When it comes to tyres, there’s a lot to think about and keep in mind. In this section you’ll find everything you need to know to get the best from your tyres. At SEAT we not only sell tyres at competitive prices, but we have highly qualified, trained technicians that know your SEAT. Rest assured we’ll offer you the right product at the right price.
Our priority is your safety, as well as the optimal performance of your SEAT, which is why we encourage you to regularly check your tyres, including tyre pressure, general wear and tear and tread depth.
Winter tyres are specifically designed to operate in cold conditions to improve grip and reduce stopping distances, so make sure you're prepared for the chilly weather ahead.
Whenever you need them, we’ve got them. At SEAT, we source tyres directly from the manufacturers so you get the best choice for your model at the most competitive prices.
At SEAT, we want to ensure that your tyres comply with the legal requirements, which means being safe on the roads. That’s why we're members of one of the UK’s leading tyre safety organisations.
Q. Do I have to pay an environmental charge for tyres removed from my car?
A. Most tyre retailers apply an environmental charge to remove and responsibly dispose of old tyres. These old tyres can no longer be dumped in landfill sites, and many are used as a fuel source to power cement kilns.
Q. How can I find out if my tyre can be repaired following a puncture?
A. Minor repairs to passenger and light van tyres must be carried out in accordance with the recommendations in the British Standard BS AU 159. Your SEAT dealer will advise if a repair is possible.
Q. Do I have to fit winter tyres in the winter?
A. In the UK, fitting winter tyres isn't a legal requirement, although some choose to switch to winter tyres at the appropriate time of the year. UK drivers travelling to certain European countries may be required to fit winter tyres. Please check the local laws before travelling
Q. Are tyres recycled?
A. Almost all tyres scrapped here in the UK are disposed of in a reasonable manner. Some are re-treaded and therefore have a second or even third life. For example, some tyres are recycled and used in children's play areas. Many tyres that cannot be re-used are used as a fuel source at cement kilns.
Q. How many miles can I get from my set of tyres?
A. Tyre life depends on how they're used. A set of well-maintained tyres used exclusively on motorways can get much higher mileage, versus tyres that are badly maintained and driven in a city centre and urban environment.
Q. How can I find out the correct pressure from my tyres?
A. You'll find this information in the car manufacturer's handbook, and at many tyre retailers they'll have a pressure chart to consult. Failing that, you can get in touch with the tyre manufacturer. Alternatively, click here to look up your pressures

The vehicle cannot be totally controlled or braked if the tyres (new or used) are worn or damaged.
