All Mobile Tyres prices for tyres include on-site fitting and wheel balancing. We do not charge to dispose of the old tyre.
This means a tyre for a 4X4 or “off road” vehicle.

6PR means 6 ply. These are tyres used on light commercial vehicles and are constructed using extra reinforcing called ‘ply’. Most car tyres are 4ply construction.
ROF indicates Run On Flat, which is basically a run-flat tyre. Reinforced tyres were mostly fitted on to small / light vans, people carriers and some 4X4 vehicles and estate cars. More recently, car manufactures such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes etc, have been using a new type of reinforced tyre.
These tyres are high-performance, low profile tyres and come as original equipment on high-performance cars. They are able to run at speeds up to 80km/h with no pressure. The extra load carrying capability gives these tyres more rigidity, enhancing the road holding.
The legal limit for the tread of the tyre is 1.6mm across ¾ of the tread pattern. Your tyre should be replaced if any of the following defects are visible:
All of our mobile fitment units are equipped with state-of-the-art tyre changing machines, electronic tyre balancing machines and a compressor to inflate the tyres. All similar to the equipment you would expect to see in a traditional tyre fitment center – but with Mobile Tyres, the tyre fitment center comes to you and you don’t have to pay for this high business overhead!
The speed rating is marked on the side wall of the tyre and indicates the maximum speed at which the tyre can carry the load corresponding with its load index. Example 91V.
“T” rated tyres are designed to carry their load up to 190KmPH
“H” rated tyres are designed to carry their load up to 210KmPH
“V” rated tyres are designed to carry their load no faster than 240KmPH
Tyres marked with a “W” and “Y” is designed to go faster than 270KmPH but no faster then 300KmPH respectively.
The “W” & “Y” ratings usually appear with the ZR rating. The “ZR” rating without a “W” or “Y” indicates 240KmPH.
The current range of speed rating symbols and their maximum speed definition is shown below:
Even if you do not drive at these speeds, the correct specification is essential in order to comply with the vehicle manufactures recommendation and your insurance policy.
