Test fitting

We are happy to fit our tyres to wheels to help assess fit, clearance and aesthetic suitability for a vehicle. Specialist sports and kit-built vehicles will typically benefit from this service.

 Vehicles in for test fitting can’t be driven on the road, but we find the static test fitting highlights all potential problems and allows tyres to be bought in confidence.

This work can only be done at our Beaulieu depot and is chargeable at £50 plus VAT an hour (including all fitting and balancing work). Call Ben on 01590 612261 to make a test fitting appointment.

Our tyre fitting policy

Vintage Tyres’ fitting staff reserve the right to refuse to fit tyres to rims that they deem to be damaged or unfit for use.

Vintage Tyres’ fitting staff will fit tyre/s not supplied by Vintage Tyres*, however, the following criteria must be met: tyres must be no more than eight years old (by date code on the sidewall), must have a tread depth of 2mm or more and must show no signs of damage through previous fitting or road use.

Vintage Tyres’ fitting staff will replace inner tubes in customer-supplied tyre/s as long as the tyre/s meet the criteria above.

Vintage Tyres’ fitting staff will not fit an inner tube by way of repair to a tubeless tyre unless that tyre is being fitted to a rim that requires an inner tube (a ‘wire wheel’ for example).

Vintage Tyres’ fitting staff will balance customer-supplied rim and tyre combinations as long the rim/s are not damaged or unfit for use and the tyres meet the age, tread and damage criteria noted above.

Some wheel and tyre types can’t be balanced. The fitter will advise if this is the case.

*Vintage Tyres does not stock, supply or fit Blockley Tyres.
