Other Service Information
If there is a mechanical problem with the vehicle or the tyre ordered does not match like-for-like to what is currently fitted, you may be asked to sign a Disclaimer for authorisation to proceed with the Service. Including but not exclusive to, a Disclaimer may be requested for:
- Fitting of a different tyre (size, OEM, tyre type, season, speed or load rating)

A Tyron Band is a mechanical device fitted on to the wheel and inside of the tyre on some motorhomes and caravans. If one of these vehicles is being booked for a fitting with us, this may be queried by an advisor to ensure the necessary time is allotted for this Service. As well as this, an additional cost is involved of £10 per Tyron Band needing the removal and re-fitment Service.
Locking Wheel Nut Removals
If your vehicle requires a Locking Wheel Nut Key to remove the wheels and this is missing or damaged for the appointment, a Locking Wheel Nut Removal service is available for an additional £10 per wheel when purchasing tyres, or £70 in total as a lone Service.
- This Service is not 100% guaranteed

- No air tools are part of our kit. These tools can cause overtightening, damage and cross threading.
