How Well Do You Know Your Exhaust?

Did you know that vehicles used for short journeys are prone to experience exhaust corrosion more quickly than those engaged in long distance journeys? Read on for more facts...

We’re Your Number 1 Choice Local Tyre Centre

The British weather delivers challenges to drivers; no matter how competent you are, the need to have the right tyres fitted for the optimum performance levels, whatever the weather conditions, is paramount. Let us help to ensure you get the correct tyres.

Summer Car Tyres Or Wet Weather Tyres?

Unique tread and composition qualities, substantial investment in development and focus on driver safety means that using the right car tyre is good old fashioned common sense. The tyres are the only part of any vehicle which have contact with the road.

Were You Ready For “The Beast from the East” Travel Conditions?

As a leading local tyre centre, we witnessed a sharp increase in enquiries about winter tyres which didn’t surprise our knowledgeable team. It’s ironic that when winter tyres are recommended but the weather isn’t too challenging that drivers shy away from an investment. 

Heavy Snow Requires Greater Efficiency Tyres

Winter tyres for remote areas in which roads aren’t treated makes good old-fashioned sense and in urban areas your driving distances and frequencies, experience of driving in snow, stress levels in bad weather and the risk of snow, ice and tricky journeys across the winter months are deciding factors.

Your Local Exhaust Centre

We can’t nag you from dawn until dusk about getting your tyre tread or the exhaust’s rattling checked any more than we can remind you to go to the dentist or visit your Aunty Flo. However, we can recommend that you contact us to guarantee smooth and safe operation of your transportation. ROSPA and a succession of governments have constructed strict guidelines about how efficiently and environmentally safe vehicles must be managed and maintained.

Local Tyre Fitting Services

Here at Thatcham Tyre and Exhausts we don’t believe that any customer should feel like they are just one more person in the long succession that we see every day. Each tyre assessment, tyre fitting services or exhaust task you bring to us deserves, and receives, 100% commitment, professionalism and expertise. You enjoy a friendly, informative service.

Car Exhaust Fitting Services are Vital

We appreciate that every car owner can’t be expected to be a mechanic, tyre fitter or exhaust expert but it is an area which should be monitored to ensure roadworthiness and adherence to legislation and environmental statutes. If something seems to be wrong, a strange noise or activity, for example, this could be a sign of an exhaust issue.

New website, same exceptional service levels


On behalf of Mick Jones and his team, welcome to Thatcham Tyre and Exhaust’s exciting new website built by Wysi of Berkshire.

We’ve decided to freshen our online appearance for 2017 and we hope that you find the site simple to use, accessible and informative. We know that customers don’t want to read reams of information or see industry jargon during a website visit so our webpages contain clear wording and images of what you need to know rather than a lot of unnecessary waffle and diverting background patterns that give you a headache.
