Replacements and repairs for your

Once your tyres become worn or uneven, they can become a risk to you and other drivers on the road. Here at SW Automotive in Biggin Hill, we offer a range of tyre repairs as well as free tyre checks, to ensure legal tyre depth and clarify that tyre tread is a minimum of 1.6mm. You can then have peace of mind that your tyres are legal and roadworthy. If this turns out not to be the case, we can carry out quick and easy repairs or replacement fitting to get you back on the road. For anything tyre-related, our experts are well equipped to carry out any checks, replacements, or repairs.

How can you tell

There are numerous checks you can carry out to ensure your tyres are completely legal. Failing this test could result in a fine of £2,500 per tyre.

  • With the legal tread depth being 1.6mm, most tyres have an indicator so that you can easily tell once they are below this level.
  • Another easy way of checking your tyre tread is with the 20p test. If you insert a 20p coin into the tread grooves of the tyre and the outer band is covered, your tyre is within legal limits. If any part of your tyre fails this test, a replacement will be needed.
  • You should also keep an eye out for wear marks, lumps, or cracked tyres which could impact your ability to drive the vehicle safely.

Our technicians can carry out a free tyre check for your vehicle, just simply bring it to our Biggin Hill garage and we will look over each tyre.
Simply call 01959 576 827 or email info@swautomotive.co.uk to book this in with us.

Wheel realignment

Once your new tyres have been fitted, wheel realignment is highly recommended to safely ensure your car is even on each wheel and prevent uneven tyre wear. This will also improve your driving experience as you can be sure your vehicle isn’t leaning to one side. With the technology and equipment we have invested in at our Biggin Hill garage, we can carry out accurate wheel alignment for your vehicle to ensure you are safe once your new tyres have been fitted.

Tyre repairs

In some circumstances, a complete tyre replacement is not necessary, and our experts will be able to carry out a repair. A general rule to follow if you require a puncture repair is to look at where the damage has occurred. Anything within the central ¾ of the tyre will be suitable. However, if the sidewall has been compromised a replacement will be needed. Any debris such as nails and screws stuck within the tyre are a straightforward repair for our team, however we will always recommend the safest course of action to ensure you are not at risk on the road.
