Our Personal & Individual Business Lease maintenance agreements include tyre repair & replacement and operate a no-quibble tyre policy, due to wear and tear or accidental damage. This does not include damage as a result of deliberate misuse, theft or vandalism.

We will replace any tyre where the tread is at 2mm or less (UK legal minimum is 1.6mm) over the central three-quarters of the tyre. We will always replace your worn or damaged tyres with our preferred premium brand tyre.


Looking after your tyres

As the only link between your vehicle and the road, it's important to know your tyres are safe and keep them well maintained, for yourself and other road users. Here are our top tips for keeping your tyres in good condition. 

Check your tyre pressure

Tyre inflation pressure significantly affects vehicle steering, handling and braking. An incorrectly inflated tyre can increase vehicle fuel consumption and is likely to wear abnormally or more rapidly than normal. Inflation pressure should be checked a minimum of once a month and always before long journeys. Tyres should be at ambient temperature when the inflation pressure is checked, in order to get an accurate reading. Don’t forget the spare. An accurate tyre pressure gauge is required.

 

Check your tyre tread

Tyre tread depth affects the performance and safety of your vehicle in poor weather. In the UK, the minimum tread pattern depth required by Law is 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre tread width. Regular checking of the tyre tread depth is simple to do and enables timely replacement of worn tyres and can help identify other potential issues such as misalignment and incorrect inflation pressure.

 

Wheel alignment

Tyre inflation pressure significantly affects vehicle steering, handling and braking. An incorrectly inflated tyre can increase vehicle fuel consumption and is likely to wear abnormally or more rapidly than normal. Inflation pressure should be checked a minimum of once a month and always before long journeys. Tyres should be at ambient temperature when the inflation pressure is checked, in order to get an accurate reading. Don’t forget the spare. An accurate tyre pressure gauge is required.

 

Good driving habits

Although wear and tear is inevitable for a tyre in service, you can adapt your driving habits to make your tyres last as long as possible. Excessive braking, acceleration, stop/start and hard cornering will cause your tyres to wear much more quickly, smooth your driving out. Driving carefully over uneven surfaces, potholes and speed humps will help avoid tyre impact damage and potential wheel misalignment. Avoiding dirty areas of the road, gutters and ghost islands will reduce the likelihood of punctures.
