    Car Tyres in Formby

    Car Tyres in FormbyWhat tyres are the standard ones for my vehicle? On a used car it is not safe to assume that the tyres currently fitted are the ones ideal for your vehicle. The manufacturers handbook is the obvious first place to check, but there are a lot of tyre sale websites that allow you to type in your registration and find the same manufactorer information e.g. http://www.kwik-fit.com/tyre-search.asp & http://www.national.co.uk/tyres/

    What do tyre codings mean. 175/65 R14 T means 175mm width, 65 aspect ratio or the tyre side expressed as a percentge of the tyre width, R (radial), 14" wheel diameter, T speed rating 118mph. For a comprehensive list of these codings visit http://www.which.co.uk/cars/driving/car-tyres/best-car-tyre-brands/understanding-tyre-markings/ for some good examples

    When do tyres need replacing? The legal minimum is 1.6mm depth of tread across the centre 3/4 of the tread for the whole of the tyre. However most suppliers will recommend replacing tyres when down to 3mm depth. Tyre depth can effect braking performance so it is important to get tyres replaced before they get too worn down.

    Repairs can often be performed safely on a veichle without the need for a new tyre. A puncture doesn't mean you need a new tyre. A good tyre fitter in Formby will be able to offer you good advice. Worn typres should always be replaced.

    Do I have to use a manufacturer main dealer for servicing? NO. Motorists are free to choose any garage to service their car without invalidating any manufacturer's warranty, providing the business is VAT registered, follows the manufacturer's servicing procedures, employs a suitably qualified mechanic and uses original parts, specified fluids or ones of matching quality.

    Car servicing packages? These may often be part of a new or used car sale from a retailer or as an add on package. These sort of packages should cover the cost basic servincing labour costs and typically oils and filters. They tend not to include any work required for brake discs, tyres, exhausts and batteries.

    It is always best to get a written quotation for a service beforehand. Always leave your contact number and ask that they confirm any extra work and costs with you before they are carried out.

    When buying a used car it is often worth asking for proof of the cars service history. It will show whether the vehicle has been maintained properly and may include work that could still be covered by a warranty.
