BATTERIES

North Devon Tyres are sure to stock the car battery you require, at a price you can afford. Visit one of our local branches and ask us to give you a competitive price for your car or vehicles battery. The battery is the source of all electricity in your car. It powers the starter and ignition; it supplies extra power when needed and ensures a smooth flow of electrical energy.

Common signs that your car battery may be faulty include:

  • The engine is slow to turn over after ignition

  • Your headlights are dim

  • The engine will not turn over and you can hear a rapid clicking noise

BRAKES

Your brakes are the most important safety features on your car, which are often taken for granted. With this in mind, it's important to ensure that you are checking your brakes on a regular basis.  At North Devon tyres, we can deal with any ABS issues on your vehicle, minor or major, and best of all we can cater for all brands of cars.

EXHAUSTS

At North Devon tyres we carry a massive range of car exhausts to fit most popular makes and models - all at unbeatable prices.

The main indicator you may notice to indicate a problem with your exhaust is the noise it makes. As the noise from an exhaust can say a lot about an exhausts general condition, it is likely only one or two parts of an exhaust system would need replacing at one time. Whether it is individual parts or a full system, we provide an unbeatable service tailored to what you require.

 

If you are experiencing any unusual symptoms or you have any other concerns with your exhaust please call into one of our local branches and speak to one of our fully trained exhaust specialists.

MOT'S

NITROGEN TYRE INFLATION

Why use nitrogen instead of compressed air?

Filling your tyres with nitrogen instead of compressed air means that your tyre pressure will remain at the appropriate level for longer.

This is because nitrogen passes through the tyre walls slower than oxygen does.

 

What tyresafe.org say about nitrogen tyre inflation:

  • Nitrogen, a colourless, odourless, tasteless and non toxic gas that forms about 78% of the earth’s atmosphere delivers important benefits when used in tyres:

  • slows the rate of pressure loss

  • keeps tyre pressures more constant

  • increases tyre life

  • reduces the tyre’s running temperature Nitrogen, due to its chemical structure its molecules are larger than oxygen

  • means that it is much slower to leak out of a tyre, therefore, pressure is held more constant.

 

Nitrogen also provides a more stable pressure range in relation to tyre temperature and a tyre’s operating temperature plays a part in how rapidly it wears. It is for this reason that nitrogen is used in motorsport, notably Formula 1, as tyre temperatures often get close to 100 degrees C and require consistent pressure. All in all, the use of nitrogen can mean up to a 25% increase in tyre life and a 5% reduction in fuel consumption together with a reduction in CO2 emissions, a vitally important consideration in today’s environmental debate.

REGROOVING

Commercial Tyres

Commercial Tyres can be regrooved to extend tyre life. The regrooving operation consists of cutting into the tread of a tyre a tread pattern deeper than the original, so as to prolong the tyre’s useful life.

  • Regrooving significantly extends the potential grip of a tyre in the wet.

  • It is carried out when there is still 3 to 4 mm of tread depth.

  • Regrooving gives new sharp edges and a tread depth of about 6 to 8 mm, or a tread depth of about the same as that of a half-worn tyre.

  • Carried out in accordance with our recommendations it has no adverse effect on the product regarding the strength of the crown block or casing.

  • By regrooving your tyres, you also achieve additional mileage.

SUSPENSION & SHOCKS

Suspension damage can make your vehicle dangerous to drive on the road due to handling issues and will also be an MOT failure if not fixed.

Problems may not be entirely be down to physical damage but might be as a result of wear from everyday use. This can lead to a range of issues.

 

At North Devon Tyres we can check your suspension and find a solution to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy and legal. Checking all the vital suspension components including the shock absorbers and springs will be carried out by our trained technicians.

 

Call us today to discuss your vehicles requirements or for us to simply carry out a comprehensive check to ensure everything is as it should be.

WHEEL ALIGNMENT

To ensure a car drives safely, efficiently and behaves as the vehicle manufacturer intended, it’s important that its wheels are correctly aligned.

Why Wheel Alignment Matters

 

There are many reasons why keeping wheels correctly aligned is important.

 

Safer driving – On cars where the geometry is out of alignment, they can be less stable when having to take emergency or evasive action. A pre-alignment check of tyre condition, pressures and a suspension system inspection is a key part of the alignment procedure. This allows potentially worn parts and defective tyres to be spotted before they cause a more costly problem.

 

Reduced tyre wear – Misalignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear and properly aligned wheels can add thousands of miles to the life of your tyres.

 

Improved fuel consumption – Four wheel alignment sets the wheels straight and parallel with each other, which along with correct tyre pressures, reduces the tyre’s rolling resistance. Your fuel consumption will improve once any unnecessary drag on the tyres (rolling resistance) caused by misalignment is eliminated.

 

Saves money and the environment – By preventing premature tyre wear, early tyre disposal and improving fuel economy, correct alignment not only reduces the cost of motoring, but also helps the environment too.

Improved handling – Many handling problems can be corrected by four wheel alignment, giving you the driver a better, safer and a more enjoyable drive.

 

Signs of Misalignment

It’s not always easy to detect if a car’s wheels are misaligned, especially as this can occur gradually over a prolonged period of time. However, some of the key signs that the car’s wheels are not correctly aligned are as follows:

Uneven tyre wear on the fronts or the rears – tyres suffering from misalignment often show signs of excessive wear on either the inside or outside edges. It is not always easy to visibly see the tyre wear. However, by carefully running your hands over the tyre it is possible to detect if the rubber has worn unevenly or excessively. This should be done with extreme caution as fine wires from the tyre carcass may protrude from the rubber.

 

The car pulls to one side – When driving a misaligned car along a straight flat road, you may find that you need to compensate through the steering wheel to keep the car driving straight as the car drifts to one side, especially under braking.

 

A crooked steering wheel – Even when the car is driving straight ahead the steering wheel is not straight or level.
