Close x etyres tyre size guide


Here at etyres Sutton Coldfield we are always pleased when our customers take the time to write a review on Trustpilot, the independent review website for online retailers, about our mobile tyre fitting service.

Mrs Gaffney wrote the following after we fitted a Continental tyre to her Mercedes Benz:

Amazing Service
“The whole process was so easy and efficient. There were no unexpected charges. The fitter showed me the problem with my tyre before he did anything else and I think the job was finished within about ten minutes. I have already recommended the service to several of my friends and would definitely use etyres again.”

Here at etyres we fit van tyres, car tyres, 4 x 4 tyres, runflat tyres and caravan tyres. We have a wide range of tyres at all different prices.

Wrap up your tyre orders this autumn and save money with etyres Sutton Coldfield
October 15, 2014

Autumn has definitely arrived this week in Sutton Coldfield. The rain is pouring down and the mornings are getting dark and cold. The heating has come on and the etyres Sutton Coldfield tyre fitters are kitted out in their etyres sweatshirts and fleeces – it will soon be time to put the hats and gloves on too. But the moment we get a dry and mild day, we recommend you spare a few minutes to give your car a thorough inspection before winter sets in to ensure you stay safe on the roads.

Check your water bottle, anti freeze, screen wash and most importantly of all, your tyres. Tyres have a hard time during the wet weather and the winter months. If your tyres are worn and have less than 3mm of grip you may find that you don’t have very good handling and could even aquaplane, which could lead to you having an accident.

The legal tyre tread depth minimum limit is 1.6mm and you can either check it using a tread depth checker or, if you don’t have one, use a 20p piece. Simply place a 20p coin into the main tread grooves of the tyre. If the outer band of the 20p coin is obscured when inserted in to the tread, then the tyre has sufficient tread depth. However, if the outer band is visible, it may be below the legal minimum will almost certainly need replacing as soon as possible. If you get caught driving on tyres below 1.6mm you can face a fine of up to £2,500 and three points on your drivers licence – and that is per illegal tyre!

Our customers benefit enormously from our mobile tyre fitting service, which means you don’t have to go out in bad weather and take your car to a garage or fast fit depot, we come to your home or work to fit your new tyres.

These generous discounts are applied to all the tyres we supply and fit, including all the well-known brands, such as Falken, Toyo, Continental, Michelin, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Dunlop, Goodyear, Hankook, Nexen, Firestone, Vredestein, Yokohama and many more.

We are offering hot deals on new tyres as temperatures are set to drop
October 6, 2014

With heavy rain and colder temperatures forecast for October, the launch of the Tyre Safety Month campaign couldn’t have come at a better time.

The Tyre Safety Campaign is an annual event organised by TyreSafe, the tyres safety organisation to raise the importance of correct tyre maintenance and dangers of worn and defective tyres. This year the campaign is focusing on driving with adequate tread depth in wet weather, following the worst winter on record in 2013/2014.

Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, said: “The weather last winter was truly treacherous and at times like these, it’s essential that your tyres are safe and legal.”

The legal minimum tread depth limit is 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the breadth of the tread and around the entire circumference. However, many safety and motoring groups recommend replacing your tyres once they wear below 3mm, because after this their performance deteriorates, especially in relation to wet braking.

You can check your tread depth by using either a tyre tread depth gauge or following the steps shown by Vicki Butler Henderson in our short video.
