Tyres and alloy wheels repairs, replacement
Our tyre service specialises in repair, replacement and sales of tyres and wheels in passenger cars and LCVs. Extensive experience and modern technologies allow us to handle modern tyres which change in line with technological progress.
Each tyre is developed for a specific task and useful life. If you do not know how old your tyre is, it is enough to find its DOT code, the last 3-4 digits in the code mean the date of manufacture. Since the year 2000 four uniform digits have been introduced identifying the tyre. The first two give the week of the year, and the last two the year of manufacture. For example, 2415 means that the 24th week of 2015. As you know, with time the rubber the tyre was made of loses its properties and therefore tyres should be replaced every 5-6 years. The tread is also subject to wear, each tyre has a so-called block in the tread groove. It is an indication of the minimum tread thickness defined by the manufacturer. The recommended thickness of a summer tyre is 3 mm and of a winter tyre 5 mm. After this limit has been exceeded, the tyre must be replaced.
It is common knowledge that tyres in the car are the basic element of each vehicle which is in direct contact with the pavement we are driving on. This is why it is so important for the tyres to meet all the required parameters in order to ensure maximum comfort and safety. At our garage, we guarantee quick replacement and inspection of the condition of tyres in your car.
