Tyres are the most important performance components on your Aston Martin. Whether you are accelerating, braking or steering, your safety and enjoyment depend on the four contact patches between tyres and road surface.
So it’s essential that your Aston Martin is fitted with tyres that are in good condition and of a type recommended for the model by the factory.
Although the minimum legal tread depth (across at least 75% of the tread) is 1.6mm, the braking capability and grip of a tyre is seriously reduced once the tread depth is less than 3mm. When braking in the wet, this difference becomes all the more dramatic.
We’ll be happy to inspect your tyres – including checking for sidewall damage – and provide an estimate for the cost of replacement, if needed. We can offer a range of premium tyres at competitive prices, fitted and balanced with care.
Winter tyres – a gripping investment. Winter tyres aren’t just for ice and snow. And contrary to a still-popular myth, they don’t damage the surface of the road, either (that’s the studded variety). Winter tyres simply use rubber of a different compound to all-year tyres, with a tread design that’s more efficient at clearing rain and snow.
Many of our customers are surprised to learn that winter tyres grip better whenever the temperature falls below around 7°C. That’s most of the UK winter. Your braking distances will be shorter, the car will corner better and even tyre wear will be lower if you use the right tyre at the right time of year. Braking on an icy road at 20mph, your braking distance will be shorter by 11 metres when using winter tyres. They’re both a safer choice and a performance enhancement.
We offer Aston Martin Winter Wheel and Tyre Kits for all current models, enabling you to enjoy your Aston Martin in all weathers. The kits consist of wheels, tyres and wheel centre badges. Optional Tyre Pressure Monitoring Sensors (TPMS) are also available. The kits are excellent value and offer a significant saving over the purchase of the individual components.
