This is the first time I have used the order online service. I found it extremely useful to have all the tyre specs listed as I could take my time about choosing which tyres I wanted. The prices were good, the tyres were delivered to the depot on time and were fitted quickly when I arrived. Good service. Chris , Newport Pagnell

I used the Gloucester branch last year for our two cars and again this year. The staff are very helpful and friendly and they really try to do their best. This was our second service MOT of the year. I would like to commend the team although I only dealt with the manager and Chris who were behind the counter I am sure they rest are great as well, those that popped into the waiting area were friendly. It is nice to see the passion and care to the customer although not always appreciated by all as I saw this weekend. Would you let the team at Gloucester know as I think they should have their efforts noticed. Thank you A , Gloucester

Mar 20, 2014

Very impressed with efficiency both on-line and in the garage. They happily accommodated my needs to bring the vehicle in later than the standard time. Whilst the manager was arranging for my car to be brought round to me after completion two other staff members individually entered the reception and seeing me asked if I was being attended to.You have a good caring team at Gloucester and you will have all my future business. Alan , Gloucester

Mar 31, 2014

Mar 30, 2014

Nipped in on the off chance that I could get tyres fitted. Centre stated they were busy but managed to fit them within an hour. Manager was friendly and recommended best tyres for my budget. Will definately use again and recommend them to friends/family. Use National Tyres just up the road from the Mansfield branch last year and the overall experience at F1 was 10 times better. steven , Mansfield

Mar 25, 2014

Very friendly and helpful, almost an hour for my m.o.t though, but it did fail and were able to source a replacement part and fit within 90 minutes. Daniel , Swindon

Visited Shrewsbury branch twice in one week for new tyres then an MOT - best prices around on both counts. Dealt with four different members of staff who were all knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. Rarely do you find such consistent high standards in any one place of business. Well done to Chris and his team for such excellent service, I have already started recommending people to them G.Rossi , Shrewsbury

I took my wife's Zafira to Barnwell Road after a tracking problem was not properly diagnosed by another competitor. Sean the mechanic was brilliant and as well as diagnosing the problem also pointed out a major safety issue with the brakes, which were then rectified.

Why check your tyre pressure?

As a result of rubber's natural permeability, your tyres could be losing air pressure at a rate of up to two pounds each month (often more in warmer weather conditions).

For this reason, Formula One Autocentres recommend that you check your tyres as regularly as possible - ideally every couple of weeks.

Find your vehicle's correct tyre pressure here…

Correctly inflated tyres - the benefits:

1. Safety - Having the correct tyre pressure enhances the safety of your vehicle, improving not only its ability to hold the road, but also its braking efficiency. Under-inflated tyres are prone to overheat, whilst over-inflation can seriously affect the road handling of your vehicle.

2. Economy - Correct tyre pressure helps prolong the life of your tyres, which saves you money. Under-inflated tyres also have increased rolling resistance, raising the amount of fuel required to maintain a steady speed.

3. Environment - Maintaining the correct tyre pressure is helpful to the environment too. By reducing fuel consumption, you'll also be reducing your vehicle's CO2 emissions - and doing your bit to save our planet.
