team of skilled technicians.
We stock a wide range of tyres to cover most sizes of commercial vehicles – please contact us if you’re unsure of whether we’ll have the specific tyres in stock – in order to ensure that your vehicle can spend as much time on the road as possible.
Similar to tyres used for commercial vehicles, tyres marked with ‘C’ or ‘CP’ can be used for caravans, motorhome and trailers – they have been designed specially to carry the load of these larger vehicles.
Our experienced staff have all helped fit these larger tyres before and have a wealth of knowledge that we give over in advice. There is a real risk of caravan tyres being worn out after only a few journeys if you are covering large distances and that’s why we recommend calling in to the garage before any major journey for a quick check-up.
Fitting agricultural tyres can be a hugely daunting task. Agricultural vehicles and their tyres are always made to work hard, and this can make their tyres wear quickly. That’s why we supply a large range of tyres for agricultural vehicles in the Harrogate area.
Vehicles like tractors and harvesters all need to be able to deal with difficult surfaces – including fields and rocky roads – and their tyres need to be able to cope with enormous loads at the same time. A damaged tyre can leave essential vehicles out of work, which is something no-one wants, especially if it is a busy time of year.
It’s for this reason – helping our customers avoid discomfort or any lost time in their work – that we offer this service and help to make sure every customer that enters leaves with their perfect tyres. Vehicles used around the farm are important to you, and this makes them important to us.
We know it can be impractical sometimes to bring your tractor in – that’s why we’re happy to take a call and discuss the details of your vehicles.
