Here at SixFields Northampton we are always looking to offer the best services at an affordable cost, that is why for the next two weeks (11/02/2019 – 25/02/2019) we will be offering a FREE MOT with every 4 new tyres purchased.
Why are tyres important?
Think about it, tyres are the only thing in your vehicle that actually touch the floor. This means that they are in control of your steering, breaking, acceleration and absorbing all the bumps that the road may throw at you.
When you look at it this way, it becomes obvious that having good quality tyres is essential to your driving experience. There are many different types of tyres available on the market and not all of them provide the same levels of performance. Certain tyres provide much better traction in wet weather or snow, while others provide smoother rolling at high speeds for better fuel consumption and reduced noise.
Finding the right tyres
It is important that you pick tyres that are well suited for the conditions that you most regularly drive in. Many people tend to choose budget tyres for the cost saving factor, however this can be false economy, as cheap tyres tend to go bald quicker, can increase fuel consumption and may not grip the road as well.
Not all tyres are created equal, so it pays to make sure that the tyres you are looking to buy match your requirements. If you do a lot of motorway driving then you will want tyres that handle much better at higher speeds, while countryside drivers may look for tyres that can easily handle a range of terrain. You are also able to purchase tyres made from a tougher compound making them much longer lasting and with better grip than budget tyres.
What is the difference between an MOT and Service?
The MOT follows strict DVSA criteria and includes inspections of several key areas of the car including tyres, lights, brakes and emissions to name but a few.
Your Service will vary based on the type of service you chose. An interim service includes an inspection of vehicle essentials plus an oil and filter change and is ideal for drivers with a high mileage. Our full service includes an extended list of under-the-bonnet checks, a full comprehensive brake check and replacement air filters. We recommend this as an annual service plan for all car owners who are keen to maintain the condition of their vehicle.
It can seem like the end of the world when your car breaks down. Without a thorough knowledge of auto-repair, you may want a better idea as to where to turn to get your car fixed. Use the tips you read to either handle the problem yourself or find a competent mechanic to handle the problem for you.
