To finish off this post I would like to mention a special car that we had call in this week for a set of Bridgestone Tyres Fitted. for the Aston Martin
All this nice sunny weather is bringing all sorts of cars in for different things, as motorists prepare their cars for the summer holidays, that are coming up in the near future. As you can imagine this can be a busy time for garages all up and down the country as customers want all the little jobs doing that have been put off, before they set off on their journey.
One of the things that has hit us most, is the number of cars wanting the Air-Conditioning looking at. At times we could have done with two machines, there was such a rush from the customers to get their air-con seen to(no signs of a recession here). Another problem that affects the motorists in hot weather is the brakes. We will start getting phone calls in the near future from people with noisy and squeaking brakes as the hot dry weather start to take its toll on the brake pads. All the dust from the pads and from the dry roads, start to accumulate between the pads and the discs and build to make the brakes very noisy and requiring attention from the garages.
Wiper blades also wear faster in the heat. The build up of dust and insects require us to use our wipers more often. In the winter time we use the wipers to clear away the water from rain and snow,but in summer we use them to clear away dirt and insects and so they will not use as much water and therefore come under pressure from friction, and friction means greater wear thus they wear out much quicker, so make sure that your window wash bottle is always full and the correct anti-smear washer liquid is used, there is nothing worse than a smeared windscreen with the Sun shining through the screen and you can not see anything.
Special car for a set of new tyres
To finish off this post I would like to mention a special car that we had call in this week for a set of Bridgestone Tyres Fitted. The car was a beautiful Aston Martin Rapide in a silver colour, what a beauty ?.
The car was fitted with Bridgestone Tyres Fitted S001-AMR that are made specially for this model of car and the sizes were rear 295/35×20 and the fronts were 245/40×20. It always makes me proud that customers trust us to have Bridgestone Tyres Fitted on these very expensive cars, and this is why we always keep up to date with the best fitting machines and of course my excellent fitters led by Alex Bray. The tyres were over £1000.00 for the set and the customer let me use a few pictures of his car for my blog, many thanks to him.
Thanks Eric Roberts…
