Specialist Motorcycle Tyre Fitting
SMC is the place to come for all your motorcycle tyre needs. We are the only garage locally to have dedicated motorcycle tyre change machines ensuring the very best of care is taken with your rims.
We have a wide range of tyres in stock and have built an excellent reputation for service, quality and care. We fit tyres to a wide range of machines ranging from sports bikes, custom/cruisers, scooters, adventure bikes and motocross bikes – to name but a few. We regularly fit tyres to machines such as Ducati, Aprilia, MV, Harley Davidson, BMW, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Triumph, Suzuki and KTM.
We are fully approved and authorised suppliers of Pirelli, Metzeler, Michelin, Maxxis, Bridgestone, Dunlop and Avon tyres. If your tyre is not in stock we can obtain them on a same-day or next-day basis ensuring you are not off the road for too long.
We can supply motorbike tyres and fit them on a ride-in ride-out basis but also fit tyres to loose wheels if required.
What we won’t do is…
- Use an air-gun to tighten your bolts – Everything will be torqued to the correct settings as per the manufacturers specifications
- Rush a job – We will take our time and, if needed, wrap up your brake calipers, etc so that we don’t accidentally scratch or ‘dink’ your rims
- Use tyre levers to take off or put on tyres – You can do this in your own garage and don’t need us for that!!
Book Online Now
With our motorcycle tyre fitting service, you can book a slot online which secures your appointment with us. We ask you to pay a £25* deposit online to secure that slot, with the balance being paid when the work is complete.
When you book online, we’ll ask you for some information about your bike/tyres to ensure that your tyres are ready and waiting when you arrive.
We take pride in the care and attention that we lavish on your bike while it’s with us, so tyre fitting slots are 1 hour long per tyre – so if you need both tyres replacing, you will need two slots.
Please note: Online bookings not available for same-day. If you want to book for today then please call 07803 609216.
*For online bookings, a small booking fee will be charged.
Hofmann Moto11 machine
SMC are proud to have invested in the state-of-the-art Hofmann Moto 11 dedicated motorcycle tyre changer and Moto 200 tyre balancers.
This Moto 11 tyre-changer is a semi-automatic, dedicated, motorcycle tyre changer with a heavy duty construction and space saving ‘swing arm’ design. The unique twin assist arm system ensures all rims and tyres are handled with ease and with maximum care.
All of the clamps, blades, and any other object for that matter, are all plastic or rubber lined therefore ensuring that no harm comes to your prized rims. This means that SMC are able to change any size of motorcycle tyre.
It is to be noted too that although we offer a ride-in ride-out tyre change service, you may be asked to leave your machine with us for a short while. This is to ensure that we are not ‘rushed’ into changing your tyres or working on your machine as this is when mistakes can happen. As stated before, if we were working on our own machines then time and the utmost care would be taken and we offer nothing less for your machines!
We are extremely proud that, in the six years we have been servicing tyres, we have never scratched or damaged rims so far – and don’t intend to do so anytime soon!
Investing in these machines has meant that SMC are one of the few motorcycle garages in the Midlands that are able to change tyres on Carbon or Magnesium rims without causing damage to them.
Why not ask your local garage if they are prepared to change tyres on your Carbon rims…
