A typical tyre size found on the side wall could read :-
in which case the above numbers and letters refer to the following :-
185 - the section width of the tyre (shown in mm)
60 - aspect ratio (or profile) of the tyre i.e. side wall height = 60% of section width
R - denotes that the tyre has a radial construction
14 - the rim diameter (shown in inches)
H - the speed rating, or maximum speed of the tyre
All tyres will have their sizing illustrated in this same fashion, so when phoning for quotes, all of this information will be required in order to receive an accurate estimate for replacement cost.
Tread depth and the legal requirements
The legal minimum tread depth for car and similar tyres in the United Kingdom is 1.6mm throughout a continuous band comprising the central three quarters of the breadth of the tread and round the entire circumference of the tyre. If you are ever worried that the tread depth of any of your tyres does not fulfil the legal criteria, then pop in for a free, no obligation tyre check. We could save you the inconvenience of a police officer doing a free check for you!
Tyre condition (especially side wall)
The condition of both the tread area and the side wall of your tyres are critical for road safety. Age can affect the condition of your tyres, as can incorrect tyre pressures (see below). You should check the condition and pressure of your tyres on a regular basis, as this may prevent unnecessary future problems and prolong the life of your tyres.
Correct tyre pressures are critical for optimum braking performance, maximum grip and in prolonging the life of your tyres. Check your vehicle handbook or contact us to find out the correct tyre pressures for your car.
Incorrect tyre pressures will cause shorter tyre life through more rapid wear. Low tyre pressures will be detrimental to fuel consumption, and could wear your tyres unevenly. High tyre pressures reduce the contact patch with the road, and therefore sacrifice road grip.
A proper exhaust system performs quietly – and efficiently. If you think that your vehicle is starting to get noisy, it may be time for a silencer or pipe replacement.Exhaust Pipes & Silencers – We supply and fit pipes silencers for most vehicles on the road today.

Sensors - The more complex vehicles are getting the more advanced and varied the sensors are getting. Most people have heard of an oxygen or O2 sensor, but now there are temp sensors, pressure sensors, NoX sensors and more. These can cause all sorts of issues with engine management and emmisions. We can test and rectify all manner of faults on these systems
