Autotechnics fit tyres at very competitive prices

We often have to remind our customers that Autotechnics fit tyres at very competitive prices.

Because of clever marketing, most people consider the ‘fast fit’ outlets as being better value than their service garage. This simply isn’t the case!

We carried out some price research in December 2005. The results show that Autotechnics were in fact cheaper than an internet mail order tyre service and the ‘Kwik Fit’ fast fit chain. The prices include the tyre, fitting, balance, valve replacement, environmental disposal and VAT.

Here are our findings:

Tyre: Continental Premium Contact 195/65/15H

mytyres.com £65.27
(Includes Postage and fitting price at a designated fitting centre to be arranged by customer)
Kwik Fit £85.50
Autotechnics £63.27

So, not only can you save money by choosing us to renew your tyres, you also have the added assurance that our highly trained, conscientious technicians will be taking every care with your wheels. It also has to be said that our reception/waiting area is probably far more inviting than those quick fit outlets!

Tyre tips!

Tyres have to be replaced long before their specified life has been reached principally because of rapid or uneven tread wear. The most common causes of avoidable tread wear are:

  • Under-Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the edges of the tread.
  • Over-Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the centre of the tread.
  • Faulty brakes or shock absorbers - Can cause flat bald spots around the tread of the tyre.
  • Incorrect wheel alignment - Will cause rapid wear along the inside or outside edges of the FRONT tyres. If you strike a kerb or hit a pot hole - the delicate settings of the steering gear geometry are invariably misaligned which will result in this sort of wear. Wear and tear in the steering components can also knock the wheel alignment out of true - so it's vital that you have the front wheels realigned every 3 months or 3000 miles.

Cuts, breaks and abrasions to the tyre casing can penetrate deep into the inner fabric of the tyre and can be extremely dangerous - capable of causing high speed blow-outs. However, penetration of the tread by a nail or shard of glass or metal can often be safely repaired provided the damage is limited to the inner part of the tread area.
