When was the last time you checked your tyre tread?
When was the last time you checked your tyre tread? For most of us the first time we know we need new tyres is when we are told by the mechanic when we are having the car serviced? Do we really, or is it a slow day at the mechanics? While most tyre stores are reasonably trustworthy as a consumer, how do you really know when to replace our tyres?
Mobile Tyre Shop has taken the guesswork out of inspecting tyres. Using a hand held laser scanner Mobile Tyre Shop can immediately provide an accurate tread depth reading and can reveal badly worn or unevenly worn tyres symptomatic of problems such as wheel misalignment or worn suspension. Colour coded 3D scans enable tyre replacement at the optimal time to maximise tyre safety. These reports can be sent directly to the customer’s mobile phone or connected device.
The legal minimum tread depth in Australia is 1.6mm however most tyre manufacturers recommend to replace tyres when they reach 3.0mm. Why 3.0mm ? The cynic in you says because tyre dealers can sell more tyres the truth lies in safety. Once a tyre reaches 3.0mm the braking performance of a tyre reduces rapidly.
Travelling at 80kph in the wet it will take the following distances to stop:
The way you change your tyres has also changed
Not only can Mobile Tyre Shop provide you with an accurate report on your tyre safety though once the need for new tyres has been diagnosed we come to you and replace your tyres at your home or work 7 days.
Doesn’t a mobile service cost more?
No. As the rent and overheads of running a bricks and mortar tyre store increases Mobile Tyre Shop has worked closely on its logistics model that enables us to not have to hold stock. All stock is delivered same day from our trusted suppliers. This also enables us not to sell the customer whatever limited stock we have on the shelf but to provide the customer with the best tyre for the way they drive their car and at their preferred price point. Most often tyres can be replaced on the same day.
