Hey Fixter, how often should I change my tyres?

On average, tyres should last between three to five years, or between 30,000 to 60,000 miles. This can vary greatly between different drivers and different tyre types.

Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

What is included in a car tyre check?

Our experienced mechanics will visually inspect the condition and tread of all of your tyres.

They can then advise whether or not they think replacements are needed, or if it’s time to swap your front and rear tyres.

Kia

Kia Motors Corporation (widely known as Kia Motors) is South Korea’s second-largest automobile manufacturer, behind their parent company, the Hyundai Motor Company.

They were initially established in December 1944, over 70 years ago, as a steel tubing and bicycle parts manufacturer who started building cars in the 1970s.

Coming from a background of building cars under licence for the likes of Fiat, Mazda and Peugeot, it wasn’t until the 1980s when Kia started to produce vehicles under their own brand name, and only more recently were they to become minority owned by Hyundai, who currently holds a 33.88% stake in the company, in 2015.

From the mid-1990s, the amount of Kia cars on UK roads has seen a steady increase to the current number of around 800k today.

Given their reliability, value for money and market-leading 7-year, 100k mile warranty, Kia is a marque that is heading for further popularity, greater sales and added respect.

Superb value for money

With an extensive range of models to choose from, Kia cars offer excellent value. From their city car Picanto starting at under £10k, through to their luxury spec SUV Sorento at £30k, Kia cars compete with more established mainstream brands, offering not only strong price-points but with advanced levels of technology and the extended benefits you’d expect from a car of a higher price.

Kia Sportage: The 10th best selling car in the UK

Given the rise in growth of the Korean car brand, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see its best selling model sneak into the top 10 best selling cars of 2018. This great value and practical SUV is ideal for family motoring; not only is it rugged and good looking, but it’s also backed with Kia’s impressive reliability and extensive warranty.

Why are tyres important?

Your tyres are essential for safe driving - they are the only contact point between your vehicle and the road. Tyres have four key functions; they provide grip for braking and acceleration, maintain steering and directional control, support the weight of the vehicle and act as a shock absorber for vibrations from the road.

Can I drive with worn out tyres?

Driving with worn tyres is extremely dangerous because it can result in serious or fatal road accidents. Tyres should always be well maintained and checked regularly, especially when the seasons change.

The minimum tread for a car tyre in the UK is 1.6mm, however it is recommended that tyres are changed when the tread reaches 3mm.

How do I know if my tyres need replacing?

Some common signs that your tyre may need replacing are:

  • There's not enough tread depth

  • You're experiencing a shaky drive

  • You hear squeaks, whines or other strange noises when driving

  • You can see cracks in your tyres

  • You've noticed bulges or blisters

##Is it illegal to drive with bad tyres?

Your tyres are an important safety feature of your car, especially in wet or icy conditions. To keep you and your passengers safe, they must always meet these basic legal requirements:

  • Be compatible with the other tyres on the car.

  • Be in a generally good physical condition - no tears, holes or blisters.

  • Be correctly inflated to the recommended pressure.

  • Have sufficient tread and depth of tread – at least 1.6mm in the centre ¾ of the tread in a continuous band around the tyre.

And remember the more tread your tyres have, the better your grip on the road and the shorter your stopping distances, therefore the safer your car will be to drive.

Why should I book a tyre check?

The number one reason to book a free tyre check with us is safety. This is the most important reason for keeping your tyres in good condition. A bad tyre could spell disaster when travelling at speed, so it's vital that you get them checked regularly to keep yourself, your passengers and other road users safe.

Keeping your tyres in good nick can also save you money, as good, healthy tyres will ensure your car consumes fuel efficiently.

How long do tyres last?

On average, tyres should last between three to five years, or between 30,000 to 60,000 miles. This can vary greatly between different drivers and different tyre types. Tyre experts Michelin recommend that, after five years or more your tyres should be inspected at least once a year by a professional. Then, if you’re still driving on them after ten years they should be replaced, as a precaution.
