Tyre fitting: What should you bring to your local tyre garage?
After buying your tyres online with Protyre, the next step is to get them fitted at your local tyre garage on the date you choose. We make this process quick and simple so you know exactly where you need to go and when you need to be there.
There is one important thing you need to bring with you when it’s time for your local tyre fitting. For any vehicle with locking wheel nuts fitted, we’ll need the special key in order to remove the wheel(s) from your vehicle.
Where is my locking wheel nut key?
To ensure that our team of mechanics and local tyre fitters can service your vehicle as quickly as possible, you need to find your locking wheel nut key and leave it in an obvious place for us.
It can either be found in your glovebox or underneath your boot lining. If your vehicle has a spare wheel fitted, it could even be underneath that. It's a small, round component that looks like a bolt. Make sure you keep it safe once you find it.
How to choose the right new tyres online
With so many factors to consider when you are looking to buy tyres online, it can be tough to be sure that you’re making the best choice.
You can easily find out the speed rating, load rating and fuel economy of a tyre, which could all make a difference to your driving experience. You can also think about whether you need summer or winter tyres, or something for all four seasons.
We know that tyre label information can seem overwhelming when you’re buying new tyres online. If you're planning to get your tyres fitted locally, it's important to ensure that you order the right ones for your vehicle, as it will help our team to get the job done as quickly as possible. Here are a few factors to consider:
Your driving style
Your driving habits will directly impact the longevity, wear, and ultimately the roadworthiness of a tyre.
Making a conscious effort to drive smoothly can prolong the life of your tyres. But habits like driving too fast, quick cornering, and heavy braking will cause exacerbated or uneven wear. As a result, you might need to buy tyres more often.
Seasonal tyres and driving conditions
· Summer tyres are designed to provide the highest safety performance at temperatures above 7°C. They're ideal for use from April until September. With innovative rubber compounds, they provide good grip and handling on dry and wet roads.
· Winter tyres come with safety features that offer drivers enhanced stability and greater control on the road. This includes extra grooves and sipes to provide greater resistance to aquaplaning, as well as rubber compounds that can endure colder conditions. Many also feature specific tread patterns for improved traction in rain or snow.
· All-season tyres can be used throughout the year in any weather conditions. Also known as all-weather tyres these are designed to perform in a variety of weather conditions so you can rely on them year-round.These tyres are more suited to smoother drivers.
In some cases, you may need to buy homologated tyres for your car. These are tyres designed specifically to be fitted on a particular model of car, such as a Porsche 911. It can take years to develop and supply homologated tyres for Original Equipment (OE). This cutting-edge process needs to ensure that the tyres complement the key features of each specific vehicle.
If your vehicle requires homologated tyres, please get in touch with your local tyre fitters before you order online.
Legal tyre tread requirements: What you need to know
In the UK, it's a legal requirement to check that your vehicle is safe to drive. Part of this process involves checking the tread on your current tyres is at least a certain depth. The legal minimum limit is 1.6mm for cars and light vans and 1mm for motorcycles and larger vehicles.
As a driver, it’s essential that you meet this requirement. If not, you could get a fine of £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre. This can rise to £5,000 for a goods vehicle or one that’s built to carry more than eight passengers.
Knowing how to check and inspect tyre tread could prevent disqualification from driving and will keep you and your passengers safe.
How to check your tyres are legal
The best way to check if your tyres are legal is with the 20p test. It’s a quick and easy way to check your tyres are above the legal limit.
You should always remember to check at least three locations around each tyre. This is because tyres can wear unevenly for a number of reasons – including heavy braking, aggressive acceleration, poor inflation, or misaligned wheels.
If you think your tread is reaching the minimum depth or your tyres are nearly at the end of their life, it’s time to replace them. We can help you find and buy tyres online, with local tyre fitting available at one of our 180+ garages nationwide.
