About Island Tyres, Isle of Wight
Originally founded in 1992 in Lake, Isle of Wight, Island Tyres moved to a purpose-built facility on Newport Road in 2000, joining the Protyre team just eight years later.
Specialising in mechanical repairs, we’re pleased to offer customers on the Isle of Wight MOTs, vehicle diagnostics, air-conditioning recharging, battery, brakes and exhaust replacements. We also stock a complete range of tyres in Sandown, including premium tyres, quality tyres, economy tyres, winter tyres and run-flat tyres.
Our Newport Road facility opposite Morrisons boasts enough space to house an expansive selection of tyres, available for either immediate fitting on site or – with our exclusive local Isle of Wight mobile tyre fitting – at a location to suit you!
Providing tyres for standard cars, vans and SUVs as well as motorcycles, trucks and agricultural vehicles, the centre offers a unique, comprehensive range. With tyres available from all the leading manufacturers including Pirelli, Bridgestone, Michelin and Falken, you’ll find both premium and discount tyres on the Isle of Wight with Island Tyres.
Car MOTs at Island Tyres, Isle of Wight
Team Protyre at Island Tyres Isle of Wight offers MOT tests. During an MOT, we check for safety and performance issues to determine and guarantee that your vehicle is roadworthy. Tests are carried out by our professional technicians and take as little as one hour, and you can book in for a free safety check to identify any issues before the MOT test.
Every vehicle needs an MOT once it is over three years old. During the test, a wide range of mechanical components is covered, ranging from windscreen wipers, seatbelts, exhausts and emissions through to registration plates. If you need a cheap MOT on the Isle of Wight, don’t look elsewhere.
For newer cars, it’s vital that your warning lights aren't flashing up to indicate any problems, so it’s better to get those checked out in a car service beforehand. We also offer same-day MOT Newport Isle of Wight appointments. If a Newport or Sandown MOT isn’t convenient, we also proudly serve Northwood, Bowcombe, Blackwater, Downend, Wootton Bridge and surrounding IoW areas.

Isle of Wight Car Servicing FAQs
1. How often should you service your car?
We know that, when you’re living on the island, it never feels like you’ve driven far. However, the miles can add up surprisingly quickly, so we’d recommend following general advice to get your car serviced at least once a year. If you’re regularly going over to the mainland, interim check-ups every few months could be a good investment.
If you opt for a comprehensive service like our Gold package, your mechanic will advise you on how long you should wait before the next one. We’ll always be happy to help at Island Tyres on Newport Road if you’re unsure. It’s always worth remembering that regular servicing will prevent smaller issues from turning into potentially major and costly repairs.
2. What’s included in a car service?
A Protyre service is a check-up on your vehicle to ensure that everything is in good working order. As you cover more miles, gradual wear and tear will leave the components in your car in need of maintenance, repair or replacement.
Our Bronze package includes checks on vital systems including your vehicle’s electrical components, steering, suspension, exhaust and brakes, as well as an inspection of your engine and tyres. We offer extended service packages to build on this check-up service, ideal for cars with greater maintenance needs.
If you’d like to find out more about what we offer with our various service packages, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team at Island Tyres, Isle of Wight.
3. How much is a car service?
The cost of a service depends on a few factors, including your driving style and the specific needs of your vehicle. While certain cars need little intervention from our mechanics, others require complicated repairs and even replacement parts. If you need a service for an electric or hybrid vehicle, you can expect to pay a bit more.
You can find out more about the cost of car servicing with Island Tyres by checking out all our service options online. Our Bronze service package starts at £79, while the comprehensive Gold Package starts at £169.
4. How long do car tyres last?
You might be wondering when to change your car tyres ready for your next adventure. While it might be an easy task to put off, it’s important to remember that the minimum legal tyre tread is 1.6mm deep. Always replace your tyres when the tread falls lower than 3mm, and never wait until you’ve got no grip left.
If you have more tread on your tyres, you’ll also have more grip on the roads – so it’s sensible to keep your tyres fresh, regardless of the weather. It’s always worth including a free tyre check in your next trip to Island Tyres on the Isle of Wight.
5. What tyres does my car need?
The tyres you need will depend on not just the make and model of your vehicle but your driving style and individual requirements, too. If you’re unsure which to choose, we’ve made it easy to find the most suitable tyres for your car with our online search tool.
Simply enter your vehicle registration number and your postcode, and we’ll find the best tyres near you. Alternatively, if you know what you’re looking for, you can search by size to find the right fit. Supplying great tyres on the Isle of Wight is our speciality – so you’ll always be in safe hands.
6. What is wheel alignment?
Wheel alignment is the term for the repositioning of your vehicle's tyres. If you’re looking for wheel-alignment services near you, check out our free alignment check at Island Tyres. This allows our experts to ensure the proper placement of each wheel, guaranteeing even wear on your tyres and accurate handling.
If you’re wondering if wheel alignment is important, the short answer is yes. Misaligned tyres contribute to a lack of steering control, affecting cornering stability and road positioning. This puts you, your passengers and other road users in danger, so proper wheel alignment is vital to your safety on the roads.
7. How much is a vehicle diagnostic?
We offer diagnostic tests for all vehicles at £50, including VAT. Simply add our Diagnostic Plug-in & Report option to your basket if you’d like a diagnostic check. You can then choose a convenient time slot for you at Island Tyres on Newport Road, Isle of Wight.
