Car Tyres

Quick question- which is the one component of any car without which the car cannot move even an inch?

You probably don’t give much thought to them except when they are flat or low on air pressure. We are here to tell you that it’s paramount that you should take care of your car’s tyres like any other component. It could save you time, money and the continued headache of being stuck with the wrong ones for your car.

Understanding them is also important from the point of view concerning car safety. If you’re driving your car with the wrong tyres at the wrong time and place, it could be potentially dangerous for you and other on the road.

To make sure you do not face any such issues, we, ADD Tyres and Exhausts brought our services to your neighbourhood. We are one of the most trusted workshops for all tyres in Pickering. We stock tyres from all the major tyre manufacturers and also service them as and when required.

A brief history of the modern tyre

The first commercially viable pneumatic tyres were made in the late 19th century by John Dunlop. They were first used in bicycles and later modified to fit automobiles as they became popular.

The humble tyre has come a long way since then. The ones you see today are exceptionally well-made with unique qualities. Tyre manufacturing giants such as Bridgestone, Goodyear, Michelin, and Pirelli spend millions of pounds every year to develop advanced tyres that last much longer and can tackle extreme weather and terrain conditions.

Our range of tyres

Today’s tyres are highly functional items. Car owners in the UK are quite specific about their requirements and tyres are made to keep up with those. 

Affordability is also an issue with many drivers, and you can find a range of cheap car tyres at our workshop in Pickering.

Whatever your requirements may be, you will always find tyres at ADD Tyres and Exhausts to meet them. Our range includes:

  • Summer Tyres

Ideal for driving at temperatures above 7 degrees Celsius, these are the most widely used tyres in the UK. They are known for their durability, smooth handling and value for money.

Summer tyres use relatively harder rubber compound and sport fewer grooves than their winter counterparts. The treads on them are excellent in preventing aquaplaning as well as dispersing excess heat caused by friction at higher speeds.

These tyres are ideal for driving around at all times of the year except harsh winters. They offer low rolling resistance resulting in better fuel efficiency of the car.

  • Winter tyres

Winter tyres are for those times when the temperature falls below the 7 degrees mark. These tyres know how to handle the cold atmosphere as well as any snow that you might encounter on the road.

Winter tyres use a softer rubber compound containing a high percentage of natural rubber. The softness helps them to grip the road better in winter conditions.

The deep and frequent treads distinguish winter tyres from the summer ones. They also have small slits on the tread blocks known as sipes, aimed at improving grip on snow.

  • All-season tyres

These tyres combine the best of summer and winter tyres and have characteristics to suit both the driving conditions. These tyres are wildly popular in places that have a moderate temperature all around the year.

Simply put, all-season tyres perform better than summer tyres in winter, and winter tyres in summer. However, in their respective seasons, summer and winter tyres are better than all-season tyres.

These are the types of tyres that are most popular at ADD Tyres and Exhausts.

However, we also stock other types of tyres such as:

  • Performance tyres
  • 4x4 tyres
  • All-terrain tyres
