RADIAL CAR TYRE COMMERCIAL VAN SERVICE GILLINGHAM MEDWAY

Autoexperts Medway in Gillingham are proud to have established a superb reputation. Firstly we give a high quality car, van or commercial radial tyre services. Furthermore our garage is extremely competitive in price for the service we provide to the general public in Gillingham.

Tyres:

The tyre is made from rubber compounds and has a tread which contacts the road and sidewalls which support the tread. The compounds are rated and each tyre performs differently in different conditons. Call our reception and as a tyre retailer we will inform you of the rating that pertains to each tyre we sell. As a result our staff will give you the three most noteworthy ratings, Fuel economy, wet grip and noise performance.

The tyre gets its strength through metal cords below the tyre tread and ply which bind the tread together. It is able to form an air tight seal because air presses the bead against the wheel rim.

On many occasions we can perform a same day service. Due to the fact that we have two deliveries a day to Gillingham from our commercial wholesale suppliers. This enables us to offer a wide range in choice of tyre and helps to keep the cost of replacing them down.

New or Part Worn?

Take our advice and choose a new tyre every time.

You need to consider when deciding, is it really worth it? There are not that many part worn tyres available and a part worn tyre is part worn for a reason. Remember it is part WORN OUT as the MOT pass for tread depth is 1.6mm. Consequently a tyre with 4mm tread only has 2.4mm of usable tread thickness before it becomes borderline again. As a result under normal driving conditions you will probably be replacing the same tyres a year later.

Tyre and Safety:

The tyre is the only contact with the road and is designed to provide a good road grip. As a result the tyre is keeping your car or van safe and allows for a comfortable ride. The tyre is inflated with air through a Schrader valve. First of all this valve is designed to retain the air in but it also allows the air to be pumped through to achieve the correct pressure. The wheel is then balanced by using wheel balance weights to avoid wheel vibration.

A typical Radial Tyre marking Example: 175/65R/14 88 H

  • 175 – The tyre width in millimeters
  • 65 – The side wall height is 65% of the tyre width
  • R – Radial ply tyre
  • 14 – Wheel diameter in inches
  • 88 – The load rating (refer to individual table not included)
  • H – The speed rating (refer to individual table not included)
