ROAD CONDITIONS ADVICE
Since the winter of 2010/11 severely damaging our roads, the subsequent weather which compounded the damage, coupled with the governments reign on spending; has meant we have seen a noticeable increase in damage to vehicles wheels and tyres.
We have compiled this information sheet to help recognise and minimise the problems caused by this current situation....click here to see the attached info sheet.
All of our depots offer the service to repair your tyre, if ever faced with a puncture. Before we commit to any repair, our trained professionals will inspect your tyre to see whether it is suitable for repair or not - as there are strict guidelines we must follow when repairing any tyre. Run Flat tyres may also be inspected, and may be able to be repaired.

Car Tyres Questions
Where to inflate car tyres?
It is important to maintain the correct tyre pressure within your tyres – this will help vehicle safety and maintain optimal fuel efficiency. Bush Tyres can offer advice on optimal tyre pressures – and we offer a free inflation service for cars that come into our branches.
Where to change car tyres?
At Bush Tyres we can fit your new tyres in store, or with our mobile fitting service… meaning you don't have to leave your house to get your car tyre changed!
How to inflate car tyres?
To inflate a tyre, you need an air compressor. If you don't have one yourself, most petrol stations have one that you can use for a small cost (usually around 20p for 2 minutes). Remove the valve cap on the tyre and then follow the air compressor instructions. Ensure you know your recommended PSI for your vehicle before starting. Some air compressors allow you to set the required PSI and then inflate the tyre to that level. Bush Tyres can also inflate tyres so drop in to your local branch for a free test.

How to check car tyres?
To check the inflation of a tyre, you will need to use a tyre pressure gauge. Remove the caps and then attach the gauge to the tyre valve stem, following the instructions provided with the gauge. Compare the PSI reading with the recommended PSI for your vehicle. This can usually be found in the vehicle manual and sometimes in the rear door arch of your vehicle. To check the tread on a tyre, a great trick is the 20p test. Place a 20p coin into your tyre tread. If you can see the outer band of the coin above the tread, you need to replace the tyre as it is below the legal tread depth. Both of these checks can be carried out at Bush Tyres for free.
What are car tyres made out of?
Modern tyres are made out of a mixture of synthetic rubber, natural rubber, fabric and wire, along with carbon black and other chemical compounds.
When car tyres should be changed?
UK law states that your tyres must have a mimimum tread depth of 1.6mm. So to avoid 3 penalty points and fines of £2500 per offending tyre, it's essential that you replace your tyres before they reach that depth. There are recommendations from many car manufacturers advising that tyres should be replaced when they reach 3mm. Tests have shown that when tread depth drops below that point, stopping distances can increase dramatically, especially in wet weather. At Bush Tyres, we offer free checks so there's no excuse for not having your tyres checked regularly Just remember that when replacing tyres, you need to ensure that you are not breaking any laws regarding the type of tyres that are sharing an axle. Ask the experts at your local branch for more information and advise on this subject.
Which car tyres do i need?
The tyres you need depend on the car you drive and the driving you do. Luxury car drivers will likely want to focus on high performance. If you're doing the school run or just driving around town, safety will be a higher priority. If you do a lot of motorway driving, you may be looking more at noise reduction, fuel economy and comfort. Contact your local Bush Tyres branch to discuss your individual needs and we will be happy to provide our expert advice.

How car tyres are balanced?
At Bush Tyres we only use state of the art wheel balancing equipment to ensure you get the best out of your car tyres. “Wheel balancing” helps to ensure the weight of the wheel is even as it turns on the rim. The process of “Wheel balancing” should happen when you fit a new tyre – and the price is included in all fitted prices by Bush Tyres (Mobile or at depot). A tell-tale sign of wheel balancing issues are often a ‘vibration’ felt through the steering wheel that can be uncomfortable. Incorrect wheel balancing can cause premature wear of the tyres, suspension and steering components. Drivers might not always “feel” the vibration, that is why it is important to get your tyres checked regularly for balance to prevent uneven and rapid tyre wear. Your tyres can come out of balance through a variety of factors, like pot holes or hitting curbs. The wheel balancing machine rotates the tyre and wheel assembly and automatically calculates even the smallest differences in weight across the wheel. The balancing machine then highlights the exact position where a balance counter weight should be applied. Counter weights come in different sizes depending on the degree of the imbalance. At Bush Tyres we pride ourselves on our professional service – and we can offer a variety of different wheel weight options – from “coloured” weights to “Stick on” weights which are seated out of view in the wheel – all to try and ensure the best ascetic appearance on your alloys!
