Tyres and Alignment
Tyres are the only part of your car touching the road and a key aspect of road safety. They are critical for grip , acceleration , cornering and braking.
At Cavendish Motors we recommend quality tyres and offer a full range to suit all needs and driving requirements.
We also understand that selecting the right tyre can be confusing so our team are always happy to listen and understand your needs. knowing your needs allows us to guide you through the process and help you select the best solution from a budget tyre to a premium brands we have a solution to suit every pocket.
The legal minimum tread depth for a car tyre is just 1.6 mm and you can check this by looking at the tyre wear indicator in the tread. In the wet the stopping distance will be greatly reduced once the tread depth falls below 3 mm so we would recommend you have your tyres changed before they reach the legal limit to ensure safety and comfort.
Cavendish Motor Company offer free tyre safety checks and will check for uneven wear and any damage, if necessary we will also arrange a check of suspension or wheel alignment and advise you accordingly.
We stock a range of quality mid range tyres for immediate fitment and can often fit tyres while you wait. All other brands including Michellin, Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, Pirelli, Dunlop and more are available usually same day.

If you get a flat tyre or puncture change it for your spare immediately without driving on it. We can often repair tyres safely and advise if the tyre is damaged and needs replacement.
TPMS or Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems are fitted to many cars and a warning light is often the first thing a customer will notice they have a problem. If you can inflate the tyre and then we will reset the warning light or diagnose any potential faults. We can also arrange replacement of these specialist valves or transponders if they are damaged saving you an expensive return to the main dealer.
Run Flat Tyres often look fine even if they have damage or a puncture so remember to get them professionally checked if your car has a warning light on the dash to keep you and your family safe.
