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.

YOUR SEAT TYRES

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

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.

TYRE REPLACEMENT

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.

TYRE SAFETY AND LEGISLATION

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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

WARNING

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

  • Incorrect use of wheels and tyres could make driving more dangerous and result in serious accidents and damage.
  • All four wheels must be fitted with radial tyres of the same type, size (rolling circumference) and the same tread pattern.
  • New tyres do not give maximum grip and will not have reached their maximum braking capacity to start with, and therefore need running in. To prevent accidents and major damage, extreme caution should be taken for the first 600km (370 miles).
  • Check tyre pressures regularly and ensure they are maintained at the pressures indicated. If the tyre pressure is too low, the tyres could over-heat resulting n tread detachment or even burst tyres.
  • Never drive on damaged (punctured, cut, cracked or dented) or worn tyres. Driving o damaged or worn tyres could result in burst tyres, serious accidents or damage. Worn or damaged tyres must be replaced immediately.
  • Never exceed the maximum permitted speed or loads specified for the type of tyre fitted on your vehicle.
  • The efficiency of driver and brake assist systems also depends on the grip of the tyres.
  • If you notice unusual vibration or if the vehicle pulls to one side when driving, stop the car immediately and check the tyres and wheels for damage.
  • To minimise the risk of losing control of the vehicle or causing a serious accident, never undo the bolted joints of beadlock wheels.
