A new mobile tyre fitting company has hit the road in Burnley supplying specialist services to private vehicle owners and businesses.

Mr Chris Wood has set up the Hometyre franchise after a 25-year driving career.

Hometyre provides full, roadside, tyre fitting, repair and wheel balancing services to customers at a location of their choice, such as their home or workplace.

The service, which supplies and fits tyres for all types of cars, vans, caravans and motorhomes, covers the East Lancashire area.

Chris said: “Eight years ago I had a tyre blow-out on an articulated lorry on the M62 near Hull. Fortunately I could stop the vehicle safely.

“I’ve always taken a keen interest in tyres. Every time I had the tyres changed on my own car, I’d ask a lot of questions. The business idea grew from there.”

The Hometyre brand has been operating successfully since 2003 and it now covers over 20 geographical areas of the UK.

Hometyre managing director Andy Lawrence said: “Chris has become a valued member of our team. He’s genuinely focussed on delivery, good customer service and attention to detail.”
