Each label includes a classification from the best performance (green Category ‘A’) to the worst performance (red category ‘G’). The label has three different pieces of information on it which are...Read More
We all know that the UK long range and even short range weather forecasts can be unpredictable and that cold weather can creep up on us without warning! Some winters being very harsh with below freezing temperatures and others mild without a spec of snow!
Winter weather can and often does catch us unawares with ice, snow and anything in between. The main thing to be aware of is that winter weather can bring with it treacherous and hazardous driving conditions with an increased likelihood of road accidents. Also...Read More
Most people who buy a budget tyre base their choice solely on the price and not much thought goes into it apart from that. Why spend more on a premium tyre when you can buy a budget tyre for a fraction of the price? What is the cheapest tyre you can get for your car?
Choosing the right tyre....
Mid-range tyres offer you the option of purchasing a tyre with more safety features, better performance and greater durable than budget tyres. All with a price tag that is lower than premium tyres.
Mid-range tyres are often made by the same manufacturers as premium brands, go through more safety testing than budget brands and have better technology in their development. This gives you ...
Tests show that if the tread drops below 3mm, this can make the tyres performance drop and is considered unsafe in the wet and snow. The minimum legal requirement of the tread is at least 1.6mm throughout a continuous band in the centre 3/4 of the tyre.
It is essential for you to ensure you choose a suitable tyre for your car as tyres affect the safety, driving performance and stopping distance. You should think about ....Read More
All caravan tyres need replacing at some point. They are the only part of a caravan that makes contact with the road surface, thats why it is important to change them when they are properly maintained.

Fantastic service. Had a puncture and my tyre needed replacing phoned the company at 3.30pm and Jon came to replace tyre at road side by 6pm. He did an excellent job. Very professional and friendly. Really good price. Highly recommend. Thanks so much!!!ShaunaG-2 - 5 ★ Yell

Can't recommend these guys enough! Wrecked my tyre on a curb and was stranded in work. Submitted form on their website and had a call back within 10 minutes saying they would get to me in a few hours. Arrived earlier than promised and installed replacement tyre in about 15-20 minutes. Super easy and professional. Thanks for saving me!TobyP-25 - 5 ★ Yell

Woke up to a flat tyre, thought I could get the spare on and get it to a garage but turns out I cant and the tyre wont budge. Quick Google and there are Driveway tyres. I'm already thinking i'm going to have to wait all day, and it's going to cost more than the garage........ how wrong was I:
I call and speak to John, who said he's got a job on but he'll buzz me back in half hour.
-10 minutes later his colleague Mike is on the phone, asking what tyre I need and what my address is.
-1 hour later, Mike is on my driveway jacking my car up, armed with a new tyre just in case its needed.
-40 mins later, my tyre has been repaired with no new tyre needed. £25 charge. All whilst having a laugh about the other cars on my driveway.
£25 and 2 hours of time and the car is as good as new. Now would that have happened if I went to a garage? NO! I'd be sat waiting my turn, only to be told the tyre is not repairable and I need a new tyre at a cost (and they probably can't get it today!)
And of course, good service is not good service if it just happens once....... so when the Mrs needed a tyre after a blowout; we call Mike and see if he can help. Yet again, within the hour he's on the drive jacking up the car with a spare tyre ready to go. We were expecting to pay over the odds given the quick & convenient service, but the tyre worked out cheaper than going to the usual garage!
Fast working, honest, funny, great at keeping you informed of ETA's AND cost competitive: I would not fail to recommend John & Mike to anybody. They are the spirit of small Welsh business and should be your go to for tyres and tyre repairs!
All the best with the business guys, Kieran and Bianca!
