Penshaw Car Centre offers a full tyre checking and fitting service for motorists in Chester-le-Street and the North East.
Your tyres are the only part of your vehicle that are in constant contact with the road surface and are therefore one of the most safety critical aspects of your car. Many vehicles on the market today require a specific fitment, which can seriously affect the performance and handling of the vehicle if not done properly.
Minimum Legal Requirements
The law requires the Tread Depth on your tyres to be no less than 1.6mm in a continuous band across three quarters of the tyre. Your tyres must also be compatible with the other tyres fitted on your vehicle and not show signs of significant structural damage.

Tyre Damage, Punctures and Repairs
Damaged, worn or bald tyres can pose a threat to the safety of the driver, passengers and other vehicles on the road. At Penshaw Car Centre our vehicle technicians carry out quality puncture repairs where possible on tyres that can be restored to a roadworthy condition. For tyres with significant structural damage we can supply competitively priced replacements in good condition.
By keeping your tyres properly inflated you can minimise the risk of punctures, wear and tear or other tyre damage. If you are unsure of the correct tyre pressure for the tyres on your vehicle, or are concerned by their general condition, please contact us by phone or email and we will assess them for you.
Misalignment will result in a range of issues for your tyres including premature tyre wear, handling problems and increased fuel consumption. At Penshaw all the tyres that we fit are fitted and correctly balanced as standard with no additional charge.
Keeping your tyres properly inflated can keep them in good condition for as long as possible and also keeps your tyres on the road. Despite this, many road users continue to drive on underinflated tyres or simply not carry out regular checks. Penshaw Car Centre can advise you on the right level of inflation for your tyres to keep them in a safe, roadworthy condition.
