What is the Express Visual Check? 

The Express Visual Check is a 34 point visual check of all the wear and tear items on a customer's car. The check will be carried out when your vehicle comes into a Pulman workshop no matter the age and condition of the vehicle.  The check is designed to provide you with complete peace of mind and allows us to highlight potential wear and tear issues...

What are winter tyres and are they worth it? 

The main difference between winter tyres and regular tyres is tread depth. On a winter tyre it starts at between 8 and 9 mm, as opposed to 7 and 8mm on a regular tyre.

The grooves within a winter tyre are wider and deeper as well, forming a larger channel for snow and water to travel through - this helps maintain grip on the road. 

Finally, the rubber used to make winter tyres contains a larger percentage of natural rubber and silica in the compound. This doesnt harden as much as synthetic rubber in cold weather, which also improves the tyre's grip. 

How should I store my winter tyres? 

Storage should be top of your list on things to think about, as its an important part of maintaining the lifespan of the tyre. They should be stored on the rims and stacking should be avoided. Additionally, they should be kept in a dark, dry environment? Sounds like a lot to consider right? Not necessarily! Here at Pulman Hotel4Tyres we store your tyres when you're not using them, and fit them for you when the season changes! 

In short, we will...

Supply, store, and fit winter tyres - Supply you with winter tyres and store them until you are ready to have them fitted (free of charge) 

Store and re-fit summer tyres - When the winter tyres are fitted, staff also fully check and store your summer tyres. After the winter period, they then re-fir your summer tyres 

Store used winter tyres - When the summer tyres are re-fitted, as part of the package, Hotel4Tyres will check and store your used tyres
