At Thames Motor Group we stock a large range of tyres for all your vehicle requirements, including Dunlop, Continental, Michelin, Goodyear and Bridgestone. We also know that replacing your tyres can be a costly process so we also have a good selection of value tyres available, depending on your needs. Additionally, you can purchase from us safe in the knowledge that we will price match, should you find your tyres cheaper elsewhere.
We understand that the knowing what tyre to purchase can be unclear so our manufacturer trained technicians are on hand to advise you on the most appropriate tyre for your vehicle.
The tyres on your vehicle have to comply with the legal UK requirements depending on their driving purpose; different tyres are required for different vehicles. It's also important to monitor the tyre tread – the minimum legal requirement is 1.6 millimetres, although we would advise changing your tyre before the tread reaches this level. The lower the tyre tread, the less able the tyre is to grip the road effectively and in wet conditions this has an even bigger impact on safe driving. It is also important to make sure that your tyre is correctly inflated as this can affect the life of the tyre.
