For the safety of both Mr Tyre Customers and Staff, we are implementing a face-covering policy. In all of our branch network, the staff will be wearing face masks/face coverings while in the reception area and we ask that all customers respect these rules and wear a face covering while visiting.
These face coverings do not have to be shop-bought face masks, they can be made from home using any cloth or textile material, however, they must cover your mouth and nose for the duration of your visit. If you do not have a face mask or covering we will be happy to serve you outside of the reception area. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please make this known immediately on arrival.

Update – 24/3/2020
The Prime Minister announced the latest measures that the government is taking in response to the Coronavirus pandemic and Mr Tyre fully supports the government’s approach to the crisis.
Currently, Mr Tyre branches remain open and operational but as the situation with COVID-19 develops, Mr Tyre will continue to take the spread of Coronavirus very seriously and will monitor and review the situation in line with the latest government guidelines.
In these unprecedented times, it is absolutely vital that all key workers, in particular emergency workers, transport workers, council workers, remaining school personnel and the wider community have access to our services such as MOT testing, vehicle repairs, tyres, tyre repairs and general maintenance products.
It is imperative that these customers can keep their vehicles roadworthy and safe and it is essential that our staff play their vital part in keeping the road transport network moving.
Our priority is always the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers, and we consider this when making any decisions. We are ensuring that Health and Safety guidelines are being followed at all our branches and we request that customers always assist our staff in achieving safe distancing protocols.
