Whatever vehicle you drive, from a small city car to a commercial vehicle or tractor, they all have one thing in common; the tyres are the only part in contact with the road. It is therefore crucial to ensure that they are in good condition as poor condition tyres can be dangerous, illegal, waste fuel and invalidate your car insurance.
Here at Bobs we offer a quality tyre-fitting service with a quick turnaround and great value for money for all your car, commercial and agricultural tyre needs.
Our experienced tyre-fitting team will guide you to the best choice of tyre from our wide range of premium and budget tyres.
We stock all the major tyre brands including Pirelli, Bridgestone, Continental, Michelin, Goodyear and Dunlop, with next day delivery for most non-stock items.
The legal limit is 1.6mm of tread depth across the central ¾ of the tyre all the way round. Anything less than this seriously compromises your safety and can earn you a fine of up to £2,500 and 3 points on your Driving Licence, per tyre.
All major manufacturers put tread wear indicators into the grooves of their tyres, so that when they are flush with the main surface of the tyre, you know it’s time to change your tyres.
Call in and we will check this for free at any time there’s no need to book. We will only advise you to change your tyre when you actually need to and if you have life left in your tyres we can give you advice of how much.
You should check your tyre pressures every two weeks and before any long trip, to ensure they meet the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Tyre pressures should be checked cold (tyres not having run for at least 2 hours, or having run for less than 2 miles at low speed). The correct tyre pressure can be found in the vehicle’s handbook and sometimes on a sticker on the door jam or fuel cap.
Call in and we will check and adjust your tyre pressures to the manufacturer’s recommendations free.
Visually inspect your tyres for cuts, cracks and bulges, as these can lead to slow punctures or blowouts.

To enable us to process your enquiry there is certain information we need from your tyres. Some of the information we need is shown in the picture above. Along with this it is also beneficial to us to have the tyre make and model.
With this information we can give you an accurate quote and avoid any disappointment later.
