“Newbie here, but I thought I’d share my experience of etyres in Birmingham. Found them on Blackberry whilst being low-loadered home yesterday afternoon, following front n/s blow-out on M6 at Knutsford (missing tube from tyre-weld kit – Doh!). Thought I’d give them a go as I could not drive the car anyway so needed a home-type-service without a £90 call-out fee!
“The chap came round today, very professional and knowledgeable – even asked me to check the manual for the correct wheel nut torque? When was the last time they did that at Kwik-fit?
“OK so the price; my tyre of choice was the Toyo TR1; I have them on the rear of my C32 AMG and I am very impressed so I thought I’d match both the fronts (due for replacement anyway). 2 x 225/40 18Y (186 mph rating!) £232 inc VAT all fitted. Excellent value and about as cheap as you can get them.
“Had never of dreamed of using a call-out tyre service (don’t know why not to be honest?) until needing a home service, but now I shall not hesitate to use them and certainly would recommend Philip who fitted my front rubber; credit where credit is due I say.”

Tyres are the vehicle’s only point of contact with the road. The actual area of contact between the car and the road through the tyres is small, roughly equivalent to four size eight men’s shoes. Bald tyres – ’slicks’ – may be fine for a race car on a dry track, but no good at all for road vehicles on a wet road surface. Tyres treads are designed to pump water from the road surface and provide maximum grip. By the time the tread is worn down to the legal limit they will be unable to perform this task efficiently and MUST be replaced.
RoSPA recommends that worn tyres are replaced with an equivalent new unit well before the legal minimum tread limit of 1.6mm is reached – ideally as soon as they reach 3mm.
There is a fact sheet on the RoSPA website discussing Tread Depth and Wet Weather Stopping Distances.
The Right Tyres for the Vehicle
Motor vehicle manufacturers choose the type, make, size, profile, load carrying capacities and speed ratings to match their vehicles, adjusting the tyre pressures to give the optimum grip, ride and handling characteristics. Only change the type of tyres on your vehicle on expert advice from the vehicle manufacturer, or tyre manufacturer.
Phil – tyres Solihull writes: There are a lot of misconceptions about winter tyres and now we appear to be over the worst of the weather, our customers want to know if they can still drive on them in the summer.
The simple answer is yes, however, the best course of action is to store them in the summer otherwise they will wear out quite quickly.
We were delighted that so many customers chose to opt for winter tyres during the last few months, and they must have been pleased with themselves as they were able to keep their cars on the road, even when snow blanketed the region.
Winter tyres really are fantastic, especially on rear wheel drive cars, and they improve all areas of performance. But the biggest differences are in braking and traction – and the differences are monumental, as in more than 50 per cent.
Also remember that if you are planning to drive your car abroad during the next few months, winter tyres are compulsory in some countries and recommended in many others.
If you need winter tyres, etyres Solihull can supply and fit a wide selection to suit all budgets and cars. Plus we come to you and fit your new winter tyres at your home or work.
