Tyre Services

We offer a replacement tyre fitting service and puncture repairs for all makes and models. Choose your new tyres from leading manufacturers including Michelin, Pirelli, Continental, Good Year, Bridgestone and Dunlop. Whilst your having your tyres fitted we can also offer wheel balancing and four wheel alignment to minimise tyre wear and improve safety and performance. Customers are advised to book in advance so we can make sure your tyres are in stock.

Wheel Re-alignment

Is the steering on your car pulling to one side, or the steering wheel crooked whilst driving straight?  Are your tyres wearing unevenly? – These are common symptoms that your wheel alignment is out. It may be that you’ve hit a pot hole in the road, or just regular bumps in the road have knocked the alignment out. We have the latest four wheel alignment equipment to realign your wheels, ensuring your vehicle both handles safely and is more economical on fuel and tyres.

Customer Reviews

Absolutely first class service. Had us back on the road in no time at all. Cannot recommend them highly enough. So helpful and kind, efficient and courteous. Top class. *****
Francesca Sagrera
I moved to Chelmsford about 5 years ago and was recommended to SLP Autos for an MOT test and service by friends. I have been using SLP ever since. You are always made to feel welcome by the reception team and they will always do their best to make everything as easy as possible, everything is explained either by them or one of the technicians and you are offered a cup of tea while you wait. The mechanics are all excellent – you can tell from speaking to them that they have the expertise and experience to know exactly what they are doing with all aspects of fault finding, servicing and repairs. Great service, great value. Highly recommended
Dean, Springfield
Had my car serviced here recently and was very pleased with the service. Very friendly and professional. They even washed my car.
Les Hack
After breaking down with my German Shepherd, who is very vocal at times, we were slotted in (Even though they were very busy) and made to feel very welcome, the mechanic explained in detail what was going on with the car. Very friendly, welcoming and hopefully wont be back soon, but if I do need a repair, you will be my first port of call.
Karen Goodyear
MOT for a Motorbike. Easy booking on website, fast response to confirm. Bit tucked away on industrial estate but only 10min from Chelmsford. Pleasant waiting area, fast and prompt service from them. Will use again. Thanks.
