As well as offering a wide range of tyres to suit all vehicles, including 4x4s, run-flats and increasingly popular winter tyres, etyres Loughborough also carry out puncture repairs, supply and fit batteries and install Tyron safety bands.
Our mobile tyre fitting service is very popular in Loughborough, an historic town steeped in history and famed for its University and Colleges. It is also home to the world’s largest bell foundry, John Taylor Bellfounders and ‘The Sock’, an award-winning contemporary sculpture by Shona Kinloch, which celebrates the woollen and hosiery industries, so vital in Loughborough’s early industrial development.
As we move into the colder months, we are regularly asked “are winter tyres worth having?” and we are always happy to explain the advantages and benefits of having them fitted.
Winter tyres have a different compound and tread pattern to regular tyres. In very cold weather, when the temperatures drop below 7C which occurs a lot in our area, your regular tyres become harder, less elastic and consequently suffer from reduced grip. However, winter tyres are manufactured to remain more flexible, which means they offer better grip and performance. Data from the Department of Transport has found that the percentage of UK accidents caused by skidding in winter weather is 48 per cent, while those caused in the dry is 11 per cent, therefore, winter tyres are a great way of keeping going this winter and also staying that little bit safer on the roads when temperatures drop and driving conditions become more hazardous.
The next question our customers ask is whether they are worth the expense. etyres Loughborough supply and fit a wide range of winter tyres to suit all budgets and our economy range start from £250 for a full set. We always advise that winter tyres are a great investment if you have to use your vehicle, even in hazardous driving vehicles or if you live in an area that is badly affected by adverse weather conditions, such as in a remote village, where they roads are not gritted.
In these cases the more pertinent question should be: can you afford not to fit winter tyres?

With the Met Office warning the UK could be facing one of its wettest winters ever there is no time like the present to make sure your tyres can handle anything the weather has to throw at them over the next few months.
Amid claims the conditions are perfect for a series of powerful Atlantic storms and that the next three months will be wetter than average, etyres Loughborough recommend you spare a few minute to carry out three basic checks:
Tread depth – it is vital to make sure you have at least the minimum legal limit of 1.6mm across the central three quarters of each tyre, around its entire circumference, because the tread pattern helps to remove water from the road surface, allowing the tyre to grip the road properly and minimise the risk of aquaplaning.
Pressure – check your tyres have the correct air pressure, because under-inflated tyres can affect handling and grip, potentially altering your cars behaviour on the road. Details of the correct pressures can be found in the vehicle manufacturer’s handbook, inside the fuel filler cap or on the driver’s door sill.
Condition – a visual inspection of your car tyres is also needed to check their overall condition. Any objects which have become embedded in the tread should be removed. If any cuts, lumps or bulges are found it is likely the tyre made need a puncture repair or to be replaced with a brand new tyre.
If you notice you have a problem with your tyres, whether you need a puncture repair or a brand new tyre, etyres Loughborough will come to you to get you up to speed again. We won’t leave you high or dry – whatever winter weather.
