Air Con Regas
On the rare occasions in which we have a heatwave, the last thing you want to be doing is going out to your hot car and your air con blowing nothing but warm wind in your face! This leads to an uncomfortable, sweaty journey and it’s not nice for others who may be in your vehicle.
At the Tyre Bay, we offer an air con regas/recharge service where we can help keep you cool all year round. Not only that but failing to regas regularly can lead to faults within your air conditions system which can be expensive to replace depending on your vehicle.
Alloy Wheel Welding
If you’ve ever gone up a curb at speed or through a pothole, you know how susceptible alloy wheels can be to developing cracks. Cracks in alloys are caused by impact and can range in sizes but they can be removed.
Most people assume it’s time to start shopping for a replacement but here at the Tyre Bay we can fix the issue by welding a neat line of aluminium on each side of the effected alloy. This not only covers the crack but fixes the issue, restoring durability back to your wheels.
Alloy Wheel Straightening
As with a cracked alloy, we can straighten a bent one. Similar to cracking, alloy wheels can bend, buckle or appear flat upon heavy impact and what’s worse is this can fail and MOT test if spotted.
Instead of rushing out to purchase a new set or replacement, we can take a look and let you know on the spot whether we can fix this like new.
Speed Limit Removal
A speed limiter is a governor used to limit the top speed of a vehicle. A lot of company/hire vans have speed limiters on them. If you have an ex royal mail, British gas, aa/rac or hire van with a limiter on we can remove this.
Whatever way your vehicle is limited we can take it off for you.
Locking Wheel Nut Removal
Locking wheel nuts are a cost effective way of protecting your alloy wheels from theft. A standard wheel nut can be removed with minimum effort using an ordinary wrench which means your wheels could easily be stolen. The locking wheel nut needs a special key to unlock it but when this is lost or damaged a specialist tool is needed to remove it. Here at the tyre bay we can remove most locking nuts from all makes of car.
