To perfect tyre fitting by the specialist
Self do, self have! This what many a hobby DIY enthusiast says before locking himself in the hobby cellar with sufficient wood and his tools. And of course, it is a good thing if you don’t have to call a tradesman for every manual operation that is needed at home. However, particularly as far as safety is concerned, it’s best left to the professionals. The money that we actually want to save with our self-initiative can otherwise quickly lead to horrendous follow-on costs and even worse. Tyre fitting and replacement are activities for which you should always turn to an expert. A tyre which has been incorrectly fitted can be extremely dangerous with the top speed of modern vehicles, which can often be up to 200 km/h.
Small mistakes, major consequences
Even if you don’t assume the worst: A tyre that is incorrectly fitted interferes with the sensitive running gear, resulting in uneven running, which does not only have a negative effect on driving comfort but also increases petrol consumption and tyre wear. Perfect concentricity, precise tracking and the correct inflation pressure must be observed in all cases. KURZ Karkassenhandel has modern fitting and balancing machines for professional; tyre fitting at both sites in Landau and Wendlingen. And of course trained personnel who know immediately if the tyre to be fitted is fit for purpose.
Safety by means of an exact tyre check
Professional fitting also includes a conscientious tyre check: Tread depth and tyre age are checked when this takes place, and the tyre is also examined for bulges, cracks and other damage. Tyres which have signs of use such as this should not continue to be used under any circumstances because they are a safety risk to the driver and also all other road users. Even small imbalances can be a major impairment. The balancing of the tyres contributes significantly to a safe and comfortable vehicle handling.
We do not only fit and balance car tyres, but also HGV and light commercial vehicle tyres – with competence and precision. For more safety on our roads.
