CHESTER PRAISE

Continental tyres fitted to my merc slk by etyres,no fuss,on time so easy to arrange,thank you etyres chester.
Mrs Hammond, Little Sutton – 13 May 2014

Having had a puncture I ordered tyres from etyres Chester. Bearing in mind my car wasn’t at my address, I arranged to meet the fitter at my car the next day. When he arrived [on time] I realised I had forgotten my car keys, without any hesitation he offered to take me back home to collect them, which we did. He then changed two tyres for me and gave me advice on my spare wheel to save me money. It was so refreshing to see someone go the extra mile and no fuss created.

A family friend recommended etyres to me, so I gave them a call one lunchtime, the next day my tyres were fitted by 11am! What a pleasant experience from start to finish. Hassle free. Thank you etyres Chester.

Caravan tyres
May 12, 2014

With spring under way and the promise of summer just around the corner if you haven’t dusted off your caravan yet now is the perfect time to give it a quick once over before you go anywhere.

Caravan tyres can often become overlooked as they do not do the same levels of mileage as cars making it more likely that you will need to change the tyres before they reach the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm due to age rather than wear. Check your tyres for signs of the tyre wall perishing such as cracks in the sidewall. If you do spot any cracks or other damage such as embedded objects or bulges during this inspection don’t forget that we can come to you at your home or caravan storage site so you don’t need to worry about manoeuvring the caravan to your local garage on dangerous tyres.

It is recommended that you change your caravan tyres after five years, regardless of their condition, for more information on caravan tyres and how to find out their age click here.

If you have any questions or would like a quote etyres Chester can advise you on which caravan tyres are the best for your needs. We supply and fit a wide range of caravan tyres and all prices include our mobile fitting service, a new valve, balancing, environmentally friendly disposal of the old tyres and VAT.

We also supply and fit Tyron Safety Bands so if you have them fitted to you caravan or motorhome just let us know when you book. If you would like more information on Tyron Safety Bands click here or call us on 01244 439 742

What is the legal tyre tread depth?
March 19, 2014

Many of our etyres Chester customers are not sure how to tell when their car tyres are bald and need to be replaced and so we always show them a simple test they can use in future.

The legal tyre tread depth minimum is 1.6mm for all car, 4×4, van, caravan, motorhome and trailer tyres and all you need to find out if yours are still safe and legal is a 20p coin.

Simply place the upright 20p coin into the tread and if the outer part of the coin cannot be seen the tyre is within the legal limits. If you can’t see the outer edge it is a good indicator that your tyres need replacing as soon as possible.

You can also make sure your tyre tread depth is within the legal limits by looking for the wear bar indicators in the tread pattern. These are small bars which appear between the tread blocks and have been set at 2mm to allow you to clearly see when the tyre is getting close to renewal.

Although the legal limit is 1.6mm, the leading safety and motoring groups recommend you change your tyres when they wear down below 3mm in order to maintain safe handling and braking distances on wet roads.
