Services - Free Tyre Pressure Check
When did you last check your tyre pressures?
At Ostle's Tyres, Galashiels, we offer a FREE MONTHLY TYRE PRESSURE CHECK to all local motorists and new customers. Tyres are the only link between your vehicle and the road, and this key check shouldn't be ignored.
Regularly checking your tyre pressures improves your safety on the road, saves money and is better for the environment. To give you peace of mind that your vehicle is getting the optimum performance from it's tyres, we recommend REGULAR VISUAL CHECKS for anything that could affect tyre pressure, such as nails, screws or loose debris. We would highly recommend checking your tyres before long journeys along with your spare tyre (if applicable).
Ideally when checking your own tyre pressures, only do so when the tyres are cold. We would recommend that your tyres have not been in use for approximately 2 hours, or have not covered more than 2 miles at high speeds to gain an accurate reading.
Tyre pressures are vital for balanced braking, optimum grip and tyre life. Each vehicle has a very specific recommended pressure, which can often be found in your handbook or inside the petrol cap.
If tyre pressures are inflated incorrectly and are not checked regularly, the following could apply.
- Accelerated tyre wear
- Excessive tyre heat created
- Increased fuel consumption
- Harder vehicle handling
- Increased braking distances
- Decreased tyre grip

What our customers think
“Many thanks to the team at Ostles for the excellent service after I had a puncture last weekend - they pulled out all the stops to get the puncture repaired & get me back on the road quickly, can't praise them highly enough - Top Class customer service, as always, Fiona”
“Absolutely first class service from Angela at the front desk area, and excellent service from the team at Ostles (Scotland) Ltd in Galashiels. Without doubt in my experience, the best tyre fitter and supplier in the Scottish Borders! The team are hospitable, caring, enthusiastic in assisting and advising, and very quick, but professional, in the turn around process. When I asked if I may possibly need wheel alignment, the chap who fitted the tyre even took the time out to check on a very impressive computer, and advised me with a clear look and thorough explanation on his screen, that at this stage I do not need to align them as the wheels were fairly well balanced, but to pop in every few months and they would be more than happy to look at it all again, and check the tyres at the same time. Personally, this really is the best by far, and I would not consider going anywhere elso for tyres or alignment in the future. Five stars to Ostles (and Angela). ”
“Again went to Ostle Tyres and recieved excellent service without having to wait long.”
