Hello. Thatcham Tyres and Exhausts are proud to be local, respected, cost effective and highly efficient. We couple our knowledge with dedication and friendliness that you don’t get from a national chain of exhaust centres. You’re just one of a long line of people and vehicles with them but our team know our customers and call many of them friends. We have seen several generations of the same family pass through the centre with their exhaust, tyre and realignment needs.
As an interested local exhaust centre team, we don’t think of you as a walking, talking money making device. You’re a person who we’ll happily answer questions for, offer advice and try to save money with suitable, always legal and safe, fixes so that you don’t ever pay more than you need to. For example, if we can weld to fix an issue we won’t tell you that a new exhaust is necessary. We go the extra mile so that you don’t have to.
Before you wonder if we’re too good to be true or start to search for a skeleton in Mick Jones or the team’s closet-garage, we’ll tell you about exhausts and the car exhaust fitting services we offer.
1.If you have any doubts about the functionality of your exhaust, please don’t ignore your instincts to save money. Get it checked. Did you know that faulty exhausts account for more deaths than road traffic accidents?
2.Remember: “A stitch in time saves nine.” Or less exhaust work in a vehicle’s case and this makes the bill nicer to read.
3.If the correct exhaust isn’t in stock for immediate fitting, it can normally be sourced within 30 minutes. Our car exhaust fitting services don’t waste your time.

Car exhaust fitting
Our team won’t baffle you with jargon but they will make your experience more enjoyable and stress free than you’d probably expect. Call in if….
You hear rattling. It’s likely that the exhaust has come out of alignment or that there is a crack or blockage.
You hear hissing or roaring sounds. An issue with the exhaust manifold, gasket or the tailpipe frequently offers audible clues like these.
If you notice separating joins or rusty components. Silencers suffer from corrosion caused by acidic moisture.
Your exhaust needs you
There are many demands on our time and adding an exhaust checking chore may not be welcome but ask yourself whether you’d be happy to take a flight if the pilot and engineers hadn’t taken all due care. You’d be running back to the terminal! So why leave your exhaust and safety to chance?
Peace of mind is priceless.
