    Always take my car to Gents garage for my MOT’s as it’s over the road from where I work, what a great bunch of staff there, really helpful and willing to help when you have a problem as l did with my VW Tiguan . I thought it needed a new thermostat or sender unit but they fixed it for me and l didn’t need either. Heating system is working great now and they also did an air conditioning... Read More

    Arrived unannounced with a puncture and Graham and his team rearranged their work schedule to be able to sort my puncture and get me back on the road. Graham himself carried out the work before going to lunch . Once again great service. Thanks.

    I’ve used Gent’s garage for years now for each of the cars I’ve had and I am very happy with the service they provide. I completely trust the work that they do on my car and I’ve never incurred any unnecessary expense. Everyone I’ve met there is friendly and It’s also a bonus that I get a lift to work when I drop my car off.

    Exceptional service after my car failed it’s MOT yesterday. Chris and Andy really looked after me. They took the time to explain the defects with my car, provided a quote and answered all my questions. I decided to go ahead with the repair. I expected to have to re-book for another day but they managed to get the required works done that same day! Wonderful service from a garage of genuinely... Read More

How do you know what size?

The size of your tyre is normally printed on the outside edge of your tyre.

But, if you can’t find it and need to know, don’t worry.

Just give us a call and we’ll guide you through where you can find it.

Minimum tyre tread levels

The legal tyre tread depth for cars in the UK is 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre.

To check your depth, just pop a 20p coin into the lowest tread depth of your tyre.

Can you see the rim? If so, your tyre tread is less than 3mm and needs to be checked by us immediately.

If you can’t see the rim, you’re good to go.

Wheel alignment and why you need it

Wheel alignment matters. However, it’s very often ignored. People regularly contend with speed bumps and potholes, but don’t consider the huge impact it has on the continued safety of driving.

In fact, wheel alignment not only drastically impacts your safety, but good alignment actually reduces tyre wear and improves fuel consumption. So, safety aside, having your wheels annually aligned actually saves you money.

How do I know if my wheel alignment is wrong?

It’s important to be aware of how your car is performing in consideration to your wheel alignment. Poor alignment causes accidents. If you’re experiencing any of the following, give us a call, as you could be unknowingly putting yourself at risk:

  • Vehicle pulling to the left or right
  • Uneven or rapid tyre wear
  • Your steering wheel is crooked when driving straight
  • Squealing tires

Can’t find your locking wheel nut?

The simple answer is to come and see us.

Rather than trying to find your wheel nut, then potentially damaging it (this happens very often) by trying to remove it yourself, just head to Gents Garage. We have a special kit to remove them. And, we’ll do it for a great price.

So, save yourself some time and stress, pop down to see us.
