What is automatic Tyre fitting?
Here at Blackboots Tyres Chesham, tyre fitting includes the latest in fitting technology. We know that when you invest in a quality car or van and smart wheels that go with it you are keen to keep the wheels in pristine condition. Regular tyre fitting can sometime cause damage to polished or painted rims. You’ve taken the trouble to avoid all those kerbs and potholes, so you don’t want your wheels to be damaged by some pesky mechanic manhandling your rims to fit new tyres. We work on many of our customers prized and often priceless cars and that it why we have invested in the Boss Tyre Changer. A fully automatic and ‘Touchless’ system that embraces the wheel and caresses the tyres off the rims, gently, precisely and without any risk of damage.
The Boss Touchless Tyre Machine radically changes the traditional approach to tyre fitting. The fully automated tyre fitting service caters for today’s bigger rims and wider tyres. The wheel is held securely and the tyre removed effortlessly. Refitting the tyre is just like magic: no damage to the rim or your tyre.

Try Nitrogen Inflation When Next Fitting Tyres
The Uniflate Nitrogen Inflation System ensures your new tyre is inflated to perfection. All this together with Blackboots Tyre Fitting expertise means your car will never have had such a professional tyre and wheel fitting service since it left the factory.
Nitrogen inflation helps maintain constant tyre pressures longer offering the following benefits:
- Better handling and road holding
- Reduces tread wear and increases tyre life by up to 25%
- Correct inflation pressures reduce puncture risk by up to 33%
- Reduced rolling resistance improves miles per gallon by 2%
- Improved pressure retention
Sussex Police force, in the United Kingdom, carried out a roadside survey to check tyre pressures due to their concern with incorrectly inflated tyres. The check allowed a +/- 5psi tolerance against recommended handbook pressures. The results of the survey were that 73% of all cars checked had incorrect pressures.
Police also check the tyre pressures of every car involved in a road traffic accident in the UK. This data shows that 86% of vehicles involved in road traffic accidents have incorrect tyre pressures. Read the full article here
Why change tyres at 3mm tyre tread depth?
Did you know that Police, Ambulance & Fire Brigade vehicle tyres are changed at 3mm tyre tread depth? Because vehicle safety and performance suffers severely when tyres are worn below 3mm. The difference between the average braking distance of a vehicle driving at 50 mph with 3mm of tyre tread depth, compared to the same vehicle with the current legal limit of 1.6mm is the equivalent to the length of a double decker bus – FACT.
The concept is that as the depth of tread diminishes the capacity to disperse water is reduced. In wet conditions the risk of aquaplaning is considerably increased.
The difference between 1.6mm and 3.0mm tyre tread
Take a look at this short video from Continental Tyres explaining just how much difference in stopping distances there is between tyres with 1.6mm and 3.0mm treads.
Blackboots recommend that new tyres are fitted at no less than 3mm.
The legal minimum tread depth for car tyres is 1.6mm
(throughout the central three quarters of the breath of the tread and round the entire outer circumference of the tyre.)
