Van and light commercial vehicles tyres at Horndean Tyres

Tyres for vans and light commercial vehicles (LCVs) up to 3.5 tonnes in weight naturally work hard for a living. Every day, they cover more miles and carry more weight than a similar car tyre. Many operate in tougher environments, like stop-start deliveries and on construction sites.

Horndean Tyres are proud to provide tailored tyre recommendations to all operators of vans and light commercial vehicles. We can recommend and fit the best tyres that will keep your vehicles working hard in your business, whilst providing the lowest operating cost. We understand that as a van driver, a fleet manager, or a business owner, you have a duty of care that your tyres are always roadworthy and legal.

You can trust Horndean Tyres to keep your business working.

  • All Terrain tyres for better off-road grip with a chunkier tread pattern (50% 50%)

Wheel alignment service at Horndean Tyres

There are several tell-tale signs you will notice if your car needs wheel alignment:

  • it pulls to one side when driving
  • uneven tyre wear across the tread pattern
  • a noisy rubbing sound when you turn

You may even notice that your fuel consumption has increased.

If you experience any of these issues, contact Horndean Tyres to correct your misaligned wheels using our state-of-the-art laser calibrated equipment:

Front wheel alignment

Your steering wheels are the most likely to become misaligned, as they steer the car and are most likely to hit potholes and nudge against kerbs.

Four-wheel alignment

With this service our highly trained technicians will perform a more in-depth assessment that includes the rear wheels.

Our highly trained technicians will talk through the requirements of your car and then correct the wheel alignment in accordance with the manufacturers detailed specifications whatever the make of car.

Having the correct wheel alignment will improve vehicle handling and steering whilst also reducing braking distances. Aside from optimising the safety of your car, it will also lower your fuel consumption and extend the life of your tyres.

Puncture repair service at Horndean Tyres

The first indication of tyre punctures these days is often a warning light on the dashboard of your car. The tyre technicians at Horndean Tyres will skilfully check and assess if your puncture can be repaired in accordance with British Standard AU 159. This ensures the puncture is in a location that can be safely repaired and there is no other structural damage. This ensures our puncture repairs are fully legal and safe. They also provide a long-term fix that will last the lifetime of the tyre.

Run flat tyres

The sidewalls on run flat tyres are reinforced so they can be driven on for a short time after getting a puncture. Tyre manufacturers specify that this design makes it impossible for tyre technicians to detect if the tyre structure has been compromised. This means the only safe option is to replace them if they get a puncture.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) services

Since 2012, TPMS has been a legal requirement for all new passenger vehicles sold in the UK. This tyre monitoring technology has undoubtedly been one of the biggest innovations in tyre safety.

The TPMS sensors are designed to last for many years but when the internal battery runs out a replacement is needed. Occasionally, sensors can also become faulty or fail as a result of damage or corrosion. Horndean Tyres can fit replacement OEM and aftermarket TPMS sensors to your wheels when this happens. Our tyre technicians are fully trained to program the new sensors to communicate with the vehicle’s ECU using our specialist diagnostic equipment.

TPMS checks are now part of your cars annual MOT test. Your car can receive an instant MOT fail if the TPMS dashboard light stays on – indicating a fault or problem with the TPMS system.

Tyre tread depth and UK Law

It’s surprisingly easy to check if your tyre tread depth complies with UK law.

Horndean Tyres recommend the TyreSafe 20p coin test. Just insert a 20p coin into the tread grooves of your tyres and providing the outer edge remains hidden the tyre is above the legal tread limit.

Your tyres are also manufactured with tread wear indicators. These are small bars that span the base of the tread grooves. Once the surface of these small bars is level with the tread you’re down to the legal minimum. The legal limit for the minimum tread depth is 1.6 millimetres around the circumference and across the central ¾ of the tyre.

You should also check for other defects, such as lumps, bumps and bulges that indicate the tyre has structural damage. While any cuts or tears bigger than 25mm, and any exposed tyre ply or cord, means you should also consider replacing your tyres.

If you’re unsure or need help – pop in to a Horndean Tyres retail drive-in centre and let our tyre technicians check them for you.
