Tyre Replacement Procedure
- Locking off of the wheel nuts
- The vehicle is then jacked into position using manufacturers recommended jacking points.
- Once the car is jacked, we remove the nuts completely with our power torque wrenches. Then take the wheel off the vehicle.
- We remove all the existing balance weight from the wheel before placing it onto our state of the art tyre removal/fitting machine.
- Using this automated machine, we remove the tyre from the wheel ensuring no damage is done to the rim in the process
- Ensure the wheel inner rim is clean
- Replacement of the old valve with a correctly fitted new valve.
- Mounting of the new tyre onto the wheel using the same machine we used to remove the old tyre.
- The wheel is then inflated to the correct manufacturers recommended pressure for the tyre and vehicle in question
- Wheel is removed from the tyre-fitting machine and mounted into place on the computerised wheel-balancing machine.
- This computerised balancer then takes a series of measurements from the wheel as the wheel is spun at high speed, thus allowing the computer to sense discrepancies within the balance of the tyre.
- Once a discrepancy is found within the balance of the wheel, the computerised balancer locates this and the correct weight is added onto the rim of the wheel to balance the wheel out.
- The wheel is then remounted onto the hub, then using existing wheel nuts, the wheel is tightened onto the car using air powered torque wrench.
- The vehicle is lowered off the jack and all wheel nuts are checked for correct torque.Once all 14 of these stages are successfully accomplished, our service to you is complete.
