Toyota Tyres

Your Tyres are arguably the most important bit of equipment on your car. Keeping you, your car and your passengers gripped to the surface of the road. So it's important to take care and ensure your tyres are always in a safe and legal state.

How To Tell If Your Tyres Need Changing


Fitting the right tyres is all well and good but it is not the full picture.

Safety is paramount when you are driving your Toyota. Ensuring that your tyres are in the best condition, Toyota provides you with all the tyre-fitting services that you will ever need including a free puncture repair service to all Toyota owners.

By law, your tyres need to have at least 1.6mm tread across the middle 3/4s, all the way around. The thorough design of the tread pattern on a tyre helps separate water on the road to reduce friction and causing them to slide.

However, over time tyres will lose this ability to remove water from a road surface and eventually lose grip and control.

Tyre Safety Measures

It is vital to check that each tyre is the same make and has the same tread pattern. This ensures the vehicle is well balanced on all sides. 

If your steering wheel vibrates when you are driving between 40-50mph, there is an issue with your tyres. One or more either need balancing or replaced completely.

If your steering is slowly deviating in one direction, this can mean there is an issue with your tracking. Alternatively, this can also mean the tyre pressures are uneven or the tread do not match each other on your front tyres.

It is important to look around your tyres regularly for any signs of cracks, splits and punctures, as they will need to be replaced and prevents any accidents.

Tyre FAQ's

  • How Long Do Tyres Last?

    To help make your tyres last longer, it can be a good idea to rotate them regularly to make sure that wear is even. Usually, front tyres wear faster than rear tyres so rotating them can be a way to help increase their lifespan.

  • What Makes Your Tyres Illegal?

    When overloaded tyres are more of a risk of a blowout, which increases the risk of having an accident. Most tyres are now marked with a tyre load index, and it is important to make sure you don’t exceed this maximum load limit. In addition, using the wrong size tyres on your car can invalidate your insurance and cause your car to fail the MOT test.

  • How Many Miles Do Tyres Last?

    How far a tyre travels in a full revolution depends on the outside diameter of the tyre, which affects how each of these separate parts work. 

  • What Size Tyres Do I Need

    Speedometers, traction control, torque and gear settings are all engineered in alignment with the size of the tyres. Fitting the wrong tyres can alter the full revolution of a tyre, which, among other issues, can cause the speedometer to display incorrect readings. Thankfully, finding the right tyres for your car is straightforward at Stoneacre. All you need to do is enter your vehicle registration or tyre measurements from the markings on the sidewall of your current tyres, and we’ll recommend a set of tyres based on the Toyota model.

  • How To Put Air In Tyres

    Your car manual will indicate the recommended tyre pressure. Under or over-inflated tyres can affect the way your car steers, handles and brakes, as well as increasing wear and the chances of you having a blowout. Free air stations can be found at many petrol or service stations.
