Not many people know that as well as being the UK’s largest independent chain of fast fit and mechanical centres, Protyre also provides tyres and tyre fitting services for a number of major motor racing series.

We have partnerships with the likes of Michelin, Pirelli, Toyo, Kumho, Continental and Bridgestone to be the official trackside supplier of tyres for:
•Porsche Carrera Cup
•FIA Formula E
•Protyre Formula Renault & Renault Clio Series
•Michelin Ginetta Supercup
•Ginetta Juniors
•Protyre Ginetta GT5 Challenge
•Dutch Supercar Challenge
•Porsche Club
•GT Challenge

Pretty impressive list, but you may be wondering what the high octane world of motor racing has to do with what you need from your local tyre fitter.

Well, there’s one really important link between the adrenaline-fuelled racing environment and your (relatively) calm Protyre centre – our people.

The technicians and fitters who travel up and down the country, and around the world, fitting tyres at races are the same people that work on your vehicle in your local centre.

That means we can bring the same level of technical expertise and quality service from the pit lane to the fitting bay. That level of knowledge and experience is one of the reasons we are the local centre you can trust.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter if the vehicle is a family car, or a high performance racing car. To us, all vehicles need to be fitted with the right tyres and our customers demand the highest standards of service and care.

So the next time you bring your car into one of our 80+ centres, you’ll know the person working on it could be doing the same thing at a race track.

That’s all for the time being, but we’ll be back soon with some news about our involvement in FIA Formula E.
