Tyres

We supply and fit all sizes and make of tyre’s.

If they’re not in stock we can order and fit usually the same day or if not within 24 hours.

Our Advice: The legal limit for your vehicle’s tyre tread is 1.6mm. If any of the tyre’s are found to be outside this legal limit it will result in 3 points per tyre put onto your driving licence.

Unsure if your tyre’s need changing then bring your car to Birkin and we’ll be happy to check them for you. Need your wheels balancing or tracking then call or ring

Exhausts

Exhausts can corrode from both the inside and outside. How long your exhaust lasts can depend on how far and how often you drive your car rather than the length of time it has been fitted.

Vehicles that are used for short trips have been known to experience exhaust corrosion in a much shorter period of time and distance than cars used mainly for long journeys.

If you hear any strange noises at all coming from your exhaust such as rattling or excessive roaring this would likely suggest that there is a problem with your exhaust system and you should bring your vehicle in so one of our highly trained technicians can examine the exhaust and help to diagnose the fault.

Batteries

Your car battery is at the heart of all your vehicle’s electrical systems, storing the energy built up by the vehicle until it is ready for use.

It is the only source of power to get your car started so it’s important that you check your battery regularly. Flat batteries are one of the main reasons for breakdown calls in the UK, especially on cold mornings, and you’ll only know something is wrong when your car doesn’t start.
