Reasons to Change Tyres for Petersfield Motorists

Higgins Mechanics t/a MTS work out of a popular workshop in Liphook where customers from the nearby Petersfield area are always made welcome. Book in for car repairs or new tyres with us and you’ll be benefiting from over 45 years of combined trade experience at a workshop that has covered Petersfield, Surrey and Hampshire since 1992.

While we have a full service range available, this page looks at two of our key services in a little more detail; car repairs and replacement tyres. While we understand that there are many garages in the Petersfield area which can provide you with these services, very few are as transparent over pricing or clearer over benefits as Higgins Mechanics t/a MTS.

Changing tyres is something that should be given serious consideration by all road users in Petersfield under any of the following circumstances:

  • When your existing tyres have a puncture that can’t be repaired
  • When current tyres are close to the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm
  • When signs of age, fatigue and stress are showing on an old set of tyres
  • When vehicle owners in Petersfield recognise clear signs of visible damage
  • When tyres wear abnormally in the centre, at the edges or in patches
  • When the tyres currently fitted aren’t suitable for your vehicle type

Knowing when to come in for new tyres is entirely different to knowing when car repairs are needed. While it’s easy for anybody in Petersfield to check the condition of their tyres regularly, nobody has a pair of magic glasses to show which engine faults might be imminent. Unfortunately, breakdowns tend to happen at the most inconvenient times.

Today’s more modern vehicles are equipped with an ECU, which controls factors within the engine to optimise performance. Regular diagnostic testing can help reduce the need for car repairs and will keep our Petersfield vehicle owners in pocket. Preventative maintenance is always a much better option than having to spend out more on expensive repair work.

If your car does suffer a breakdown, we advise you not to worry. Higgins Mechanics t/a MTS has helped many previous customers from the Petersfield areas with a range of high-end car repairs which include brake and clutch replacements, the fitting of new steering components, suspension changes and the repair of air conditioning systems.

We extend a warm welcome to vehicle owners from the Petersfield area who wish to discuss new tyres or car repairs with genuine local independent specialists.
