TYRE SERVICE AT SHELBOURNE MOTORS

At Shelbourne Motors, we pride ourselves on offering a high standard of aftersales services throughout all our franchises. We understand that keeping your tyres in good condition means that your vehicle performs better and is more fuel efficient. Properly maintained and looked after tyres also mean that you're safer on the road. Tyres provide vital traction and grip whilst you're driving, and not getting your tyres checked may lead to a dangerous loss of stability.

It is also a legal requirement to have tyres that are healthy to drive, and the failure to maintain the quality of your vehicle's tyres could lead to points being added to your licence and a hefty fine.

To avoid the above please ensure you make a Tyre Check appointment with us. You can call us directly on 028 3855 0427 or submit an enquiry form using the form at the top of the page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
