Tyre Supply & Fitment
Motorcycle tyres are one of the most critical components of your motorcycle. They are the only point of contact between the road and your bike, which makes them a crucial part of your safety. As such, it is important to ensure that your motorcycle tyres are in top condition to avoid accidents and mishaps.
Taking care of your motorcycle tyres is crucial for your safety and overall riding experience.
One of the most common mistakes made by motorcycle owners is neglecting their tyres. While a tyre may seem fine at first glance, it can be extremely dangerous if it is mismatched or outdated. Even a tyre that has plenty of tread left can be compromised if it has been on the shelf for too long. This is because tyres are made of rubber, and over time, they can dry out, crack or even lose their elasticity, leading to blowouts, loss of traction, or, to put it simply, they are just too old.
Some tyres may have sat on a shelf for years before making it onto your motorcycle, and by this time, you run the risk of things such as the tyre blowing out, losing traction, or falling apart. This can be hard to determine given that tyres don’t have an expiration date, only a manufactured date. So having a trained technician check over your tyres is invaluable.
Mismatched tyres are also something we don’t recommend, especially on a motorcycle where there are only two tyres. From brand to brand and the difference between tread patterns affects motorcycle handling greatly, which can be incredibly important when riding in different road conditions. Therefore, whenever undertaking workshop services, we recommend matching pairs for your front and rear to get the most comfortable and safest experience on or off the road.
Besides the safety and technical side of tyre maintenance, we also offer basic recovery and repair options to keep you on the road. With a motorbike collection service, should you, unfortunately, suffer a puncture or flat tyre, we aim to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

It’s important to regularly check your tyre pressure using a tyre gauge. You can also look for signs of underinflation or overinflation, such as uneven wear, handling issues, or visible bulges in the tyre.
The recommended tyre pressure for your motorcycle can be found in your owner’s manual or on the tyre itself. It’s important to maintain the correct tyre pressure to ensure optimal performance and safety.
You can check the tread depth of your motorcycle tyres by using a tread depth gauge or by visually inspecting the wear bars on the tyre. If the tread depth is below the recommended limit, it’s time to replace your tyres.
While it’s generally not recommended to mix tyre brands, it is possible as long as the tyres are the same type, size, and speed rating. However, it’s important to consult with our experts to ensure the tyres are compatible.
Signs of worn or damaged tyres include uneven wear, cracks, punctures, or bulges in the tyre. If you notice any of these issues, it’s important to replace your tyres as soon as possible.
In some cases, a punctured motorcycle tyre can be repaired. However, it’s important to have the tyre inspected by a professional to determine if it’s safe to repair or if it needs to be replaced.
Before storing your motorcycle for the winter, it’s important to properly inflate your tyres and clean them thoroughly. It’s also a good idea to store your motorcycle in a cool, dry place to prevent moisture buildup and rust.
To maintain optimal tyres performance and longevity, it’s important to regularly inspect your tyres for signs of wear or damage, maintain the correct tyre pressure, and avoid riding on damaged or worn tyre. It’s also recommended to have your tyres professionally balanced and aligned.
