Kwik Fit understands that when a motorist has a problem with a tyre they want a quality service, value for money, expert advice and the convenience of a local solution.
In recognition that the range of tyre types and brands available today can be quite bewildering; our tyre experts are on hand to guide you through your tyre choices to make sure you get the right tyre for you and your car from the extensive range of tyre brands we have in stock.
To help you Kwik Fit has developed some general information about the tyre brands, characteristics of tyre tread patterns and tyre performance so you make the right choice of replacement tyre for your vehicle type and driving style.
Also, the law requires your vehicle to be fitted with the correct type and size of tyre for the vehicle type you are driving and for the purpose it is being used. There are also laws in place to govern all aspects of your tyres condition; most important of these is the minimum tread depth. The legal limit for minimum depth of the tread on your tyres is 1.6 millimetres, across the central ĺ of the tread going around the complete circumference of the tyre.
When you think that your tyres are the only point of contact your vehicle has with the road you can appreciate why it is vitally important that you select the right tyre type for the vehicle you are driving and for the purpose it is being used. We believe that motorist should get in to a habit of checking all four tyres every two weeks for pressures and general condition; donít forget to check the spare tyre too.
