TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners
  • Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users
  • Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre

 

Facts & figures

What our customers think

The service, integrity, honesty and quality of service are exemplary! Wish more businesses were like this one. I went there to get a Pirelli P7 fitted. Their prices are very competitive - £105 versus the £159 I recently paid at KwitFit! I was replacing the tyre because of a puncture; they checked the tyre and told me they could repair it, So, £15 rather £105, A massive saving! Since my visit, I have told all of my friends to go there for any tyres they require. Five-Star service!

Michael Passmore - April 2017

Super fast puncture repair on 50% worn Michelin Primacy - The staff at Tyre Brigade confirmed that a visible screw penetration was repairable with no 'advice' pressure given to replace the tyre as is generally encountered at the big chains - Puncture repaired, wheel re-balanced and job completed within 20 mins for £15 while I waited. - No wonder there was a constant flow of customers arriving for new tyre fittings, while I was there. Tyre Brigade will be my first stop for my next set of new tyres. Sincere compliments on the excellent no-nonsense service - A genuine breath of fresh air!

Andrew North Watford - October 2016

I always use the tyre brigade as I find the staff really friendly and knowledgeable. The manager, Luke, always puts himself out to help you with any problem you may bring him and is always very fair with the prices.
