The condition of your tyres is crucial to the safety of your vehicle. If your tyres are worn, or at the wrong pressure, your ability to brake will be reduced and you may lose grip in wet weather. Punctures are also a problem – one thing you can be sure of, if you get a puncture, it will be at the most inconvenient time and place possible. If you find yourself in need of a puncture repair or tyre replacement services in Twickenham, your best option is to call in an expert from the AutoMend network. We have access to more than 9,000 members across the UK, and among them there are garages and mobile tyre fitters near you who can give you a great same–day service at the best prices in the area. They have the expertise to be able to tell you whether a punctured tyre is repairable, or if a new tyre needs to be fitted, and will advise on the most cost–effective way to solve your tyre–related problems.
Although we are a national network, we are proud to say that all our members are approved independent local van and car garages and mobile mechanics. When you contact one of our network members, you will be dealing directly with a local business, not with a franchisee from a large chain. This means you get a more personalised service from someone who is located in the Twickenham area, and you can easily get hold of them if there is a problem. Our members do much more than just repair and replace tyres, they can also offer wheel balancing and alignment, exhausts and MOT testing, plus they can solve problems with electronics in your car, and many of them offer breakdown and recovery services locally.
The correct tyre pressures for your vehicle should be listed in the vehicle handbook, and it’s important that your tyres are inflated to the correct psi (pounds per square inch). The figures may be different for front and rear tyres, so if you don’t know what the pressures should be, an AutoMend approved garage in or near Twickenham will certainly be able to advise you.
Did you know that your tyres probably lose up to 2psi each month, and more in hot weather? They may lose even more if you hit bumps too hard. Unless you have an integrated tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in place, manufacturers recommend a pressure check every 2 weeks. Checks should always include the spare tyre too, you never know when you will need to use it. Fortunately, TPMS is becoming more prevalent, and since 2014 most new cars have the system in place from new.
A low tyre pressure means that more of the tyre tread is in constant contact with the road than necessary. This can have implications including more rapid tyre wear, susceptibility to punctures, loss of fuel efficiency and increased exhaust emissions.
An uneven tyre pressure can be caused by a wheel dropping into a pothole or hitting a speed bump at too high a speed, causing the air to spill out around the rim. Uneven pressure causes uneven tyre wear and can affect braking. If your vehicle is fitted with TPMS, uneven pressure may cause a warning light to ignite on the dashboard.
A high tyre pressure is usually caused by over–inflation, and means that there is less of the tyre tread in contact with the road surface than there should be. You may be subject to a loss of traction when starting off, problems with longer braking distances, and of course the centre of the tyre will wear out more quickly than it should.
Other circumstances such as poor wheel balancing and alignment or steering and suspension problems can also cause uneven and excessive tyre wear.
