What to Expect From Your Local Tyre Centre

If you want to ensure your vehicle is safe, roadworthy and efficient, keeping your tyres in good condition is vital. Take a look at how Thatcham Tyre Centre can help…

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.

The Effects of The Long Hot Summer on Your Car

Summer 2018 hit some phenomenal temperatures and for some of us the advance in to autumn is a welcome break from the heat. So, if you feel that way, how well do you think your car tyres have coped during the hottest summer since 1976?

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.
