Car Tyres

We stock most leading brands along with midrange and economy ranges at very competitive prices. We have the most up to date equipment and workshops in the area. We can re-programme and reset TPMS valves and also replace and repair hybrid valves.

We will check your tyres free of charge and there’s no need to book. We only advise you to change your tyres when you actually need to.

All major manufacturers put tread wear indicators into the grooves of their tyres, so that when they are flush with the main surface of the tyres, you will know it’s time to change your tyres.

You should check your tyre pressures every two weeks and before any long trip to ensure they meet the manufactures recommendations. Visually check your tyres for cuts, cracks or bulges as these can lead to slow punctures or blow-outs.

Winter Tyres

Winter weather and freezing temperatures can create hazardous driving conditions. That’s why many drivers choose to fit winter tyres to their car during the colder months. Fitting winter tyres to your car improves driving safety. Winter tyres are designed to improve the road handling of your car when the temperature drops. They have a softer rubber compound, along with deeper grooves and narrow cuts, called sipes, built into the tread. These features help disperse water/snow, and allow the rubber to flex, improving traction and grip in cold conditions.

You can identify winter tyres by the symbols on the sidewall. These are the M+S symbol and the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol, and both are industry standards.

Winter tyres work best at temperatures below seven degrees Celsius. On snow, the gap widens considerably, as the sipes on winter tyres offer grip even when the tread is packed with soft snow. In such conditions, a two-wheel-drive car with winter tyres is invariably safer than 4×4 on summer tyres.

All-Season Tyres

All-season and all-weather tyres offer excellent grip in wet and wintry conditions, while their softer rubber compound can also improve your vehicle’s road handling and comfort in the summer months. All-season tyres are designed to provide a compromise between the characteristics of summer and winter tyres – so that you can have great performance all year round.

They are designed to be used in a wide range of conditions, including dry and wet roads, as well as snow and ice. They can also be used in extreme heat and difficult terrain.

All-season tyres usually feature a wider and deeper tread profile, which provides better road handling in the rain by dispersing water quicker than standard tyres.

If you plan to use your car in harsh weather conditions then specialised summer or winter tyres may still be your best choice, but it’s worth noting that all-season tyres provide an option for all 12 months of the year, which means you don’t have to swap the wheels twice a year and find a place to store your summer/winter tyres when they aren’t in use.

Bike Tyres

We are pleased to offer a ride-in service for bike tyres. Over the years, Ian Brown Tyres has become a recognised force in supplying and fitting motorbike tyres. Our trained staff know their bikes well – we fit tyres to bikes according to the manufacturers’ recommendations. Our customers seem to agree – they come not only from Malton, but from all over North Yorkshire. Whether you are looking for tyres for a sportsbike, a custom motorbike, a tourer or a scooter, we can supply most brands at competitive prices.

The legal limit for a bike tyre is 1mm of tread depth.

Tyres on motorcycles, even more so than on other vehicles, are vital for the safe performance and handling of the bike. Regular maintenance is essential to keep your tyres in top condition.

Always ensure that both front and rear tyres are correctly inflated and check tyre pressure regularly. Tyre pressure has a direct influence on the performance and wear of your tyres.

In order for your new tyres to provide optimum performance we strongly advise that they should be ridden very cautiously for at least the first 60 miles in order to condition and settle them on the rim, this allows the tread surface to be “scuffed-in” and function properly.

Although we stock a wide range of tyres it is advisable to phone the office to check availability.

Car/Bike Tyre Puncture Repairs

Approx half of all flat tyres caused by a puncture can be repaired safely and without too much expense or even the need for a replacement tyre.

The most important thing that you can do to help the chances of your puncture being repairable is to not drive on it when it is flat – driving for even a few hundred metres on a flat tyre can damage it and make it irreparable. Putting your spare tyre on and visiting your nearest garage can save you the cost of a new tyre.

Tyre repair is a technical process that is covered by the British Standard that has strict guidelines on how and when a tyre can be repaired.

We also have an on-site facility for hot cure vulcanised repairs, which can be used, for example, to safely repair thorn holes in tyre shoulders. This process takes a little longer than a straightforward puncture repair, so you will need to leave the affected tyre with us for half a day.

If there is any doubt as to whether a tyre should or should not be repaired, we will not repair it and advise you of the safety concerns and reasoning behind this.

Commercial Tyres

We can offer a wide range of HGV and van tyres. As with car tyres, we offer a drive-in service for repair or replacement.

Our commercial breakdown vehicles are well equipped making our on-site commercial service one of the best in the area.

We provide a 24 hour breakdown service locally, or nationally through an Independent Tyre Network.
