Replacing Worn Tyres

Most new tyres have 8mm of tread and by law, it is mandatory to have a tyre replacement when the tread goes below 1.6mm. Tread pattern grooves are a vital performance feature onall tyres, particularly in the wet when they disperse water and keep the tyre in complete contact with the road surface.

Road users in Horley should be aware that tyre performance gets worse as the tread eats away and the process quickens up as tyres get closer to the legal limit. Check the tyre regularly and once it gets down to the 3mm mark, give our mobile tyre replacement specialistsa call.

Our mobile tyre services are best arranged at this stage than waiting until your tyres are perilously close to the 1.6mm depth. Our mobile tyre fitters change tyres on a regular basis and mend punctures too. Avoid overinflating tyresas this runs down the tread quicker. Ensuretyre pressures are kept within manufacturer guidelines at all times.

S&N Tyres are here to help with all types of tyre replacement so please contact us immediately if you have any concerns. Our mobile tyre replacement services are available throughout the whole of Horley and West Sussex.
