Tread and tyre pressure are the two critical factors to tyre safety. Tyre tread will help your vehicle to grip the road surface when braking and cornering. Driving on under-inflated tyres will use more fuel, while driving on over-inflated tyres can affect vehicle handling and overall wear.
Tyres are a routine check with all vehicle services.
Did you know: Legally, treads must be at least 1.5mm deep across three quarters of the tread pattern around the entire tyre. However, if you have tread depth indicators in the principal grooves then you must have at least 1.5mm tread depth in these areas.
Wheel Alignments are important to the handling of your car; they also improve fuel economy and extend tyre life.
Some common problems encountered when your wheels are out of alignment include:
Driving danger signs: Steering difficulties, Wheel is difficult to turn, Pulls to the left or right, Vibrates
Tyre wear shows signs of: Uneven wear on one side, Feathering, Flat Spotting
The results include: Improved Driver Safety, Improved Handling, Increased Fuel Efficiency, Extended Suspension Life, Minimized Tyre Wear, Improved Steering.
Exhausts & Mufflers
A clean car exhaust system is a sign that your vehicle is running well. If your car exhaust seems loud or is dirty, it’s best to get it checked out.
We can inspect your exhaust system in as little as 10 minutes, and exhaust inspections are included in all vehicle services. The team will also check that your car exhaust system is not leaking, which can lead to carbon monoxide fumes being released inside your vehicle.
vWe can install and repair both standard and modified car exhaust systems on vehicles and on all shapes and sizes.
Did you know: A simple way to check your exhaust system is to look at the panels around the exhaust pipe. If they are grey and dirty, your exhaust is not running as cleanly as it should be – come in and see us for our expert opinion.
