Peter James Motor Group Tyres Team
Tyres perform several functions. They support the weight of the vehicle, transmit acceleration and braking forces, change the vehicles direction and absorb irregulations in the road surface.
Considering the forces involved, tyres perform an important task every time your car is driven.
On wet roads in particular, worn tyres increase the risk of an accident. Well worn tread patterns limit the amount of force tyres can transmit to a wet road.
Tyres are probably one of the most overlooked components in a car. Considering when driving, they are our only contact with the road, it is alarming how little attention is paid to them.
Lifetime Tyre Guarantee:
To ensure peace of mind all tyres bought from and fitted by Peter James Motor Group come with a lifetime no quibble puncture repair guarantee.
Tyres will be repaired absolutely free of charge including balancing for the lifetime of the tyre as long as you own the car. Terms and conditions apply.
Terms and conditions:
Only tyres that can be repaired safely with a minimum tread depth of 2mm will be included in this offer.
Damaged or cut tyres either in the sidewall or in a position unable to be repaired safely are excluded.
Tyres worn excessively uneven, distorted, illegal or in the opinion of Peter James unsafe will also be excluded from this offer.
Take care of your tyres, check them periodically, not just for inflation, but also the tread. Spotting unusual wear marks may save you unnecessary aggravation and costs, as it may be an indication for other problems.
Air pressure is a vital ingredient for the performance of any tyre. Their tyres task is to carry the load of the vehicle, It's vitally important that the correct load of the vehicle, It's vitally important that the correct air pressure is maintained. While 'Under Inflation' will cause rapid irregular tyre wear, 'Over Inflation ' will damage the tyre structure, both leading to possible tyre failure. For best performance, maintain the air pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
The tread provides grip, the deeper the tread tyres have, the more grip they will deliver , especially in the wet conditions. To check your tyres tread depth look for the tread wear indicators - These are raised rubber strips in the bottom of the main tread grooves. When the tread is down to the same level as these, your tyre has reached its legal minimum tread depth. Which by law is 1.6mm! The fine for each defective tyre can be up to £2500 as well as 3 penalty points.
Tyre rotation is recommended at 10,000 mile intervals to balance tyre wear and increase overall tyre life. Some tyres are location specific and cannot be rotated. Tyres fitted with different tyre sizes front and rear may only be rotated left to right. The tyre may need to be dismounted for rotation purposes if it is directional.
Don't Forget Your Spare! Make sure that your spare tyre is always inflated to the correct air pressure and is in good condition.
Improperly Balanced Wheels Reduce Road Holding.
Also increasing wear of shock absorbers, struts, suspension, and chassis components. Annoying steering wheel and seat vibration appears from nowhere are fuel consumption goes up.
Wheels that are not balanced or are out of balance generally produce a vibration that is uncomfortable to drive in and results in premature wearing of suspension and steering components, rotating parts and tyres.
Correctly balanced wheels help to eliminate vibration and avoid premature wear caused by an imbalance in the rotating wheel and tyre assembly.
The first sign that your wheels may be out of balance is when your steering wheel starts to wobble above a certain speed. The light weight of modern cars means that they don't dampen down the vibrations caused by spinning wheels in the way that older, heavier vehicles could.
A driver may not always sense an imbalance at the steering wheel. It could be present with but dampened by the vehicle weight. This is why balancing is equally important for both front and rear wheels.
Wheels are balanced on a wheel balancing machine. The machine rotates the tyre and wheel assembly and automatically calculates the weight and location of the balance counter weight.
As a result of wheel balancing, you should notice a smoother ride and better wear from your tyres, again saving you time and money.
Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.
Wheel alignment can be affected by driving against a kerb, hitting a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. Alignment of wheels and tyres to the specification required by your vehicle is an important way to guarantee a smooth ride and to get the most out of your tyres.
The direction and angle at which tyres are set are both important. Wheel alignment or 'tracking' involves checking the direction and angle against vehicle manufacturers' specifications. These are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.
"Toe" refers to whether the front of the tyres are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart.
"Camber" is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre. The camber is set by the vehicle manufacturer, and can be affected by potholes in the road and may need to be adjusted periodically.
It's worth keeping an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, which could be caused by an incorrect camber setting.
