Professional tire service

Tire fitting is precision work

Bosch Car Service Centers are equipped to ensure the correct fitting and balancing of wheels and tires. Bosch Car Service professionals can also support you when selecting new tires for your vehicle

Perfect service all round

Bosch Car Service workshops provide a full tire service for your car. We can advise you on which make to buy, fit and change winter and summer tires and provide expert storage should you wish. In addition to professional servicing and repair, our experts will also check the inflation pressure and tire tread. And on request we will be pleased to check the wheel alignment and make any necessary adjustments before fitting new tires to prevent one-sided or uneven tire wear.

Watch your tread!

Summer tires are required to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm by law. However we recommend replacement when the tread is down to 3 mm or 4 mm at the latest in the case of winter tires. An easy way of determining tread depth is to use a 2-euro coin (1-euro coin for summer tires). Insert the coin in the groove where the tread is most shallow – if the stars on the coin are no longer visible, you can happily carry on driving.

The "4 x 4 x 4" rule is also a good guide. In other words: Only drive on tires with a tread depth of at least 4 millimeters, with the same tread on all 4 wheels and which are not more than 4 years old.

Caught out in the cold

Have you ever been taken by surprise by snow and ice? If you are deliberately driving with summer tires in winter, you will have trouble convincing the police with such arguments. You can reckon with a 40.- euro fine and a penalty point. And your insurance company will not be prepared to pay for the damage if you are driving with the wrong tires. After all, the accident risk is always much higher in winter anyway.

So our advice is to always drive on winter tires from October till Easter. You can find further information and advice in our Tire Guide.

Our expert advice

Car tire rubber ages even when a car is not in use. So you should replace your tires every 10 years at the latest – even if the tread is hardly worn. The actual age of a tire can be seen from the four-digit DOT number stamped on it: The last two digits indicate the year of manufacture and the first two show the week of manufacture. For example: "2600" stands for week 26 in the year 2000.
