Tyre Safety

Just Tyres are one of the only companies in the UK to concentrate exclusively on selling car tyres.

We believe that once tyres are on the car they should be properly looked after in the interests of safety and economy.

There's a lot riding on your tyres!

Our staff will take care of fitting your tyres by following the simple rules explained below.


Removal and Fitting of Tyres

removal and fitting of tyres
These operations must only be entrusted to a tyre specialist like Just Tyres, which has the necessary equipment and expertise.
All tyre removal and fitting operations will be carried out on modern machinery to ensure accurate fitting and the protection of your wheels. All wheels will be examined before a new tyre is fitted.

Frequently wheels will need cleaning with a wire brush on the inside edge to remove corrosion before a new tyre is fitted. This is to ensure that there is no loss of air when the unit is inflated. To make sure that the tyre is correctly seated on the wheel it will be over inflated and then the pressure reduced down to the manufactures recommended level.

When fitting a new tyre, we use a special soap solution to ensure no damage occurs to the tyre or wheel during the fitting process. We also always hand-tighten and torque wheel nuts to avoid damage to the nut or the thread and to make sure that overtightening doesn't cause you problems in removing wheels in an emergency.

Inflation Pressures

Tyres will be inflated to the normal pressures recommended by the car manufacturer. Please let us know if you require maximum load pressures instead. You can always ask the Just Tyres staff for correct pressures.

Wheel Balancing

We strongly recommend that wheels should be balanced after tyres are fitted or replaced to avoid vibration or steering shimmy. It is essential that the wheel size is an approved fitment for the tyre and the wheel concerned.

All wheels will be treated with care when balance weights are applied. In the case of alloy rims, we may recommend "stick-on" weights rather than the "clip-on" type to avoid scratching the wheel surface. Fitting and balancing tyres to alloy rims generally takes longer and a slightly higher service charge for balancing therefore applies.

Valves

To avoid loss of air we fit new valves when replacing tubeless tyres. When checking or adjusting inflation pressure we always ensure that the valve is not leaking.

A valve cap, preferably of the sealing type should be fitted.

Technical Expertise

The replacement of tyres is a safety critical operation and our staff have been comprehensively trained in all aspects of tyre knowledge. Please ask their advice when you require it.
