Take the Tyre Change Challenge

By John SwiftCompany14th May 2020

Picture the scene: you’re driving along without a care in the world, when all of a sudden you hear a flapping noise from one of your wheels. You get out to assess the damage and it soon becomes clear that you’ve got a puncture. What do you do?


If your first reaction is to reach for your phone, you can forget it – there isn’t any signal. In fact, it doesn’t look like there’s any civilisation for miles. There’s only one option: you’re going to have to get your hands dirty.

How confident are you that you’d know where to start?

If you’re nodding your head eagerly, you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve created a tool to see how you fare.

The Tyre Change Challenge puts you in a virtual roadside environment with nothing more than a toolkit and your wits. Here you’ll have to use your brain to unscrew a locking wheel nut and fit a fully inflated tyre. Sound easy? You’ll also have to contend with a ticking timer and a whole host of sneaky red herrings.

Will you be a tyre tortoise or a ferocious fitter? Unfasten your seatbelt and jump right in.

How long do Tyres On The Drive take to change a tyre?


If you only need one tyre changing, your car should be ready in around 20 minutes, give or take (with our car service). But it’s often wise to replace them in pairs, so that you have new tyre tread on both sides of your vehicle. This gives you the most balanced drive. The tyre type and size will also affect how long it takes to replace it.


The faster way to fix a flat


Book before 6:30 pm and we can usually come and fix your tyre the following day, complete with supplying a suitable replacement tyre if you need one. Our mobile tyre fitting service comes to you. That means if your car is on your drive, you’re free to sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home, instead of waiting in a noisy, draughty local garage.

We save customers who use our mobile tyre fitting services over their local garage an average of 2.5 hours – so we’re both faster and more comfortable than the competition! What’s more, our price promise means we will beat the price on any like for like quote.
