Did you know that Golden Globe winning actor Idris Elba started his working life as a tyre fitter?

Idris Elba

The self-confessed petrolhead was a tyre fitter as a teen and went on to spend two years building Ford Fiestas in Dagenham. “I’ve been around cars all my life,” he told the Sun motoring columnist Rob Gill. “I love them.”

While we can’t promise our etyres fitters boast the same movie-star looks as the award winning star of the hit TV series Luther and the epic movie Mandella, we can confirm they share his passion for their work – even when the UK weather is as bitter and harsh as it has been during the past few days and will continue into February.

Our nationwide etyres team pride themselves on offering a first-rate mobile tyre fitting service, which means they come to your home or work – whatever the weather – to fit your new tyres or car battery, so you don’t have to venture out into the cold or onto the treacherous roads.

The funny thing is, Marti, the owner of our etyres Walsall mobile tyre fitting branch, and a big Idris Elba fan, actually spotted this little nugget of information about a year ago, and was quick to send out the message that if he ever wanted to return to his old job, there would always be a position open for him covering their very busy area!
