Tyres Eastbourne

Your vehicle’s tyres create a safe bond between your car and the road’s surface, so you must keep them in top condition.

Tyres are one area of your vehicle that you can’t afford to neglect. Poor tread depth increases your stopping distance and increases your risk of an accident. Plus, it could land you in trouble with the police, resulting in hefty fines.

At South Coast garage, we aim to keep you safe, helping you avoid accidents and fines. Our expert technicians provide excellent quality while giving you outstanding value. Our specialists have the experience, skills, and technical know-how to assess your tyres for safety. And will replace them when needed.

With South Coast Garage, your safety is our top priority.

What are the minimum tread levels? And how do I measure this?

The UK’s minimum legal requirement for tyre tread is 1.6mm. While you can use a gauge to measure this, the easiest method is to use a 20p coin.

Put the 20p coin into the tyre area with the least tread. If the coin’s outer rim is visible, check your tyres immediately.

Driving with less than this is extremely dangerous and illegal. Don’t risk accidents or fines.

How do I know what size of tyres I need?

One of the easiest (and best) ways to figure out the tyre size you need is to check the sidewall of your current tyres. But please be aware that some vehicles, such as BMW or Mercedes, can use different-sized tyres on the front and back.

Still unsure? Ask our experts to have a look.

I can't find my locking wheel nut key - what should I do?

Firstly, don’t panic and try to create your own locking wheel nut – this can cause more issues than it’s worth.

Call South Coast Garage and let our specialists help.

How to check your tyre pressure

Before you start, check your vehicle’s recommended tyre pressure – you can find this inside the driver’s door or your car’s fuel cap.

Remove all the dust caps from your vehicle. Put a pressure gauge on a tyre valve; this gives you the current pressure reading.

Compare your actual reading with the recommended pressure levels. If your tyres need inflating, adjust the pressure on the air machine and start inflating your tyres.

Still, need help? Call our team today; we always love to help.

What is wheel alignment and why do I need it?

Your wheels need to be aligned to ensure your tyres touch the road at the correct angle, are pointing straight, and are centred.

Over time, bumps in the road, potholes, speed bumps, and kerbs can cause your wheels to misalign. This results in uneven tyre wear and reduced handling, which puts your safety at risk.

Book your wheel alignment Eastbourne today.

How do I know if my alignment is wrong?

If your alignment is off, you might notice your vehicle pulling in one direction while driving. Or, you might experience reduced handling experience.

Don’t put yourself and others at risk. Call South Coast Garage today and book your wheel alignment Eastbourne check-up.

    My local Garage in Lewes recommended me to go South Coast Garage in Eastbourne as the suspension problem with my Range Rover was a specialist job and they were also believed to be good value for money.

    I couldn't be more pleased with the work, they end up doing a few other bits and pieces and were very competitive on price. Again Excellent work and Excellent Service. If you have a Range... Read More
