Have you noticed a change in your vehicle’s steering control or braking? If so, it might be time for new tyres to be fitted.
Your tyres form the bond between your vehicle and the road and can be the difference between arriving safely at your destination and an avoidable accident.
D&D Autos offer a comprehensive tyre replacement service, keeping our clients safely on the road for over 35 years. We offer a quick and premium service our clients have come to rely on. Please speak to one of our team today to arrange your tyre check.
What are the minimum tread requirements? And how do I measure this?
The UK’s legal requirement for tyre tread is 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of your tyre.
Gauge devices are used to measure the exact tread remaining on your tyre. But if you don’t have access to one of these and are concerned about your tyre tread, you can check your tread with a 20p.
Simply place a 20p into the lowest tread depth of your tyre. If you can no longer see the outer rim, your tyre should be above the minimum. If you can see the edge, your tread is below 3mm and should be checked as soon as possible.
Being able to see the 20p rim would mean you are driving on illegal tyres. And please remember that unless you are prepared to test all the treads on all your tyres, the test would not be reliable, and your tyres could still run the risk of an accident and fines.
Call D&D Autos today and arrange your professional tyre assessment.
I can't find my locking wheel nut key – what should I do?
If you are having trouble locating your locking wheel nut key, don’t panic. Simply contact our team at D&D Autos and let us help.
We recommend that clients never try to create a DIY locking wheel nut key. It usually causes more damage and an unnecessary repair bill. Give us a call today and let our team help.
How to check your tyre pressure?
The correct tyre pressures will be shown on the inside of the driver’s door or the inside of your fuel cap.
The next step is to check your current tyre pressure. Firstly, remove the dust cap from the tyre valve and place the pressure gauge onto the value. Then gently pressing down with the gauge on the valve stem will give you a reading.
If you need to reinflate your tyres, set the machine to the stated recommended pressure and keep the gauge on the value, the machine will do the rest.
If you are unsure or require help with this, give us a call, and we’ll be happy to help.
I’ve damaged my wheel. Can you fix it?
Our Ashford garage is fully equipped with specialist equipment, so we will do our best to get it back to normal if the wheel is fixable.
Great Service as always, friendly and informative staff and a warm waiting area for a coffee whilst waiting. Would highly recommend.
D&D Autos were very accommodating with an urgent MOT issue. I had previously been to Halfords for an MOT which failed and they were unhelpful in trying to resolve the issue. D&D was recommended by a friend and they kindly agreed to investigate on an urgent basis. They reset the lambda sensor, MOTd the vehicle - job done. The staff were courteous and kept me informed of progress. Would... Read More
Great staff. Always reliable and do their best to help you out when you forgot your MOT was due
Just to reinforce all the positives on here. I find them always professional, personable, interested and as a bonus, always able to fix at a fair cost any issue my old car throws up. Please do not use them as some day, we will struggle to get booked in. Thanks as always.
D and D autos are always polite, helpful and professional. Both myself and my wife have been using D and D for about 10 years and have never had any negative issues.
Friendly and very professional. Would highly recommend
Great garage, with knowledgeable staff.
So popular that it can take four weeks to get a repair slot, but worth the wait (if the fault is not serious)
Will definately use again.
Staff friendly and very helpful. Don't rip u off. Go above and beyond. Have bought several vehicles here and trust them 100%. 5 star service. Would highly recommend.
Originally had service and MOT at the end of April this year. Today I noticed there was a problem with my air filter box and rang to raise my concern. Invited over same day for someone to have a look at the problem. Full inspection carried out, problem identified, options discussed and work carried out. Couple of hours later picked my car up with nothing to pay! Incredible service and very... Read More
Honest and trustworthy. Take time to explain everything and never make me feel inferior. All work has always been carried out to high standard and at good value.
Excellent service, as ever. They have looked after my cars for years. Have never let me down. Always polite,friendly, and efficient. Never patronising. Very good in a crisis!
Car had poor performance. D&D was able to very quickly locate fault and repair. They were very supportive and kept us informed of progress and cost along the way. Excellent service from D&D.
Highly recommend to others.
All ways great service from start to finish and friendly staff happy and super helpful. Steve on reception is a real star
Very impressed. New engine after timing chain failed, had other bits done at same time. It took quite a long time but was a huge job and I was kept up to date with progress calls. No issues at all after collection, absolutely perfect. Not cheap but you get what you pay for and I wanted a top job. Would recommend.
From the booking of the MOT to the final bill, the service, not just for my car, but for me as a customer, was excellent. I felt valued as a customer. The facilities for waiting were very comfortable. The polite and amicable nature of the staff, so refreshing. Thanks guys.
Having moved into the area recently I was recommended to D & D by a neighbour. I have used them twice now and am hugely impressed by their excellent customer service and helpful staff. Their free local drop off/pick up service is also a great touch especially for one-car families like ours and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
