FAQ’s

Your tyre size is always written as a sequence of numbers and letters on the tyre sidewall. In the example below, we will use a tyre size 205/55R1691V – which can split into five parts:

  • Width (205) : The width of your tyre in millimeters.
  • Profile (55) : The size between wheel rim and the top of the tyre, measured as a percentage of the tyre width – 205 mm x 55% = 113 mm (approx). This means your tyre sidewall is 113 mm high.
  • Rim size (R16) : The diameter of the rim in inches.
  • Load index (91) : The load index of the type which refers to a value in kilograms. An index value of 91 corresponds to 615 kg, which means each tyre can hold 615 kg safely.
  • Speed index (v) : The speed index of the tyre, which refers to the maximum speed the tyre can be safely driven at. A ‘V’ rated tyre is rated to a minimum speed of 240 kph.

It typically takes about one hour to fit four tyres.

Generally, if there is enough room on each side to open the doors and enter the vehicle, we will be able to complete the tyre fitting.

We remove them for recycling. Most of the tyres are shredded into a range of rubber granules, which can be used in playground surfaces, floor insulation, tile adhesives, road base, and even in the manufacture of new tyres.
